Thanks bro.
You're welcome bro Big Grin Sam's club did not send the email alert in advance to me and I missed the free screening last month.

Last year screening results showed that My HDL is a bit low (<40 mg/dL). I had been doing work out and eating healthier for past several months. Also taking omega-3 fish oil. Looking forward to the new numbers soon!

Health tip to the SD community: This is also good to catch pre-diabetic condition. If your fasting numbers are 100-125, you need to be careful. From NIH: "Prediabetes is when blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough for a diagnosis of diabetes. Prediabetes means a person is at increased risk for developing type 2 diabetes, as well as for heart disease and stroke. Many people with prediabetes develop type 2 diabetes within 10 years. However, modest weight loss and moderate physical activity can help people with prediabetes delay or prevent type 2 diabetes."

For those who wonder about privacy on the screening; you don't need to give your correct name or anything. They did not verify last time I did this.

Thanks again. Health is very very important, I have tried my best to have it as the foremost important thing and especially today's world, forget about it, dealing with people and job, everything comes with the high price of stress. Hope to go to Sams and be the first to execute this amazing free offer. Is there any dos and donts before going, like should not have eaten a breakfast half hour before or something like that? Thanks.

I completely agree with you. Health is the most important wealth. It's great to see your motivation.

It is suggested that one should not eat or drink in the past eight hrs for accurate glucose reading (FBS). I recommend to go in the morning without eating breakfast. I know it is not that easy for many. But I think it is worth considering the potential benefit at zero cost. My wife and I plan to go early and sign up before the crowd lines up. By the way, drinking pure water should be fine.

For the most accurate results you want to not eat or drink anything except water for 8-12 hours before going to get any tests like this involving blood levels and the such. How you skip those hours is your choice but assuming you go in the morning you would eat no breakfast, no juice or anything, and at least 8 hours of no eating.

It cracks me up every time I read or hear 'Good Cholesterol'. There is only one cholesterol in your body and HDL and LDL are lipoproteins not cholesterol. The whole cholesterol nose sense shows people's ignorance when it comes to their health.

The irony is that Sam's club is doing this haha. Don't give health insurance to workers but offer this to people to bring them in?

Yes, the blood glucose test in included.

Not only for sugar level, but cholestrol level test also recommend fasting for accurate result.

Excuse me sir, but it is just a layman's terminology to educate the population in a simple way. Yes, chemically it is not the cholesterol molecule (which is high in egg yolk), but there is nothing wrong in calling HDL/LDL that way.
