Employees Received Their Diabetes Screening Results in a Convenient, Lunch-Hour Presentation
Can you imagine anything more convenient and stress-free than staying on top of your health and being tested for diabetes while at work?
Well, we’re proud to offer that to companies in Austin and the surrounding area!
A couple of weeks ago we hosted a free diabetes screening to employees at a major Austin-area tech company.
Prior to the diabetes blood screening, PreDiabetes Centers Medical Director Alan Hopkins, MD, gave a presentation for employees—discussing the risk factors and complications of diabetes—and encouraged them to sign up for free diabetes screening.
A week later we returned and screened more than 70 employees!
Seven days after that, we visited the company once again to give employees their test results in a group consultation.
As employees viewed their private results in the folder presented to them, Dr. Hopkins explained what measures of each biomarker mean for a person’s health and risk for diabetes. Employees had the opportunity to talk one-on-one with our health coach/RNs as well as Dr. Hopkins.
Every employee left the presentation with an in-depth understanding of their metabolic health and personal risk for diabetes. Armed with knowledge of their health, many took positive health action and signed up for integrated, concierge prediabetes treatment!
The PreDiabetes Centers diabetes blood screening looks at several biomarkers associated with prediabetes and diabetes, including fasting blood glucose, hemoglobin A1c, insulin, C-reactive protein, thyroid hormones, testosterone, lipids, HOMA-IR, and vitamin B12. Screening for these biomarkers individually could cost as much as $800, but PreDiabetes Centers provides this testing at no cost whatsoever to the employer or employee.
