Quick, Convenient Health Screenings
Cardiac Age Health Risk Assessment
This screening is based on the Framingham Heart Study, a long-term study of cardiovascular disease risk factors, directed by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. We’ll calculate your 10-year heart risk percentage based on your:
- Body mass index
- Blood pressure
- Cholesterol and blood sugar levels
- Smoking history
A member of our heart care team will examine a drop of your blood (requires a tiny prick of your finger) to measure blood sugar and lipids. Please don’t eat or drink anything four hours before your screening.
