Biometric testing identifies health problems

We offer mobile Biometric blood scans a foundation in our HIT health and wellness packages.  According to the CDC, a biometric health screening is defined as “the measurement of physical characteristics such as height, weight, body mass index, blood pressure, blood cholesterol, blood glucose, and aerobic fitness tests that can be taken at the work site and used as part of a workplace health assessment to benchmark and evaluate changes in employee health status over time.” Research shows that biometric health screenings can reduce health plan costs by identifying risk factors and at-risk employees that need medical attention. Scans results help individuals feel motivated to make healthy changes in their diet and fitness program. The HIT team designs wellness programs to motivate employees, targeting results to meet goals.

Measure Blood Glucose

Blood sugar testing or self-monitoring blood glucose provides useful information for diabetes management. It can help you:

  • Judge how well you’re reaching overall treatment goals
  • Understand how diet and exercise affect blood sugar levels
  • Understand how other factors, such as illness or stress, affect blood sugar levels
  • Monitor the effect of diabetes medications on blood sugar levels
  • Identify blood sugar levels that are high or low

Measure total cholesterol – LDL, HDL, Triglycerdides

Biometric testing provides a complete cholesterol measurement of four types of lipids, or fats, in your blood:

  • Total cholesterol: This is the total amount of cholesterol in your blood
  •  Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol: This is referred to as “bad” cholesterol
  • Too much of it raises your risk of heart attack, stroke, and atherosclerosis
  • High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol: This is referred to as “good” cholesterol because it helps remove LDL cholesterol from your blood
  • Triglycerides: When you eat, your body converts the calories it doesn’t need into 
triglycerides, which are stored in your fat cells. People who are overweight, diabetic, eat too many sweets, or drink too much alcohol can have high triglyceride levels
