Health Screenings

HealthWest Community Pharmacy offers a number of health screening and check up services. We believe that regular check ups can help identify any health concerns early on. We use the results to create a tailored plan to get your health back on track.

BMI Checks

BMI, or body mass index, is an indicator of body fat. This can be used to identify any risk of developing obesity and other health issues associated with being overweight. Your results can give you a weight loss target and an indication of where you need to get to in order to achieve optimum health.

Blood Pressure Monitoring

High blood pressure has various health risks associated with it, including an increased chance of stroke and heart attack. Alternately, low blood pressure instead comes with the increased risk of fainting. Our pharmacies can provide regular blood pressure monitoring and offer advice on different ways you can reduce or control your blood pressure.

Cholesterol Tests

High cholesterol leads to fat build up in your arteries and blood vessels. These blockages can eventually cause strokes and heart attacks. Our cholesterol tests will determine how much cholesterol you have. From there we will create a plan on how you can reduce your cholesterol levels.

Vitamin D Tests

The majority of Irish people are lacking in Vitamin D. Vitamin D is essential to your overall health. Studies show that adequate levels of Vitamin D provide a huge benefit in terms of pregnancy outcomes, autism, cardiovascular issues and diabetes. A vitamin D test will identify if a regular vitamin supplement or even a multi-vitamin should be taken to increase your vitamin levels.

Glucose (Blood Sugar) Checks

Blood sugar testing can be used to screen for diabetes. An early diagnosis is vital for managing the disease. The results of the test can be used to help prevent diabetes from developing. At HealthWest we also provide regular glucose check ups and blood sugar monitoring for people with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
