The Wellness Screening is done by MercyOne Occupational Health and includes a Blood Draw (Venous or finger poke), a Body Mass Index (BMI), Waist Measurement and a Blood Pressure reading. The finger poke consists of an instant cholesterol (total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, and triglycerides) and glucose test using a CardioChek machine.
Note: Venous Blood Draw includes total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, Triglycerides, glucose. The venous blood draw will be sent to the lab, this is an actual medical test and is reviewed by Dr. Cassens. These results can be used to help identify health problems such as diabetes and heart disease.
If your fasting glucose result is 126 or greater, you will be offered a Hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C) Screening
(An HbA1C lab test reflects the average amount of sugar in the blood over the past 3 months. It shows how well blood glucose (blood sugar) is controlled. The normal level is less than 6%. Most people with diabetes should have an HbA1C of less than 7%.)
