2017-04-29

  • Blood Chemistry $35.00
    This screening provides baseline information on cholesterol, blood glucose, liver, kidneys, thyroid, and more. These screenings can help you and your doctor monitor your health and prevent health issues from becoming emergencies. Information from this screening can also be used to complete your employers’ Health Risk Assessments (HRA). Based on the most current research, fasting is optional for the blood chemistry screening. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER and continue to take your regular medications. Persons with diabetes, should not fast.
  • Blood Count Screening $25.00
    This screening gives you a general picture of your overall health by checking your white blood cells, hematocrit, hemoglobin levels, and blood-clotting abilities. Your body’s ability to fight infection, anemia, liver disease and certain cancers can be discovered with this screening.
  • Blood Pressure Screening
    This screening gives you your blood pressure reading. Blood pressure is the force in the arteries when the heart beats (systolic pressure) and when the heart is at rest (diastolic pressure). Blood pressure can fluctuate with exercise, injury, illness, and emotional reactions. Health care professionals check the participant's blood pressure. If the participant's blood pressure falls outside normal ranges, further evaluation by a healthcare provider is encouraged. Your blood pressure should not exceed 119/79. Pulse Screening is primarily measured on the participant's wrist. The pulse corresponds to each beat of the heart. The normal number of pulse beats per minute in the average adult varies from 60 to 80, with fluctuations occurring with exercise, injury, illness and emotional reactions.
  • Body Fat Skinfold Screening
    Find out your body fat levels with this screening by having your skin, muscle and fat thickness measured. Maintaining good body fat and muscle levels increases your overall strength and metabolism and reduces your risk of injury.
  • Breast Screening
    This screening provides a thorough examination of the breast, chest and armpit performed by a healthcare professional to identify any changes in shape or size of the breast or the presence of skin dimpling. The health professional also teaches you the proper technique for a systematic breast self-exam. THIS IS NOT A MAMMOGRAM.
  • First Aid
    Available in case medical assistance is needed.
  • Height/Weight/Body Mass Index (BMI) Screening
    This screening provides you with your Body Mass Index (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. It does not take into account a person's fat-to-muscle ratio (muscle takes up space but weighs more than fat). Therefore, it is not a reliable measure for athletes or highly physically active participants.
  • Hemoglobin A1c Screening $35.00
    A1C is a blood screening that measures your average blood sugar control for the past 2 to 3 months. The results give you a good idea of whether or not you are at risk for diabetes. For people with diabetes it indicates how well your diabetes treatment plan is working.
  • Oral Health Screening
    This screening identifies clinical signs of tooth and gum disease as well as oral abnormalities, sores, and lesions. Education regarding the importance of oral health to promote overall health, and risk factors for oral diseases are also provided.
  • Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) (Persons with a Prostate) $35.00
    The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) has recently recommended against routine screening of persons with a prostate with the PSA test. Please speak to your healthcare provider if you have questions. PSA is a blood screening that measures a protein that is only produced by the prostate gland. Elevations of PSA may occur in persons with non-cancerous prostate diseases or prostate cancer. A normal PSA level does not entirely exclude the possibility of prostate cancer. A traditional manual screening, performed by a health care provider is strongly encouraged in conjunction with PSA screening.
  • Skin Screening
    This screening provides a check for skin cancer and other skin problems. The screener may look at your scalp, face, neck, arms, hands, upper chest, back and legs.
  • Testosterone $45.00
    Testosterone is an androgen, or a sex hormone, produced by both males and females. In males it is produced primarily by the testes, in females, the ovaries account for half of the testosterone in the body. Women have a much smaller amount of testosterone in their bodies compared to men, but testosterone plays an important role throughout the body in both men and women. It affects the brain, muscle mass, fat distribution, the vascular system, energy levels, genital tissues, and sexual functioning. Symptoms of low testosterone in males include, decreased body hair, decreased muscle mass, low sex drive and erectile dysfunction. In women, symptoms of too much testosterone can be irregular or absent menstrual periods, infertility, development of facial and body hair and a deepening of the voice. Any abnormal value should be discussed with your health care provider to determine the underlying cause of the abnormal value.
  • Vision & Eye Health Screening
    This screening checks how well you see at near and far distances by reading letters on a basic eye chart. If you already wear glasses or contacts you should wear them during this screening. A prescription for eyeglasses and or contacts is not included.
  • Vitamin B12 - $25.00
    Vitamin B12, has a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and the formation of red blood cells. It is one of eight B vitamins. Lower levels of Vitamin B12 can potentially cause severe and irreversible damage, especially to the brain and nervous system. At levels only slightly lower than normal, a range of symptoms such as fatigue, depression, and poor memory may be experienced. Pernicious anemia is also caused by low Vitamin B12 .Taking Vitamin B12 usually corrects symptoms that are caused by a low level.
  • Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy Screening $50.00
    This screening is used to provide you with a baseline level of Vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency is now recognized as a worldwide problem. Your body requires Vitamin D to absorb calcium and plays an important role in protecting your bone health. Many studies also suggest an association between low Vitamin D levels and an increased risk of certain types of cancers, nerve disease, immune disease and heart disease. Some Vitamin D is produced in your skin when unprotected skin is exposed to sunlight. Otherwise, you can obtain Vitamin D in foods or take Vitamin D in supplement form. Studies have found that many adults have low Vitamin D levels. This screening requires only one blood draw. Results will be included on the same report with your other blood draw results. If you already take Vitamin D you should have a blood level drawn to make sure you are taking enough Vitamin D.
