We at the Nihonbashi Muromachi Mitsui Tower Midtown Clinic provide health guidance to people over the age of 40, who are considered eligible based on their health checkup results. A public health nurse will devise health initiatives tailored to you and offer advice that can easily be put into practice in your day-to-day life.

What is specific health guidance?
Specific health guidance is a follow-up service offered after a medical checkup to persons between the ages of 40 and 75 diagnosed with metabolic syndrome (*) or at risk of developing the disease. The service targets individuals whose risk for the onset of the disease is believed to be highly preventable by improving lifestyle choices. Depending on the level of risk, the specific health guidance will provide "motivational support" and "active support."
*What is metabolic syndrome?
A condition in which the accumulation of visceral fat leads to the onset of dyslipidemia, hyperglycemia, and hypertension. It often results from a lack of exercise or overeating. Improvements in lifestyle habits can reduce the risk of future severe illnesses.
