Cholesterol and Blood Pressure Screening
Knowing your blood pressure and cholesterol numbers is an important first step in maintaining good heart health. Understanding what you can do and working to reduce risks associated with high blood pressure and high cholesterol is essential to your overall health and well-being.
Take Charge! “mini-screenings” are offered at St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center monthly. The screening provides individuals with the opportunity to learn more about their health. Total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol (good), body mass index (BMI), blood pressure, review of medical history, and health education session will be measured along with a review of individual risk factors. Recommendations are offered and if necessary, a referral to a physician will also be made.
