Total Cholesterol Levels -
High blood cholesterol is one of the major controllable risk factors for coronary heart disease, heart attack and stroke according to the American Heart Association (AHA). Simple blood tests can raise awareness of high blood cholesterol as a risk factor for coronary heart disease, the first step toward modifying lifestyle to reduce risk.

This test is administered through a quick, painless finger prick and takes about five minutes to process. Fasting is not required for accurate results.

Glucose Levels -
Blood glucose testing is used to screen individuals for diabetes risk. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) reports that 25.8 million individuals in the United States 96 8.3% of the population 96 have diabetes, and seven million of those individuals are undiagnosed. The blood sample obtained from the finger prick administered for the total cholesterol levels' health test will also be used to determine glucose levels.

Blood Pressure -
High blood pressure is one of the most common chronic conditions in adults according to the AHA. Uncontrolled high blood pressure is often called "the silent killer" because it has few or no symptoms, so you may not be aware that high blood pressure is damaging your arteries, heart and other organs. The only way to tell if you have high blood pressure is to have your blood pressure checked. The test is done easily, quickly and painlessly using a cuff around the upper arm to measure the force of blood as it travels through the artery
