  • Oral glucose tolerance

NHS Health check

If you are between 40 and 74 years old, the NHS Health Check is a great way to assess your risk for a number of long term health conditions such as:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Kidney disease
  • Some forms of dementia, such as Alzheimer’s disease

The NHS Health Check involves completing a health questionnaire and a number of tests will be performed, including a blood pressure check, having your height and weight measured and having a blood test.
