Wellness Starts With Lifeline Screening

Lifeline Screening is committed to bringing affordable, preventative health services to people across the country. Preventative health screenings are helping people stay healthy longer, as well as improving quality of life. Knowing what you are at risk for allows you to make changes when possible to prevent serious health issues from arising. Lifeline Screening provides community based screening events all over America. These events are held in community centers, places of worship, senior centers, and corporations. The screenings they do are safe, non-invasive, quick and painless.

You don’t have to worry, the equipment used is the same quality that you would find in a hospital, and your screening is done by a highly trained technician. The results are then read by a board-certified physician. These results are meant to be shared with your personal doctor to help with your healthcare plan. Lifeline Screenings does three types of preventative screenings.Ultrasounds, which many people are familiar with being used in pregnancy, are widely used to detect various health issues while being painless and non-invasive. This technique can be used for Abdominal aortic aneurysm screening, as well as Carotid artery disease screening. It can also be used to look for peripheral arterial disease and osteoporosis risk.

In many locations Lifeline Screenings offers a simple finger stick test, which you can have the results of within 10 minutes. This test is used to assess your risk for diabetes and heart disease. It checks you HDL, LDL, and triglycerides, and it checks your blood sugar level. This test also checks the levels of C-reactive protein, which can let you know if you’re at risk for cardiovascular disease. It also tests ALT and AST liver enzymes, an sign of liver injury.They can also preform an EKG to find out if you have a common condition, an irregular heartbeat. This is a way to assess if you have an increased risk for stroke.
