Why you should start the year with a Blood Chemistry Screening
Seven months after their father died from a heart attack Mickie came to a 9Health Fair.
“My blood screening results indicated that my cholesterol levels were high,” says Mickie. “I went to the doctor who referred me to a cardiologist.” There, doctors found a partial blockage in an artery. “Since then, I have made important life changes,” says Mickie, who now regularly attends 9Health Fair every year.
“I believe 9Health Fair helped save my life and prevented me from suffering a heart attack like my father,” says Mickie.
What Our Blood Chemistry Screening Tests
There is a special benefit when you get a blood chemistry screening through 9Health:365 verses at your doctor’s office. While your doctor might test for a few different things, our test measures 28 different levels in your blood. It’s a great way to get a solid snapshot of your overall health. It measures all your major systems- including heart, kidneys, and liver health.
Plus, you don’t have to deal with copays, surprise fees, or confusing results!
Why You Should Consider Getting It Every Year
As Mickie pointed out, the blood chemistry screening prevented a potential heart attack.
A lot can change in a year, which is why getting this quality test is an important one to consider getting each year. Sometimes, a subtle change can alert your doctor to an issue before you have symptoms. Early detection is your best chance to head off major health issues. Even if you’re young, this test is good for knowing your baseline levels.
Another factor is family history. For example, do any of your family members have heart disease? Diabetes? Or any other hereditary health issue? If so, you want to be on top of your health and track your results.
Many of us start the New Year off with health-related resolutions. But no matter yours, getting a Blood Chemistry Screening is a great way to start the year and help motivate you to better health or maintain the good health practices you already have.
