Preventative Health Screenings

There are four numbers that your primary care physician generally checks: blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, and BMI/weight. Why? These numbers offer a glimpse into your current health and tell a crucial story about your overall well-being.

These numbers determine your risk for various diseases and conditions, including diabetes, stroke, and cardiovascular ailments. It's important to monitor these numbers to maintain a healthy lifestyle and prevent future diseases.
