Oswego Health will hold a multi-blood analysis event from 6:30 to 9:30 a.m. Saturday, September 19th at the Central Square Medical Center, located at 3045 East Avenue in the village.
To make an appointment call 341-0011, lines are open 24-hours a day..
This full battery of tests can help prevent potential health problems. The cost of the analysis is $35. Typically these tests can cost more than $340.
In addition, this year there are two optional tests that cost $20 each. These tests include a Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) test, which is recommended to men older than age 50, and a vitamin D test.
The analysis screens individuals for various conditions such as anemia, diabetes, and others, as well as for coronary, kidney, and liver diseases. The most popular screening at the event is the portion of the analysis that assesses LDL and HDL cholesterol along with triglycerides.
A 12-hour fast is required for the blood analysis, but participants can drink water the morning of the testing.
Checks to cover the cost of the screenings should be made out to Oswego Health. Credit card payment will not be accepted.
Phlebotomists from Oswego Hospital will be on hand to conduct the blood draw. The results of the multi-organ blood analysis will be sent directly from the Oswego Hospital lab to the participant’s home and their physician in an easy to read format.
