Advanced Health Screenings
Preventive Health Screenings at Cogent Family Healthcare
In Mountain View, California, Dr. Stephen Sims goes beyond traditional preventive health screenings to offer advanced screenings to detect chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer, as well as to identify risk factors that can cause life-threatening acute episodes of heart attack and stroke.
Even if you don’t experience any signs or symptoms of disease, trouble could be brewing. Heart disease is known as the silent killer. As plaque builds inside your arteries, pieces can break off and form a clot in an artery that leads to the heart or brain, causing a massive heart attack or stroke.
Being overweight or obese and leading a sedentary lifestyle can lead to type 2 diabetes. Uncontrolled high blood sugars for long periods of time can cause numerous complications including eye disease and blindness, kidney failure, heart disease, nerve damage in the extremities, and poor circulation resulting in wounds that won’t heal and foot or leg amputation.
Our goal at Cogent Family Healthcare is to prevent these medical crises altogether and help you live as healthy a life as possible. Our advanced health screenings include:
- IMT ultrasound and other vascular health testing
- Advanced lipid and metabolic blood tests
- Micronutrient, antioxidant, and immune function testing
- Nutrition evaluation
