A yearly wellness screen is one of the easiest and most beneficial things you can do to monitor your health! It takes only an hour and provides you with the framework you need to make the necessary adjustments to live a healthier life!
Most yearly physicals are flawed. They are designed to catch some lab markers out of reference range so that a cheap drug can be prescribed. They sometimes catch actual disease already formed but never address disease prevention. That's where this "yearly physical" is different.
The wellness screen includes a head to toe physical exam which includes:
Cranial nerve exam
Lymph node exam
Ears, nose and throat exam
It also includes the following lab work:
Complete Blood Count (CBC)
Gives us vital information about your red and white blood cells including shape, size, and quantity
Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP)
Provides information on your fasting blood glucose, kidney function, liver function, protein content, and mineral concentration
Cholesterol is a valuable lipid that makes up your cell membranes as well as functions as a precursor to your sex and adrenal hormones. It tells us little information about your risk of heart disease. A complete lipid panel with HDL, VLDL, LDL, and triglycerides in conjunction with cholesterol gives us a much better picture of your cardiovascular health.
A marker of your average blood glucose over the last three months. An excellent tool to assess your risk of developing diabetes or to monitor your diabetes treatment efforts.
Possibly the single most important biomarker of overall health. Used for:
Cellular health against cancer and respiratory infections
Prevents heart disease and stroke
Supports muscle strength
Prevents autoimmune disease
Prevents brain disease and cognitive decline
Treats and prevents mental health disease
And much more
