Other Conditions

H Pylori (ulcer) Screen

This test provides evidence of infection with the helicobacter pylori bacteria. This bacteria is the cause of up to 85% of stomach and duodenal ulcers. Left untreated, ulcers can lead to recurrent abdominal pain, deep ulcerations, and internal bleeding. Certain groups are at high risk such as Hispanics and the elderly.
Note: Finger stick, with immediate results.

Hearing Screen

Available upon request. This test evaluates various frequencies for hearing loss. It also may serve as a screening tool to detect more serious conditions associated with hearing loss such as certain types of brain tumors.
Note: Headphones are placed on head, with different tones presented to each ear.

Computerized Fitness Analyses

This Analysis compares a person’s current height, weight, age, sex, and body fat percentage to NIH reference data as well as generating diet and activity suggestions aimed at improving fitness and reducing health risks.

Complete Blood Count w/differential (CBC)

Blood Study: The CBC measures the various cellular components of your blood including your white cells, red cells, and platelets. These are important to screen for anemia, infection, clotting disorders or even leukemia.

Vision Screen

This test screens for vision problems. It also can indicate if more serious underlying eye conditions are present that can threaten vision and permanent blindness.
Note: Vision is evaluated one eye at a time.

Influenza

Influenza, commonly called “the flu,” is an illness caused by viruses that infect the respiratory tract. Compared with most other viral respiratory infections, such as the common cold, influenza (flu) infection often causes a more severe illness with a mortality rate (death rate) of about 0.1% of people who are infected with the virus. Unusually severe worldwide outbreaks (pandemics) have occurred several times in the last 100 years since influenza virus was identified in 1933. By an examination of preserved tissue, the worst influenza pandemic occurred in 1918 when the virus caused between 40 to 100 million deaths with a mortality rate estimated to range from 2% to 20%.

Haemophilus influenzae is a bacterium that was incorrectly considered to cause the flu until the virus was demonstrated to be the correct cause in 1933. This bacterium can cause lung infections in infants and children, and it occasionally causes ear, eye, sinus, joint, and a few other infections, but not the flu.

Skin Damage Assessment

Facial skin is enclosed and evaluated in a unit called a Dermascan. Under the Dermascan’s long-wave, Type A Ultraviolet light (also known as “black light”), the underlying condition of the skin is illuminated in various fluorescent hues. By making blocked pores, as well as oily, dry, and permanently sun-damaged areas visible, participants receive a visual understanding of the upper and lower levels of their skin.
