“We should be able to prevent the vast majority of premature heart disease in the world by addressing the 9 key risk factors”
At Preventicum we screen our clients for the 9 key risk factors and we combine these tests with many more to provide individuals with a tailored report on their current health.
- Early detection of disease: treatment is more effective and/or less expensive
- Identification of risk factors: goal is to modify the risk factor to minimise disease
‘Prevention begins by building good health and a healthy lifestyle from the beginning of an individual’s life. The best way of empowering people to take charge of their own health and well-being is to focus on the major risk factors that may affect their health.’ NHS White Paper ‘Our health, our care, our say’, January 2006.
