Blood Pressure, Diabetes and Cholesterol

Keep your heart healthy and diabetes at bay by using our Diabetes, Cholesterol and Blood pressure services.

The glucose and cholesterol tests are quick and pain-free, requiring only 1-2 small droplets of blood taken from the finger. The blood droplet is then placed on a cassette or strip that is inserted into a meter and the results are produced within a few minutes.

The Blood Pressure test is of great importance as hypertension (high blood pressure) usually demonstrates no symptoms, but can increase vastly your risk of heart disease and stroke. Our pharmacist will advise you how to control your high blood pressure through lifestyle changes or refer you to the doctor when necessary.

The Cholesterol blood test measures the total cholesterol, LDL (bad) cholesterol, HDL (good) cholesterol and the ratio between them. We recommend a fasting blood test to obtain a clinically relevant result. Therefore, please ensure that you have not eaten anything for at least five hours before the test. However, we suggest that you remain well hydrated by drinking enough water.

Plasma Glucose or HbA1c tests are recommended for people who are overweight as they are at risk of developing high blood glucose, leading to Diabetes. Untreated, Diabetes can lead to increased risk of heart disease and stroke.

The Health Checks PLUS service is a NHS supported service that is available for free at Rose Pharmacy for those that are eligible. It is part of a national scheme to help prevent the onset of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease, dementia and other conditions.

In partnership with Clinicheck, Rose Pharmacy is able to offer our clients an extensive range of diagnostic tests and private medical services that can be made available from our premises in Greenwich.
