One of the benefits offered after your third successful donation within the calendar year is an Advanced Wellness Check, which provides donors with a complete lipid profile: fasting cholesterol, HDL, LDL and triglycerides.
A lipid profile can help determine a person’s risk of coronary artery disease. These tests have been shown to be good indicators of whether or not someone is likely to have a heart attack and/or stroke caused by blocked vessels.
Understanding cholesterol numbers is as important as getting cholesterol levels checked on a regular basis. Keep in mind that regular doctor visits are recommended for the ideal health care practices.BL Rewards donors can track their advanced wellness results through their online accounts.
BL Rewards members can use the Advanced Wellness Check only one time per calendar year.
