We want to make getting a wellness screening easy on YOU! To ensure that we can properly assess you, we do ask for your cooperation in helping us get the best results possible!
FASTING: In order to get accurate labs, it is very important that you do not eat or drink 12 hours prior to your lab draw. Many of the lab tests we will be performing on you during this wellness event require fasting. Unfortunately if you are not properly fasting, your results may be skewed and not as accurate as they should be.
NO food or drink (no coffee, juice, milk etc). Refrain from all beverages or food until after your lab draw is completed. You CAN drink water and we do encourage you to take any medicines you may have prescribed with water.
CLOTHING: You are welcome to wear whatever you feel is comfortable. If possible, choosing a shirt that has an open neck or a loose fitting collar would be ideal for the carotid ultrasound.
Carotid Ultrasound: There is no prep for the carotid ultrasound. As mentioned above, wearing a loose fitting collar (no turtlenecks) would be helpful.
Aorta Ultrasound: In addition to the labs, getting an aorta ultrasound requires fasting. So your fasting status will be helpful in many areas of your wellness screening. You will not need to change your clothes for this exam. Rather, we wil ask you to lift up or open your shirt so we can acces your belly.
PAD testing:There is no prep for this particular screening test. We will ask you to remove your socks and shoes so we can obtain pulses and blood pressures at your ankles. During this test we will also place blood pressure cuffs on both of your upper arms.
