Pritikin Executive Health Exam Details
The exam’s duration generally ranges from one to three days. The standard fee for the Pritikin Executive Physical includes medical services plus 2 nights' hotel accommodations and your meals at the Pritikin resort. If you stay longer than 2 nights, additional fees accrue.
Standard Services of the Executive Health Exam:
- Comprehensive health history and physical by your Pritikin board-certified physician. This consultation focuses on your personal health issues and launches a highly individualized plan of lifestyle and health enhancement.
- Cardiac and fitness evaluation performed with both resting and exercise EKGs as well as a treadmill stress test under the direct supervision of a Pritikin physician.
- Comprehensive cardiovascular risk blood panel, including cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides, fasting insulin, and inflammatory markers such as high sensitivity C-reactive protein. Also evaluated is the size of HDL and LDL particles, since new research shows that particle size can dramatically impact your risk of a heart attack.
- Complete blood count, thyroid function, liver functions, kidney function, iron levels, blood sugar, electrolytes, kidney functions, urinalysis, PSA levels for men, and vitamin D levels. The latter is vital because emerging research is finding that many Americans are deficient in vitamin D, increasing their risk of numerous diseases.
- DEXA bone density scan. Osteoporosis afflicts women and men. DEXA will help you take care of your bones before you’re at risk of a fracture.
- DEXA body composition scan. Your bathroom scale can be so wrong. Far more important is determining how lean you are, and striving for a body with more muscle and less fat. Pritikin’s scan sets you on the right track.
- RMR (resting metabolic rate) test. For losing weight, it is helpful to know your RMR (the number of calories your body naturally burns daily with little or no activity). Your Pritikin team then tailors guidelines to your body.
- Hearing screening
- Biomechanical and musculoskeletal evaluation by Pritikin's physical therapists.
- Follow-up with your Pritikin physician to finalize recommendations and plan your personal path to well being.
You may also schedule one-on-one consultations with Pritikin health professionals, including:
- Nutrition consultation to plan your dietary goals, including grocery shopping, cooking, and restaurant dining.
- Exercise consultation to provide you with a personalized exercise plan.
- Lifestyle consultation to help you develop new stress-minimizing strategies that enhance your health, productivity, and creativity.
Additional Services and Testing (As Indicated By Your Personal Needs) Include:
