The Carey Kiwanis Club is hosting its Preventive Health Screenings on Saturday, May 5 from 7 – 9 a.m. at Grace United Methodist Church.
The preventive health screenings include an automated CBC, full lipid profile, basic metabolic panel and AST/ALT for $35. The screening checks hemoglobin, white cell count, total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides and ratio, glucose (blood sugar), electrolytes, kidney function and liver enzymes. For the most accurate results, participants will want to fast for 12 hours prior to the test. Water is permitted during the fast, and encouraged to prevent dehydration.
Other blood tests are also available. The test for TSH and Free T4 at $25 checks thyroid function. The A1C test for $20 measures the average blood glucose for the past 2-3 months. The PSA for $15 measures prostate-specific antigen. These optional tests require no fasting.
The results for the tests will be sent to participants.
The fees for the screenings are payable by cash, check or credit card.
