Heart Health Screening
Take the next step in your heart health journey
One in three adults will be diagnosed with heart disease this year and heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Even more startling, is that 80% of heart disease can be reduced by taking steps to prevent and control factors that put people at greater risk.
At Mercy Health, we want to partner with you to develop a lifelong plan for living a healthy life! We encourage you to register for our $20 Heart Risk Screening, which includes a lipid panel and blood sugar reading, offered at convenient locations.
Lipid panel includes:
- Total cholesterol
- LDL (low-density lipoprotein), “bad cholesterol”
- HDL (high-density lipoprotein), “good cholesterol”
- Triglycerides, another form of fat
Blood sugar reading:
- A blood sugar test is a procedure that measures the amount of sugar, or glucose, in your blood.
Understanding your heart and knowing your heart health risks are crucial. Congratulations on taking a first step to better heart health!
NOTE: This is a direct to consumer test and is pre-paid for at the time of registration. This is an out-of-pocket charge, so your insurance isn’t billed. As a result, you get test results directly instead of through your provider.
In preparation for your lab test, please do not eat or drink anything (except water or black coffee) during the eight hours prior to having your specimen collected. Please take your normal medication as directed by your physician.
