Blood Pressure and Body Composition Analysis
Another part of my service to clients is free blood pressure check-ups.
I can also give advice on how to change your diet and lifestyle to encourage a healthy blood pressure measurement.
I register annually with Blood Pressure UK to take part in their “Know Your Numbers” campaign to encourage members of the public to get their blood pressure checked. Every September during ‘Blood Pressure Week’, I register the clinic to become one of the recognised “Blood Pressure Stations” in the UK. This is to invite members of the public to come and get their blood pressure checked. Undiagnosed high blood pressure can be a silent killer so I encourage anyone, who doesn’t know what their blood pressure is, to get a free check during one of the organised ‘walk in’ blood pressure clinics I offer.
This analyser provides accurate body composition results (such as body fat percentage and body fat mass) using the latest advanced Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) technology.
This gives you a true indicator of your inner health.
With regular check-ups we can monitor your progress as you try to improve your health and wellbeing through exercise, diet and lifestyle.
BODY FAT PERCENTAGE AND BODY FAT MASS
Body Fat Percentage is the proportion of fat to the total body weight. Body Fat Mass is the actual weight of fat in your body.
Body fat is essential for maintaining body temperature, cushioning joints and protecting internal organs.
The energy (or calories) that our body needs comes from what we eat and drink. Energy is burned through physical activity and general bodily functions. If you consume the same number of calories as you burn, all the calories are converted into energy. But if you consume more than you burn, excess calories are stored in fat cells. If this stored fat is not converted into energy later, it creates excess body fat.
Too much fat can damage your long-term health.
Reducing excess levels of body fat has been shown to directly reduce the risk of certain conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and certain cancers.
Too little body fat is also undesirable as this may lead to osteoporosis in later years, irregular periods in women and possible infertility.
Using this analyser, I can offer you advice and support to improve your diet and activity levels to bring your body composition measurements into normal healthy levels.
