Life Line Screening offers preventative tests for individuals enabling a more proactive role in their own healthcare through early treatment or beneficial lifestyle changes.
Three methods of screenings are offered: ultrasound screenings, finger-stick blood screenings, and limited electrocardiograph (EKG). Using these methods, patients are screened for anything from high blood pressure to heart disease. A family history of diabetes, for instance, indicates the need to get screened for Type 2 Diabetes. But what if you don’t have access to your family’s health history or simply don’t understand your risk factors? Life Line Screenings offers the Complete Wellness Package to take the guesswork out of this decision. The package includes tests for Carotid Artery Disease, Peripheral Arterial Disease, Osteoporosis, and an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm.
During a carotid artery disease screening, the arteries in the neck are tested for narrowing and a decrease in blood flow. This can help determine if you are at a higher risk for stroke. Similarly, a test for peripheral arterial disease determines if the arteries leading to your limbs are constricted from plaque build-up, which can increase your risk of developing heart disease. An aortic abdominal aneurysm is a serious condition where the main artery in your stomach bulges and potentially can burst. An osteoporosis screening measures your bone mineral density, assessing your risk for bone fractures. All of these tests are performed using non-invasive ultrasound equipment.
With just these four preventive health screenings you will be better informed about your risk for heart disease, stroke, weakened bones, and a potentially fatal aneurysm. You will gain peace of mind and improve your health through proactive preventative care under Life Line Screening.
