Get a Free Metabolic Syndrome Screening
If you want to be proactive about preventing a serious health condition (like diabetes, heart disease and stroke), consider scheduling a metabolic syndrome screening at one of our convenient AdventHealth Express Care at Walgreens locations.
Metabolic syndrome is actually a group of risk factors that increase your odds of developing one or more of these three serious conditions. If you fit any of the following criteria, a metabolic syndrome screening may be right for you:
- Age 18+
- African-American or Mexican-American ethnicity
- Body mass index (BMI) greater than 25
- Gestational diabetes (diabetes during pregnancy)
- Have a family member with type 2 diabetes
- High-fat diet
- High levels of stress
- History of heavy alcohol drinking
- Personal or family history of diabetes
- Sedentary lifestyle
Fortunately, if you are diagnosed with metabolic syndrome, you can work to reverse it with the help of AdventHealth’s whole-health experts.
