Description

Stroke and heart disease are both related to a process called atherosclerosis. This is a condition that develops when a substance called plaque builds up in the walls of the arteries. This buildup narrows the arteries, making it harder for blood to flow through. If a blood clot forms, it can stop the blood flow and can cause a heart attack or stroke. According to the Michigan Department of Community Health, heart disease is the number one cause of death in Michigan and stroke is not far behind ranking fourth.

This low-cost preventative screening is designed to help identify your risk for stroke and heart disease so that you can take measures now to help lower your controllable risk factors.

The screening takes less than an hour and includes:

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG – Also known as an EKG) to measure heart rhythm
  • Total lipid panel (HDL, LDL, total cholesterol and triglycerides)
  • Blood glucose screening to measure blood sugar levels
  • Blood pressure and vital signs check
  • Risk assessment questionnaire

Participants must fast for 12 hours.
