Have your blood screened
This simple blood test can give you and your health care provider a wealth of information regarding your health including the diagnosis and possible treatment of many diseases. The test includes screenings for:
Cholesterol (blood lipids)
Triglyceride (blood fats)
High density lipoproteins (HDL)
Low density lipoproteins (LDL)
Glucose (blood sugar)
White blood count
Additional screenings will also be available.
We ask you fast, with the exception of water, between nine and 12 hours before the test. If you have questions about taking any prescription medications, please contact your primary care provider.
If you are a Sanford Health My Chart user, your test results will be available online later that same day. Signing up for My Chart is easy and can be done at mysanfordchart.org. If you wish to receive a printed copy, you can expect it in the mail within seven to 10 days.
