Iroquois Memorial Hospital will offer its Know Your Numbers Lab Fair Monday-Friday, Sept. 14-19. Each day offers a blood panel with health screenings for a nominal fee, plus additional screenings will be available. The fair is 7-10 a.m. each day and takes place in the lobby of IMH, 200 Fairman Ave., Watseka. No appointments are necessary and you don’t have to be affiliated with the hospital, or any of its clinics or doctors; however.
A blood panel health screening includes : Lipid panel (cholesterol, triglyceride, HDL), complete blood count with automated differential, and comprehensive chemistry panel including: ALT, AST, albumin, alkaline phosphate, bilirubin, calcium, chloride, creatinine, glucose (blood sugar), sodium potassium, total protein, and urea nitrogen (BUN). A 10-12 hour fasting is recommended for the most accurate results for the blood panel.
