What are the tests for?


Body Mass Index

These are your basic stats, including height, weight, and waist circumference. Your measurements are used to establish your body mass index (BMI), which is a useful indicator of whether your weight falls into the recommended range. A BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 is considered healthy (with a handful of exceptions related to background and age). A BMI of 25 or above is defined as overweight, while a result lower than 18.5 is considered to be underweight. 

Blood Pressure

Your blood pressure is represented by two numbers - the systolic blood pressure (the heart's cycle of contraction) and the diastolic blood pressure (the heart's cycle of relaxation) expressed as an equation of X/Y. According to the Heart Foundation, an ideal blood pressure reading is one that's lower than 120/80. Readings that are over 120/80 but lower than 140/90 are considered to be in the normal to high range, while anything greater than 140/90 indicates high blood pressure (hypertension).

It's essential to have your blood pressure tested on a regular basis as hypertension is asymptomatic and therefore hard to diagnose without monitoring. If left untreated, hypertension can cause damage to your arteries - increasing your risk of kidney failure, stroke, and heart attack.

Blood Glucose

Blood glucose levels are used to determine whether the sugar levels in your blood are within a healthy range. Hyperglycaemia occurs when blood glucose levels are too high, and is often indicative of type one or type two diabetes (although it can also be a symptom of other health issues). Hypoglycaemia is defined by low levels of blood sugar and those who have diabetes are particularly at risk if their glucose levels dip too low.

Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a naturally occurring fat that's produced by our bodies. It's vital to many essential functions, including the production of hormones and vitamin D.

However, cholesterol can also be ingested through the foods that we eat (especially those containing high levels of saturated fat). When levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (often called 'bad cholesterol') get too high, it can create blockages in arteries - increasing risk of heart disease and stroke. The NZ government's guidelines for cholesterol define a healthy range as Total Cholesterol of <4.0 mmol/L, provided that there are no other risk factors present (including hypertension and smoking).

Please note that healthy range thresholds (clinically-determined ranges, used to determine if your results qualify for AIA Vitality points) are intended to be used for adults aged 18+ years. Any AIA Vitality member aged under 18 years old is still able to complete an AIA Vitality Health Check and earn points for both attendance and healthy range results - however, any member aged under 18 years is advised to contact their health professional for the clinically-determined healthy range results for their age.
