Lake Regional’s Cardiovascular Screening provides a convenient, affordable way to look for several early warning signs of heart disease. Participants will receive free screenings for pulmonary function, body mass index, body fat analysis, blood pressure and peripheral artery disease. Also available will be $5 lipid (cholesterol) profiles, $5 fasting blood sugar tests and $17 Pocket EKGs.
Fasting is necessary 12 to 14 hours in advance of lipid and blood sugar tests. Water and prescribed medications may be consumed during the fast.
