Biometric Screening

Synergy Wellness professionals perform biometric screenings.

You can't effectively change your numbers if you don’t know what they are.  Synergy Wellness puts your employees in the drivers seat by providing fast, accurate, easy to understand results.  Our highly skilled Health Coaches will help steer them on the road to better health by reviewing the results, answering questions and providing practical advice.  Each participant will receive a customized report that will serve as a road map to help guide them on their journey. 

At the heart of all of our programs is a Know Your Numbers Biometric Screening.  We have grouped our services into several packages designed to fit any budget.  Whether you choose one of our packages or design one of your own, we will work with you in every aspect to exceed your expectations.

Cardiac Basic*  is our standard package.  It will include a partial lipid profile (total cholesterol, HDL, TC/HDL risk ratio), blood sugar, blood pressure, body mass index (BMI), measured height, weight and body fat %.

Cardiac Advantage* is our enhanced program which includes: full lipid profile (total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides, and TC/HDL risk ratio), blood sugar, blood pressure, body mass index (BMI), body fat %, measured height, weight, and body fat %.

Cardiac Premiere* is our premium package which includes a full lipid profile (total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides, and TC/HDL risk ratio), blood sugar, blood pressure, BMI, body fat %, measured height, weight, waist circumference and  cardiac risk assessment. Cardiac Premiere replaces the regular blood sugar test with the Hemoglobin A1c test, a much more sensitive, and diagnostic test.

*Each of our programs includes a basic review of the results with one of our health coaches.  This review includes a  basic explanation of the results.  It does not include an individualized report, or personal program.  For a more indepth Health Coaching session please review our health coaching section for more options.

See below for a brief description of the test listed above.

10 Year Cardiac Risk Assessment  uses recent data from the Framingham Heart Study to estimate 10-year risk for “hard” coronary heart disease outcomes (myocardial infarction and coronary death). This tool is designed to estimate risk in adults aged 20 and older who do not have heart disease or diabetes.  The risk factors included in the Framingham calculation are age, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, systolic blood pressure, treatment for hypertension, and cigarette smoking. Because of a larger database, Framingham estimates are more robust for total cholesterol than for LDL cholesterol. Note, however, that LDL cholesterol remains the primary target of therapy. The Framingham risk score gives estimates for “hard CHD” which includes myocardial infarction and coronary death.

A1c is being recognized as a more stable screening option for diabetes because fasting status has no bearing on the accuracy of the result.  A1c is a form of hemoglobin used primarily to identify the average plasma glucose concentration over prolonged periods of time. It is formed in a non-enzymatic glycation pathway by hemoglobin's exposure to plasma glucose. Normal levels of glucose produce a normal amount of glycated hemoglobin. As the average amount of plasma glucose increases, the fraction of glycated hemoglobin increases in a predictable way. This serves as a marker for average blood glucose levels over the previous months prior to the measurement.

Blood pressure is the force of the blood pushing against the walls of your arteries. Each time the heart beats (about 60-70 times per minute at rest), it pumps out blood into the arteries (systolic pressure). When the heart is at rest, between beats, your blood pressure falls (diastolic pressure). The measurement of blood pressure is given by these two numbers, the systolic/the diastolic. Blood pressure is an important indicator for health because a high blood pressure measurement indicates another medical problem.

BMI (Body Mass Index) is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to both men and women. A mathematical formula involving your height and weight are used to calculate your BMI. BMI is just one indicator of many factors that may place you at risk for developing a chronic disease (such as cancer, diabetes, or heart disease).

Body Fat Percentage is a measurement that indicates how much of your body is made up of lean mass, and how much is made of fat. Lean mass is the weight of all bones, organs, muscles and body fluids. Knowing your body fat percentage can help you determine what times of preventive steps are required to achieve a healthier life. A body fat measurement above the expected ranges may place you at risk for heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and other chronic health problems.

Cholesterol is a fatty substance found in foods high in saturated fat like fatty meats, egg yolks, whole milk dairy products, etc. Though cholesterol is important for the function of our cells, too much of can be harmful to your health. A cholesterol screening is important because it measures the levels of cholesterol in your blood a determines if you are at risk for health problems associated with high cholesterol, such as atherosclerosis - the build up of plaque in your arteries.


Full Lipid Profile is a blood test that checks total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides. Participants must fast for 12 hours prior to the test.

Glucose also known as blood sugar, is the chief source of energy that your body uses to move, think and function each day. When you eat foods that have sugar (carbohydrates) your body processes the complex sugar into glucose, the simplest form of sugar. If your body is unable to process excess sugars effectively your blood glucose levels will rise and place you at risk for a condition known as diabetes mellitus. The ideal level for glucose is less than 110 mg/dl if you fasted before the test. If you have not fasted, the ideal level is less than 130 mg/dl.


HDL (High Density Lipoprotein) is called the "good" cholesterol because it actually helps clean your arteries of plaque deposits that can cause blockages. High levels of HDL may lower your risk of heart disease. The optimal HDL level is higher than 40 mg/dl.

LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein) is known as the "bad" cholesterol because it contributes to the build up of plaque deposits on your artery walls, a condition called atherosclerosis. The ideal LDL level is less than 130 mg/dl.

Partial Lipid Profile is a non-fasting test that measures the total cholesterol/HDL ratio and glucose levels in the blood.

Total Cholesterol/HDL Ratio (TC/HDL Ratio) measures the amount of good cholesterol (HDL) compared to the total cholesterol level. Low ratio levels reduce your risk of developing heart disease. The ideal TC/HDL ratio is 4.5 or less.

Triglycerides are a type of "bad fat" found in your blood stream. Triglycerides are stored in your fat cells. When you eat, some of the calories you consume are used for energy, and others are converted to triglycerides and stored, to be released when you need energy. If you eat more calories than your body burns on a regular basis, your triglycerides might become too high. High triglyceride levels will put you at risk for high LDL cholesterol and low HDL cholesterol. Triglycerides are composed of fatty acids and glycerol. Triglyceride levels can be significantly affected by how recently you have eaten. Ideally triglyceride screenings should be performed on fasting individuals. The ideal level for triglycerides is less than 150 mg/dl.

Waist Circumference is a measurement of the distance around the waist. A high waist circumference is associated with an increased risk for type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemia, hypertension and cardiovascular disease when the BMI is between 25 and 34.9. Changes in waist circumference over time can indicate an increase or decrease in abdominal fat. Increased abdominal fat is associated with an increased risk of heart disease.
