Metabolic Syndrome Health Check-up Starting from April 2008


n Recently, the control of the Labor Standards Inspection Office is strengthened, and the responsibility of companies and managers are imposed on taking care about their employees’ health problems.



n Employees from 40 to 74 years of age, who are covered by the Japanese Health Insurance Society, are required to receive a further “Metabolic Syndrome” examination on top of the regular annual health check-up. (Please check your health insurance society.)



n If you are identified as having “Metabolic Syndrome” or have a high chance of developing “Metabolic Syndrome”, you will be required to receive special medical guidance.
