Who Should Have a Screening?

  • In regards to a heart score screening, all adults over age 20 should also have a cholesterol screening
  • Children and adolescents of high-risk families should also have cholesterol screenings (High-risk families are those in which a parent or sibling has had a heart attack before age 55)
  • Anyone with a cholesterol level over 200 mg/dL should have the results confirmed by taking the screening again within two months
  • Anyone whose cholesterol level is borderline high (200-239 mg/dL) should follow-up with another screening annually

Four Reasons to Choose Heart Score:

  • It is not a mass screening. You will have a one-on-one, private consultation with a health care professional regarding your risk factors.
  • In addition to total cholesterol, it checks HDL, LDL, triglycerides, blood sugar and more.
  • It provides a body-fat analysis in addition to measuring your height and weight.
  • To pinpoint your risk factors, it uses an extensive personal lifestyle analysis.

Once your tests have been completed, you will receive a comprehensive report that will help you understand how to lower your risk of heart disease.

The Heart Score Includes:

  • Personal lifestyle analysis
  • Cholesterol test (HDL and triglycerides)
  • Blood sugar test
  • EKG test
  • Blood pressure assessment
  • Body-fat analysis
