Know Your Numbers For Your Health

Know Your Numbers For Your Health

Numbers are an important way to measure progress.

At the start of each year, there are several numbers at the forefronts of our minds like numbers on the scale, counting calories and tracking the number of steps we take. However, there are more numbers that are key to your overall health. By learning about the numbers that affect our overall health with our lipid panel and glucose levels, 2022 is no match for us!

How do I find out my numbers?

Blood work and a glucose test may be requested during your primary care check-up each year.

These numbers can vary based on factors like age, weight, fitness level and other health conditions present. It’s always important to consult with a health care provider to determine individual target ranges.

Knowing your numbers is crucial to maintaining your health. Make an appointment with your primary care provider today to know yours. To schedule with a North Oaks primary care provider, call (985) 236-0526.
