Because overall wellness is our primary focus at Modern Women’s Health, we stress the importance of screenings for metabolic conditions and heart disease.
Your Metabolic Disease Screening
Metabolic disease refers to a collection of risk factors that include abdominal fat and high blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels. These risk factors may cause a higher risk of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke, but many people don’t know they have it.
This is why we offer a screening to assess your blood pressure, waistline, HDL cholesterol level, triglyceride level, and fasting blood sugar. When three (or more) of these five are abnormal, that means you have metabolic disease.
If your screening shows that you do have metabolic disease, we will go over what steps you should take. These steps usually involve making dietary and lifestyle changes, just as with heart disease.
