Wellness ScreeningsTo better serve your overall needs, our pharmacists provide health screenings. Health screenings help to identify health risks and problems that can ultimately lead to chronic disease states. Our healthcare providers will recommend healthcare interventions to address abnormal health screening results and thus assist in the prevention or delay the onset of certain chronic illness. These services are provided by a specialty-trained pharmacist and are carefully designed to meet your needs.
What is a Biometric Screening?
Knowing your risk of disease is the first step in taking action to stay healthy.
What to expect?
When you come in for a biometric screening, your provider will measure your height, weight and blood pressure. They will also test your blood glucose, and lipids (cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL, LDL) using a finger prick to obtain a blood sample. Before leaving you will have your results along with risk reduction counseling to help you achieve your optimum health.
Cholesterol screening measures the amount of cholesterol, triglycerides, high density lipoprotein (HDL) and low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels in the blood. Cholesterol screenings can detect conditions such as high cholesterol or high triglycerides.
Hemoglobin A1C measures your average blood glucose (sugar) over the past 90 days. An elevated hemoglobin A1C could indicate the presence of diabetes.
**Hemoglobin A1C Screenings are available at select pharmacies only.
A Tuberculosis (TB) or PPD skin test is used to detect latent, also known as “silent,” TB infection. A PPD skin test is often used for persons in high exposure occupations, such as healthcare, to catch any infections before they become severe or communicable to others. The medication is administered into the skin, typically on the lower forearm, and reviewed 48 to 72 hours after injection to assess for any localized reaction.
**TB Tests are available at select pharmacies only.
