If you would like to know more about your heart health – then make an appointment for a Health Check. It only takes about 20 minutes, and involves getting your blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol measured, as well as calculating your body mass index (BMI) and waist measurements.
During the Health Check, a pharmacist will also provide advice specific to your heart’s health, and suggest lifestyle changes to help reduce your risk of developing heart disease and/or prevent an existing condition from getting worse. If required, the pharmacist will provide a referral to your GP for further investigation.
We can also assist with:
Blood pressure monitors: If you need to monitor your blood pressure regularly or want the convenience of testing at home, ask about our range of quality blood pressure monitors. We’ll help you to decide on what’s best for you and show you techniques to ensure you are testing correctly.
Pedometers: To motivate you to reach your exercise goals
Weight Loss: We can give advice about healthy eating and exercise through our weight management programs.
Quit Smoking: If you’re looking to quit smoking, we have a range of Nicotine Replacement Therapies (NRT), which can help double your chance of quitting successfully. We recommend talking to our pharmacist on finding the right NRT for you.
Vitamins and Supplements: Our qualified Naturopath can suggest vitamins and supplements that may assist in supporting your heart and reducing cholesterol.
Manage your medications: If you have been prescribed medication for a heart condition, our pharmacists can help you understand your medicines with a Medication Review.
