no, not for stds or undivulged genetic secrets, more high levels of uric acid, cholesterol etc. i want to know optimums, how bad his readings are, exactly why he has to stop drinking and eating rubbish now. Does anyone know how I can find this out?

Also, can anyone recommend a decent health book for men in their 40s setting out exactly why they can´t still éat and drink as they did in their 20s, or some other way of getting the message across (seeing as looking in the mirror doesn´t seem to work).

If he had tests, then the person who ordered them should explain them, and there is usually a normal range on the results - when I had a bupa healthcheck it had a very detailed booklet with the drs letter.

The Haynes mens health book is really good
