The Importance Of A Biometric Screening
The sensitive medical data and results that will be collected as a result of your Biometric screening, will be kept safe and in secure hands when performed at Midwest Express Clinic urgent care.
The Biometric Health Screening is used to measure factors of your health such as:
- Body Fat Percent
• BMI or Body Mass Index
• Blood Pressure
• Heart Rate
• Glucose Levels
• Prostate-specific antigen – upon request
• And more!
These screenings are typically referred by your doctor or primary care physician and are recommended every 5 years in order to keep track of lifetime results. After the screening is complete, our medical providers will send you home with recommendations and health care tips in order to obtain the highest level of health and well-being.
Subject to the results of your Biometric assessment, it may be revealed that your health is at risk for diseases such as Cardiovascular Disease and Diabetes.
What Is The Difference Between A Biometric Screening & Wellness Exams?
An Annual Wellness Exam includes gathering your medical history, current health status by examining heart, lungs, throat, etc., and making sure you are up to date on all important immunizations. A Biometric Screening, however, focuses directly on measuring an individual’s risk factors for stress, blood pressure, glucose levels and others as mentioned within the list above.
