Hi
If your BMI is >35 or waist measurement >/= 88cm in females or >/=102cm in males then you will need extra fasting blood tests.
The forms are as below and are handy to have a look at so you get an idea of what it involves:
Medical forms

Hopefully someone can help with your other questions. It seems that you will get a referral to a medical assessor if there is anything they are worried about.

As the lovely Persephone says read through the medical forms so you know what is involved.

OH's BP should not be a problem as long as it is controlled, e.g. tablets and can be shown to have dropped to normal levels on medication. It would be adviseable to get a letter covering this matter from your own GP and produce it to the panel doctor doing the medical. In the meantime I would advise he go back to own GP and get them to check it is moving in the right direction and in doing so, will show committment on the part of OH to care for his health.
