Nearly everyone is trying to live a healthier life. We're eating more nutritious foods, increasing physical activity, visiting our healthcare providers regularly, and monitoring important health indicators.
King’s Daughters is pleased to support you in your efforts to achieve better health by offering two special screenings on Friday, Feb. 3 at King’s Daughters Medical Center Ohio, 2001 Scioto Trail, Portsmouth.
The Low-Cost Blood Profile includes a complete blood count; comprehensive metabolic panel; lipid profile (LDL, HDL, total cholesterol and triglycerides); and thyroid stimulating hormone levels. Total cost for the battery of tests is just $25. No appointment is needed, but fasting is required. Hours are 7 to 11 a.m. An optional A1C screening, which monitors blood sugar levels over time, is available for $5. Appointments are not required; participants must be fasting.
The Vascular Disease Screening consists of an ultrasound exam of the carotid arteries, which supply blood to the brain; an ultrasound of the abdominal aorta, which supplies blood to the lower half of the body; and an ankle-brachial index study, which looks for decreased blood flow to the legs and feet. Total cost for the vascular screening is $80. Appointments are required and are available beginning at 7 a.m. Please call 1-888-377-KDMC to schedule.
Cash, checks and credit cards are welcome. Insurance cannot be billed for the screenings. For more information about the tests, results reporting to check availability on other dates or locations, please visit our website at kdmcohio.com/screenings.
