Kim Kardashian keeps her health in check and encourages others to do so. The SKIMS founder took advantage of the newest medical innovation, Prenuvo, a full-on body scan that’ll detect various diseases, including the very early stages of cancer and even musculoskeletal abnormalities.
Kim informs her followers via Instagram on August 8th about the Prenuvo scan, calling it a “live-saving machine.” In the to-slide post, the reality star wears dark gray scrubs and white booties on her feet. Her dark hair is up in a high pony. Then, it wouldn’t be Kim Kardashian without her trademark selfie.
“I recently did this @prenuvo scan and had to tell you all about this life-saving machine,” she captions, and continues, “The Prenuvo full-body scan has the ability to detect cancer and diseases such as aneurysms in its earliest stages before symptoms arise. It was like getting [an] MRI for an hour with no radiation. It has really saved some of my friends’ lives, and I just wanted to share. #NotAnAd.”
Kris Jenner got the fully-body scan during the third season of The Kardashians, and despite catching the hip replacement she had last October, Kris has the health of a 40-year-old.
The 100‘s Eliza Taylor also underwent the full scan, sharing her results on Instagram after two weeks of undergoing it.
On Monday, Kim revealed that she broke her shoulder, aka her collarbone, and had been taking a hiatus from her workout sessions. Once she’s healed (and she is now), she’ll resume her gym time because “nothing can keep me down,” she says.
Is Prenuvo expensive?
According to Prenuvo’s website, the complete will set you back $2499, but its benefits outweigh the price as it’ll help with preventive treatments if something foreign is caught early. There are two other options that run cheaper such as the torso scan that rings in at $999 and the head and torso clocking in at $1799. While health insurance doesn’t cover the procedures, people have received partial or even full reimbursements from their providers.
The whole scan takes an hour to complete, but patients can binge on Netflix to speed up the time.
Kim Kardashian dedicate UCLA Esophageal Center to the late Robert Kardashian
In 2020, Kim and the rest of her family gave the late lawyer, and most importantly, their father, a true dedication by naming the new center for esophageal disorders, including cancer, after him. The Robert G. Kardashian Center For Esophageal Health specializes in care and treatment for the esophagus, along with education on its diseases and training programs. Kardashian passed from an aggressive case of cancer in 2003, but his family is keeping his legacy alive through his impact as a dad and helping others take preventive care.
At the time of the opening, Kim took to Twitter (now X), to express her wish for the center:
“My wish is that other families can have more information [on esophageal health], and we can also focus on health and prevention.“
