Apart from my weight, what other ‘numbers’ should I keep an eye on for my health – and particularly my heart health?
To look after your health, it’s a good idea to look at both measurable health markers and personal goals to help keep you on track.
At TerryWhite Chemmart, our Heart Health Check covers five ‘measures’ – blood pressure, total cholesterol, random blood glucose,
Body Mass Index and waist measurement. These provide a baseline of your health risks, which your pharmacist will explain to you.
You should also think about the personal health goals that matter to you and your lifestyle. For example, do you want to have more energy or feel more comfortable in your clothes?
These goals can help you to stay motivated beyond any initial weight loss you achieve.
