It is important to periodically check your state of health. Not having enough time leads us to put off important check-ups, thereby neglecting our health. Today certain immediate diagnostic tests can be done at the pharmacy. The metabolic check measures blood pressure and other parameters such as blood sugar, total cholesterol, HDL (good) cholesterol and lipid profile. The examination is carried out on a drop of blood directly from the patient’s fingertip and the results, available after a short time, will allow you to monitor your state of health and intervene promptly where necessary.
This indicates the force with which blood is pushed through the blood vessels.
This denotes the plasma cholesterol concentration. Together with HDL cholesterol, it is used to define cardiovascular risk.
The portion of cholesterol that keeps arteries free from bad cholesterol. The higher this value, the lower the cardiovascular risk.
This is a form of fat present in the blood, partly derived from food and partly formed within the body to store energy. High concentrations represent major risk factors for heart, liver and pancreas disease.
This is the blood glucose concentration.
This is based on the relationship between total and HDL cholesterol. This value must be less than 5 in men and less than 4.5 in women.
The necessary equipment may already be available in the pharmacy or it can be provided as an additional service:
After the check-up, the professional service provider will offer a brief consultation regarding the obtained results.
