Adults should have their blood pressure measured at least once a year. As high blood pressure doesn’t cause specific discomfort, it can often go unnoticed. However, it can have serious consequences including heart attacks, angina pectoris, a weak heart (cardiac insufficiency), circulatory problems in the legs or damage to the kidneys.
We can help you to control your blood pressure. This measurement is an important yardstick to measure your general health. We record your personal results on your blood pressure card. That means you can keep your blood pressure results at hand at all times.

Various different factors such as family history, insufficient exercise and obesity influence your blood sugar levels. High blood sugar manifests itself with symptoms such as persistent fatigue and, when the levels are very high, thirst. An early detection of diabetes mellitus protects you against any other health risks.
With a blood sugar reading in our pharmacy, you can find out whether you are at risk of developing diabetes. Just one droplet of blood is enough to measure your blood sugar levels.

A colorectal cancer screening can be carried out easily with a stool test. We can offer you an initial assessment without you needing to make an appointment. With detailed advice and information from the pharmacist as well as a risk check, we can determine which particular examination is the best option for you. Depending on your risks or symptoms, we may refer you to a doctor. If not, the pharmacist can arrange the stool test with you directly.
You can provide your stool sample at home and send it to our laboratory. You will receive a post-paid envelope with the test so that you can send it directly to our laboratory. The stool sample will be evaluated in the laboratory. We will then receive the test result. We will discuss it with you and inform you of any further steps that may need to be taken. If the results of the stool sample are positive, i.e. if blood was found in the stool, we will refer you to a doctor to discuss the next steps.
