The Dr. Oz Show encourages you to Know Your 5. To make this easier, The Doctor Oz Show has launched a special initiative to get America tested. Life Line Screening is the chosen screening provider.
Go to www.lifelinescreening.com to get your discounted Know Your 5 screening. You can also call 1-888-576-5433.
Your discounted Know Your 5 package is a basic biometric package that includes tests and readings for:
- Blood pressure
- Waist size
- Fasting blood sugar
The discounted Know Your 5 package is $50; this package regularly costs $80.
If you are over the age of 50, you will also receive a FREE take-home colon cancer screening kit. This does not replace colonoscopy, but it is an excellent first-line screening.
Why Should You Know Your 5?
Why You Should Know Your: Blood Pressure
High blood pressure, or hypertension, is a serious medical condition that many people don’t know they have. It can lead to cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease and stroke.
Why You Should Know Your: Waist Size
A large waistline nearly doubles your risk of dying prematurely. Why? Belly fat sends a toxic stream of chemicals into your whole body.
Why You Should Know Your: Weight
Obesity can cause health problems such as cardiovascular disease, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), gout, hypertension, high blood pressure and cancer.
Why You Should Know Your: Cholesterol Levels
High cholesterol is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Your HDL, the healthy cholesterol, needs to be 50 or better; your LDL, the unhealthy cholesterol, should be under 100.
Why You Should Know Your: Fasting Blood Sugar
Testing your fasting blood sugar (FBS) measures your risk for diabetes, a chronic disease that can lead to blindness, cardiac disease, kidney failure, nerve problems and an impaired immune system.
The Dr. Oz Show has no formal business affiliation with Life Line. Dr. Oz nor does The Dr. Oz Show make any revenue from these screenings.
