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
  • Post-menopause
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Smoking

Fortunately, if you are diagnosed with metabolic syndrome, you can work to reverse it with the help of AdventHealth’s whole-health experts.
