Your personal results
A few weeks after the physical examination, you will receive your personal results together with a short explanation. These results will contain the levels for a number of important risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as your blood pressure, blood sugar level, and cholesterol. Below you can read about the specific results you can expect to receive. We will also send these results to your general practitioner (GP). If you don’t want your GP to receive this information, you unfortunately won’t be able to take part in the study.
Personal results that will be sent to your home address:
The glucose level in the blood reflects the blood sugar level. The body uses glucose as fuel. If the glucose level is raised, there is a greater risk of diabetes.
HbA1c reflects the blood sugar level over a longer period of time. The HbA1c content is an indicator of the average blood sugar level over the previous 6 weeks.
The Hb level shows whether there are enough red blood cells in the blood. If your Hb level is low, you might be anaemic.
Triglycerides and cholesterol
Triglycerides and cholesterol are fats our body uses as building blocks and fuel, which means they are essential to us. But over time, imbalances in these fats can result in damage to the blood vessels and heart.
Creatinine and microalbumin/creatinine ratio
Both of these levels provide information on how the kidneys are functioning.
Blood pressure (systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure)
If your blood pressure is too high for a long period, this can result in damage to the heart and blood vessels.
Body mass index (BMI)
This is an indicator of your weight. Overweight increases the risk of developing diabetes, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular disease.
An electrocardiogram or ECG records the electrical activity of the heart muscle. This can provide information about how the heart muscle is functioning.
