Your personal results
A few weeks after the physical examination you will receive your personal results together with a short explanation. These results 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. We 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 are sent to your e-mail address:
The glucose level in the blood reflects the blood sugar level. Glucose is used as fuel in the body, but if the glucose level increases, there is a higher 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 value indicates whether you have enough red blood cells in you blood. If you Hb is low you may have anaemia.
Thrombocytes are platelets that cause clotting of the blood, for instance when we cut ourselves. After an infection, values can stay either low of high for some time.
Cholesterol and triglycerides
Cholesterol and triglycerides are fats in the body that are used as building materials and fuel, and as such are very important. However, disruptions in these fats can cause damage to the arteries and the heart in the long term.
Creatinine measured in blood and microalbumin/creatinine ratio measured in urine
These values both provide information about the kidney function.
Blood pressure (systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure)
If your blood pressure is too high over an extended period of time, it can ultimately lead to damage to your heart and blood vessels.
Body mass index (BMI)
This is an indicator for your weight. Being overweight increases the risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular diseases. Being underweight can also be harmful to you health.
