All Genesis employees and their spouses receive a FREE screening to determine their risk for Metabolic Syndrome. The five risk factors center on blood pressure, fasting blood glucose, triglycerides, HDL cholesterol, and waist circumference. The screening will also test for tobacco use.
Why are these indicators important? Anyone with three or more of these risk factors has an elevated risk for heart disease, stroke, diabetes and other life-threatening conditions.
