The Henry and Stark County Health Departments remind area residents that Blood Profiles are now available at clinics held Monday through Friday starting at 7:00am till 11am at the Health Department's Main Office, 110 N. Burr Blvd, Kewanee; and at 8:00am at their Colona Office 103 1st St., Colona.
The fasting blood profile clinics offer area residents the opportunity to receive indepth profiles like the Chem Screen/CBC basic blood profile, a TSH/Lipid panel, and the PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) test. These tests are available without a physician's order.
Insurances, such as Medicare, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and Mutual Medical, can be billed with a physician's order.
The PSA, for males age 50 and over, is a blood test to be used as a screening tool by physicians and should only be used in conjunction with a doctor's physical exam.
Fasting is required for the Lipid profile. Therefore, participants should not eat or drink anything other than water for 8-12 hours prior to the blood draw. Test results will be sent by mail to participants and their physicians.
Please note, appointments which are necessary, may be made by contacting the Health Department at (309) 852-5272.
