Physical health-checks

Once treatment has started, it’s important to have regular physical health-checks to make sure that you, or the person you are caring for, has good overall health. The doctor or nurse may well do tests to look at the following:

  • Weight
  • Blood pressure
  • Blood sugar levels
  • Cholesterol

The doctor or nurse can also explain what the results mean and see if everything is as it should be.

If meeting some of these targets is proving a struggle, ask the doctor or nurse to recommend ways to help stay on track.
