2017 Health Screening Information

Health Risk Assessment Panel Includes: 

* Health Risk Assessment Panel is a blood draw. Please do not eat or drink anything except water for 12 hours prior to your lab work. Call 573-442-6599 with any questions.

Blood Chemistry Screening

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). In order to receive the most accurate results you should fast (DO NOT EAT ANYTHING OR DRINK LIQUIDS WITH SUGAR OR CREAM IN THEM) for 12 hours prior to attending a health fair. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER DURING YOUR 12-HOUR FAST and continue to take your regular medications. If you are diabetic, do not fast. 

Hemoglobin A1c

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.  

Blood Count Screening

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.

 Hepatitis C

The Hepatitis C virus attacks the liver, causing inflammation. Inflammation leads to the formation of scar tissue, which slowly progresses to liver disease. Over 3 MILLION Americans are chronically infected with HCV. Half of infected people aren’t aware they’re infected! Baby boomers (born 1946 –1964) account for two out of every three cases of chronic HCV infection in the United States. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that every Baby Boomer be screened once for Hepatitis C. For more information about Hepatitis C go to www.hepcalliance.org.

Vital Screening Includes: 

 Blood Pressure Screening

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. 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. 

 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.
