Letter to the Editor 9-27-13

Dear Editor,
 The Cloud County Health Center is offering laboratory screening tests again this year. We are excited to provide this service to the community and hope the community will take advantage of this opportunity to check on their health.
 Included in these are:
Complete Blood Count (CBC): white blood cell count, red blood cell count, hemoglobin, hematocrit, and platelet count. This can identify possible anemia, infections, and cancers such as leukemia.
Complete Metabolic Profile (CMP): This gives an overview of kidney function, dehydration, electrolyte balance, liver function, detection of high blood sugar or possible diabetes, and nutritional status to name a few.
Lipid Profile: cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL (bad cholesterol) and HDL (good cholesterol). These help to evaluate your risk for heart disease.
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH):  Evaluates thyroid function
Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA): This helps to evaluate for prostate cancer and other prostate diseases.
Hemoglobin A1c: Evaluates for diabetes and how well the blood sugar is being controlled over the last 3 months.
Vitamin D Level: Evaluates your Vitamin D level which plays a role in calcium balance and the maintenance of healthy bones.
 We look forward to seeing you October 12th at the Cloud County Health Center in Dining Rooms A&B (next to the cafeteria in the basement). We will start at 6:30 a.m. and continue till 10:00 a.m. Do not eat or drink for 10-12 hours prior to getting your lab work drawn. You may have water and your medications prior to this, but if you are diabetic do not take your diabetic medications until you know you will be able to eat.
                          Robyn Burwell APRN-BC
