Health Screenings Q & A

What are health screenings?

Health screenings are a necessary part of preventive health care. These routine screenings are appointments you schedule even when you’re feeling fine. Sleep Cycle Center team relies on health screenings to confirm or rule out potential health problems that can affect your long-term wellness.

Since many chronic diseases don’t show symptoms until the condition worsens, or symptoms are more mild and overlooked, screenings are essential to identify underlying health problems you don’t know you have. Early identification of conditions like high blood pressure (hypertension) and high cholesterol allows you to get treatment before the condition gets worse.

The team also uses screenings to ensure that your body is functioning at peak efficiency and that you’re getting the nutrition you need to stay healthy.

How often do I need health screenings?

You should schedule health screenings annually if you’re otherwise healthy. You’ll need more frequent health screenings if you have existing health conditions, are obese, or have a family history or other risk factors for conditions including:

  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure

Sleep Cycle Center team can determine how often you need health screenings based on your individual needs.

What can I expect during health screenings?

During your routine health screening, Sleep Cycle Center team spends time getting to know your personal and family medical histories. They also discuss concerns you have about your health, nutrition, and sleep quality.

As part of a physical exam, the team notes important details about your health, including your:

  • Weight
  • Height
  • Heart rate
  • Blood pressure
  • Body temperature

The doctors might also request blood work to check your overall health and identify problems like high cholesterol. You might also need additional health screenings based on your risk factors for specific diseases.

You can also expect your doctor to recommend lifestyle and dietary changes to improve your health even if you don’t have existing health challenges. They provide on-site nutrition counseling and weight loss services to help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

You can receive your health screening results during in-office visits or by using the online telehealth platform. Call Sleep Cycle Center office nearest to you today or go online to schedule health screenings.
