Health fairs in October
Alaska Health Fairs, Inc. continues its fall series of health fair around the state this month, featuring free health screenings and education, low cost blood tests and more. These tests can help you learn about your health and detect potential problems early, when treatment or changes in personal habits can be most effective. The test results give you and your health care provider important information about your physical condition and vital organ functions.
A complete and comprehensive chemistry/hematology test is available for only $45 and panels 27 different tests for conditions ranging from diabetes, kidney and liver function, to anemia and tissue health, thyroid, prostate, bone metabolism and much more. (You should fast for 12 hours prior to this test.) There are also tests to check thyroid function, prostate disease, A1C blood glucose, Vitamin D level and a blood type test. Test results are mailed to you in approximately two weeks.
