Ian Shiel’s Randox Health Journey!

In 2012 I retired as a commercial pilot after 40 years of flying.  During that period, I had at least one full medical check-up per year. However, in spite of being functional, the air crew medical system did not go into any depth.

Since retirement I have had no recourse to a meaningful health M.O.T.and this was an area of concern to me.

I had reached a point in life where I knew that there were probably areas of my health that I could improve upon, but I had no way of addressing these issues.  Randox proved to be my perfect solution.

I attended my health screening in Northern Ireland; it comprised of a simple blood test, a comprehensive health assessment and an interview with a Randox doctor.  The experience was uncomplicated, pleasant and professional and took approximately one hour.

I had the results from my Randox around ten days later, along with a de-brief from the same doctor.  My results highlighted three main areas of concern; raised blood pressure, high BMI (body mass index) and unhealthy body fat distribution.  I was not unduly surprised by these results, but the detailed screening supplied by Randox gave me a graphic illustration of the need to change.

Between us, we agreed areas to be worked on, namely a change in general lifestyle; a healthier diet, more exercise and a reduction in alcohol consumption.  A follow up meeting was planned for about a year later.

The impetus I was given by Randox and the detailed information supplied by the health screening process, resulted in me adopting real lifestyle changes.  To date I have lost over three stone, my blood pressure has been reduced, my BMI is lower than it has ever been and I feel great!

Most of us have an idea of what we should do to improve our health. I believe however, that Randox gives you clear evidence of why, helps you with the how and supports you fully on your journey to becoming a healthier you!
