Metabolic Syndrome:
Revealing Your Risk

on July 23, 2017 health management and Tags: , , , , with 0 comments

 

Metabolic Syndrome is the name for a cluster of conditions that occur together and increase your risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

Many of these conditions are symptomless. But a simple biometric screening will tell whether they are present.

Biometric screening looks for five risk factors: high fasting blood sugar, high blood pressure, high triglyceride levels, low HDL cholesterol and abdominal obesity (measured by waist circumference).

Metabolic Syndrome means three of those five conditions are present, increasing the individual’s risk of developing a chronic condition by 700 percent.

Put another way, Metabolic Syndrome is the birthplace of disease.

Biometric testing can be done in your workplace, at off-site clinics or through primary care physicians. A blood pressure reading, waist measurement and a finger stick to draw blood, and you’re done!

Once testing identifies areas of risk within your organization, Wellvibe can get to work to reverse that risk. Wellvibe uses biometric results and other data to customize a strategy of activities designed to transform that risk.

Wellvibe is an easy-to-administer engagement tool that holds employees accountable along the road to risk reversal, every step of the way.
