Take Control of Your Health with Life Line Screening

No one wants their physician to give them bad news of a terminal disease. No one wants to be rushed to the emergency room due to a sudden illness. And sadly these circumstances happen often.

Preventative care can help prevent these illnesses or sudden chronic diseases. Life Line Screening provides the testing and information enabling the patients to be more proactive with their health care.

And the benefits of these screenings provide each patient with peace of mind their health is all good or they can take action to prevent any serious illness.

Of course, regular doctor checkups are extremely important but Life Line Screenings can provide more thorough analysis and information for the patient and the doctors.

Preparation and Expectations for Screenings

Life Line Screenings are available in various communities across most of the United States and conducted in facilities such as churches, community centers, senior centers, and organizations.

Each facility will have state-of-the-art ultrasound machines for the screenings and staffed with highly trained, experienced sonographers and medical technologists.

Since the screenings are non-invasive, each procedure requires very little preparation – simple blood test, restrictive clothing, fasting and light meals – all dependent on which screening is conducted.

On screening day, the procedures start with a brief check-in, medical forms to complete, payment remittance and then the particular testing begins.

Screenings for the following diseases are offered at Life Line Screening:

Prostate Cancer

Colorectal Cancer

High Cholesterol /Lipid Panel Test

Osteoporosis /Bone Density

Atrial Fibrillation

Peripheral Arterial Disease

Elevated Liver Enzymes

Chronic Kidney Disease

Type 2 Diabetes

Thyroid Disease

Vitamin D

Testosterone Deficiency

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

Health Risk Assessment

C – Reactive protein

Carotid Artery Disease

Once testing or screening is complete, the results will be mailed to each patient. If the results are critical, then steps are taken for immediate action.

As the population ages, various diseases may interrupt the process. These diseases may be hereditary or just part of growing older. High blood pressure, obesity, smoking and alcohol abuse are among the risk factors that lead to debilitating diseases.

If a patient, knowing their risk factors, is proactive and desires control over their health, then Life Line Screening can provide them the information through these test and screenings.

The patient can then take the necessary steps along with their physician’s suggestions to prevent any possible damage or even to ward off any other potential diseases.

Life Line Screening Offers Affordable Medical Solutions

Life Line Screening was established in 1993 as an affordable and accurate method to inform people of possible medical conditions that might need to be discussed with their personal doctor. Since the beginning of Life Line Screening, over 8 million people have received screenings, and over 1 million people per year are screened.

Many lives have been saved by people taking it upon themselves to have the preventative healthcare screenings done as many conditions are uncovered that otherwise might have resulted in serious illness and even death. Many conditions do not have noticeable symptoms until later in the illness when it has progressed to a dangerous level.

A good example of that situation is coronary artery disease or the condition where the arteries that wrap around and go into the heart become blocked with plaque. If the blood flow to the heart is restricted enough, the result is a heart attack which can result in immediate death or a prolonged disability.

All of the tests are designed to be shared with an individual’s personal physician, and they are the same tests that are done in a hospital or a stand-alone testing facility. The technicians who administer the screenings are all well-trained and would be able to work and be certified in any clinical testing facility in or out of a hospital setting.

There are three tests that are given, the ultrasound, a finger-stick blood test, and an electrocardiograph (EKG). Life Line Screening’s ultrasound test can see into a person’s body and observe the organs in real time. It is very useful for the determination of blood vessel occlusion detection. The finger-stick blood test is a tiny prick in the fatty part of a finger and with the few drops of blood collected it can develop a full lipid blood panel. The limited electrocardiograph detects irregular heart rhythms which can cause blood clots, thus a stroke.
