What's your risk? This quick survey gives you a health check

In support of the Australian Governments' commitment to improving the health of Australians through preventive measures, Healthdirect Australia has launched the healthdirect Risk Checker for three key preventable diseases.

Developed in collaboration with The George Institute for Global Health and available across the government-funded healthdirect website, the free, user-friendly online tool helps users determine their level of risk for heart disease, kidney disease and diabetes.

After answering a series of lifestyle questions, users receive a personalised report that shows important lifestyle changes that will increase the likelihood of living a longer, healthier life, which may include a prompt to make an appointment with a GP.

Take a minute to complete the quick survey and get risk assessed - as well some practical tips on how to lower your risks.
