The Paramus Board of Health, in cooperation with Medical Laboratory Diagnostics, will conduct its annual Blood Chemistry Screening on Saturday, September 25, 2010. “The purpose of the program” according to John Hopper, Borough Health Officer, “is to identify individuals at risk for coronary heart disease and diabetes, and to prevent the associated premature death and disability associated with these diseases.”
The fee for a basic health profile with a complete blood count, HDL and LDL cholesterol level will be $16.00. PSA testing for men will cost an additional $17.00. PSA is a blood test that screens for prostate cancer and other prostate disease, and is recommended for men 50 years and over by the American Cancer Society. An elevated PSA level in the blood may be an early indicator of prostate cancer or prostate disease. Digital rectal exam of the prostate, also recommended for men over 50, can be done by a private physician.
