Will I see the results of my blood tests?

With your permission, we can send you the results from your blood tests. These results will be: total and HDL cholesterol and glycated haemoglobin tests. If you wish, we can also send these results to your GP, along with your blood pressure results. We will need your consent to do this.

If you consent to us extracting DNA from your blood sample, we will not be able to provide routine feedback of the results of genetic testing. Tests done on your DNA are not the same as clinical genetic tests and cannot be used for diagnosis. If, however, throughout the course of the research we find something that we think could indicate a preventable medical issue, we would attempt to contact you and advise you to consult with a medical professional.
