With this month being March Madness and the ultimate excitement of the Final Four, we’ve got a Final Four challenge for you! Get your game on and come to a 9Health Fair this spring to take on the challenge of owning your health. Get in on the action with these four important screenings – it’s a great start to keeping your numbers scoring high and taking ownership in your health.
Your body is like a team working together. When all the parts are operating together, that means your body functions properly. Check out our top four important screenings:
- The most popular screening at each fair is the Blood Chemistry panelfor just $35. It gives you 28 different values to help you know and understand your liver, kidneys, bones, thyroid and more. Blood Chemistry will provide you with your HDL (good) and LDL (bad) cholesterol, triglycerides and glucose values. These are essential numbers to know.
- The next important and popular screening is Hemoglobin A1c. It takes a look for diabetes by measuring your average blood sugar control for the past two to three months. For people with diabetes, it indicates how well your diabetes treatment plan is working.
- Checking your blood pressureis vital to keeping an eye on your overall health. Blood pressure is the force in the arteries when the heart beats and when the heart is at rest. It can fluctuate with exercise, injury, illness and emotional reactions. You want to try not to have your blood pressure exceed 119/79.
- The Body Mass Index (BMI) screening provides you with your BMI, using your height, weight and waist measurement to identify your risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes. BMI is considered reliable for assessing obesity.
