We all know that health is our greatest wealth, and another age-old adage is that prevention is better than cure. In many ways, Hip & Healthy is built upon these two ideas. We strongly believe that our own well-being is paramount to all other things in life, and taking ownership and control over our own health is one of the most empowering and positive things we can do for ourselves. This is why we are delighted to partner with Randox Health this month, a company that is at the frontier of preventive care and helps customers get back in the driving seat of their own destiny.
Randox has been operating for over 40 years, using hundreds of sensitive blood tests that can not only diagnose existing conditions but also identify the early warning signs of an illness looming allowing customers to adjust their lifestyle and hopefully stop the illness in its tracks before it becomes a problem. Their pioneering tests use patented Randox technology and give you unrivalled knowledge about your current and future health.
No matter what stage of life you are at, it is highly likely that you would benefit from one of their comprehensive tests. And to make things easier for you, Randox has created different packages based on what insights you are looking to gain:
The Everywoman Health Check
This comprehensive 12-month programme is one of Randox’s most popular as it includes two full health checks per year to help you understand, track, and improve your overall health. Up to 150 data points linked to key health areas are measured during each visit and a personalised health plan summarising results is provided to help customers make the changes required in order to stay healthy. You’ll then get an opportunity to discuss any key findings with one of their scientific experts so that you can rest assured that you’ll be able to design the life that helps you to become the best version of yourself.
Signature Health Programme
For a more in-depth overview, our cutting-edge Signature programme provides exclusive access to the complete Randox Health portfolio and comprises up to 350 data points linked to key health areas. Two full health checks are included in the 12-month programme along with a follow-up consultation with a GP who can recommend additional tests including genetic testing if required.
Female Health Checks
The Female Hormone Check measures eight key hormones from a simple blood test including oestradiol, progesterone, follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinising hormone, prolactin, testosterone, sex hormone-binding globulin and free androgen index to give a comprehensive overview of hormonal health. Hormone imbalances can affect everything from fertility to mood, and weight to energy levels.
The AMH Check is a measure of ovarian reserve in females – for some context ovarian reserve refers to the reproductive potential left within a woman’s two ovaries based on the number and quality of eggs. Diminished ovarian reserve is the loss of normal reproductive potential in the ovaries due to a lower count or quality of the remaining eggs. With Randox Health females can easily find out if their AMH level is normal for their age.
If you have just had a baby or are pregnant then there is also the Everymother Health Programme, which is a comprehensive health check designed to keep expecting mothers informed about their health prenatal and postpartum. Up to 150 data points linked to key health areas measured at both 2nd trimester and 12 weeks postpartum, with specific nutritional testing during the 3rd trimester. After which, a personalised health plan is provided along with a follow-up consultation after 2nd trimester and postpartum screens to review results and key findings ensuring that mothers are looking after themselves during one of the most challenging times.
It is fair to say that we could probably all use a little inside knowledge when it comes to our health and wellbeing – and that is exactly what Randox does – provides you with the inside track on the state of play your health is really at. So that you can address any problems and pre-empt anything that might come along in the future – helping you to live happier and healthier for longer!
