Total Cholesterol & Glucose Screening - $20

Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance found in the cells of our bodies. Our bodies need cholesterol but too much bad cholesterol can lead to heart disease. There are no symptoms for high cholesterol, therefore regular screenings are the key to early detection.
