In my wardrobe, I’ve got a lovely navy blazer that will never look out of date.The ECG and scans, I was relieved to read, had revealed nothing untoward, although my “good” (HDL) cholesterol was classified as low, while my “bad” (LDL) cholesterol was high (doctors these days are interested in the ratio between the two, rather than just total cholesterol).It was when I turned to the “risk analysis” page, based on the lifestyle questionnaire, that I felt baffled.The company vowed it would put my mind at rest – or, should a problem be detected, something could be done before it was too late.So it was that one rainy Monday morning I found myself in a draughty church hall, with a few screens thrown up for privacy – a set-up that brought to mind the NHS rather than a swanky private service.
