What Will I Learn?

If you give blood, urine and saliva, you will learn:

  • your levels of good and bad cholesterol which affect your risk for heart disease
  • if your kidney function is abnormal
  • whether you have diabetes
  • whether you have been exposed to heavy metals such as lead, mercury and cadmium
  • whether you test positive for hepatitis B or C

Our timeline for providing you with this information depends on your results.

  • Some results, such as blood pressure, will be given at the time of your physical exam.
  • Normal results will be mailed to you within 14 to 18 weeks.
  • If your results indicate that you are in urgent need of medical attention, we will contact you immediately.
  • Referrals to free or low-cost care will be provided with your results.

Remember, to protect your confidentiality, we provide results only to you (not to family members).

Please call 1-877-212-7229 to schedule an appointment if you have been selected to participate in NYC HANES.
