Biometric Screenings - $45 by appointment only
Your Hy-Vee healthcare team is here to help you identify your numbers. In less than 10 minutes, your screening will reveal the results of a full lipid (cholesterol) panel - the same as you'd get at your physician's office. You will also receive your BMI (body mass index) and blood pressure. This data will be assessed to see how your health measures up! The Hy-Vee difference is that a dietitian will explain your results and provide suggestions on how to improve your numbers, if necessary. A pharmacist is also available to discuss any medication questions.

Dietitian Wellness Services   
Seeking the services of a registered and licensed dietitian is an investment in your health. A dietitian is going to do much more than tell you what to do - in some cases, you already know what to do! The trick is to identify what you’re not doing. No one expects to learn a foreign language in one session. Learning proper nutrition and how to create a healthy lifestyle takes time, too. That’s why we offer a variety of packages that allow you to choose the number of visits with your Hy-Vee dietitian. We are here to make your life easier, healthier and happier!
