Cholesterol, Blood Lipids, Metabolic Panel, Iron, Blood Pressure, and PSA Screening*
2015 Date TBA
Cholesterol and Lipid Profile:This test will provide information about total cholesterol, HDL, LDL and triglycerides. A 12-hour fast is required prior to the Blood Chemistry Panel-- nothing to eat or drink, except water. Click here for more information about these screenings.
Blood Pressure:If you have not had your blood pressure checked recently, please take a moment to update this health information. You can do it in less time than it takes to call a friend for lunch.
PSA Screening: The PSA test measures the levels of the Protein-Specific Antigen (PSA) in a man's blood. It is used as a screening tool for prostate cancer. This test can be completed with the same sample of blood drawn from the Blood Chemical Profile.
