Information on the measurements taken at my screening and collection methods.
Regardless of the screening method you're doing, all of the following measurements will be taken:
- Blood Pressure
- Waist Measurement
In addition to the body measurements, you'll participate in either a fingerstick or a venipuncture blood draw. Details on each of these are below.
If you're participating in a fingerstick screening, the examiner will use a tool to prick the end of your finger and collect a few drops of blood. Your blood will immediately be tested and results shared with you.
If you're participating in a venipuncture screening, the examiner will use a needle to take two samples from the inside of your elbow. Your blood will be tested in the lab and results available 10 - 15 days after your screening. Learn more about venipuncture screenings here and get tips on how to prepare for your screening.
