As with so many other things in life, improved awareness can make a positive change to your health.
Here’s a nice study where US barber shops installed blood pressure check machines and it was found that for men with hypertension, their conditions improved if they chose to get checked after their haircut.
Sounds trivial – but there’s an expense in the machinery which is paid back in the health outcome.
LHD hopes to harness the same effect by encouraging tracking and management of personal lifestyle and health. We are working particularly on community care situations at present…. hopefully we can give you news of a trial using community nurses soon.
