Too many people take their state of health for granted and they don’t visit a doctor much if at all. They reason that if they are feeling OK and have no symptoms that they are in relatively good health so why spend the time or money to see a doctor? The only problem with this model is that most of the more serious conditions that become serious problems start out with little to no symptoms.
That is why Lifeline Screening works so well. People can easily set up an appointment for screening for a day or two away and not have to spend the time of seeing their primary doctor to be referred to a testing facility. The doctor referral method can take weeks compared to a few days with Lifeline Screening. The pricing is very competitive too.
Lifeline Screening has screenings and tests that give indications of what is really going on in the body. Ultrasound lets doctors “see” under the skin and even allows the watching of the blood flow in arteries, helping to locate any potential blockage. Elecrocardiographing allows the locating of an irregular heartbeat which can cause blood clots, and stroke.
When you set your appointment, you will be told about any preparations you should take care of before you come. If you are going to have a blood test, you will be advised to fast for a 6 to 12 hour period before your test time depending on the screening you are going to have.
You should dress casually, with loose fitting clothing so you will be comfortable during your screenings. Women should wear slacks and a loosely fitted at the bottom blouse or top. Men can wear comfortable slacks and a sports shirt. You will be asked to lift up your top for certain tests such as electrocardiograph and the ultrasound screenings. You will at no time be asked to disrobe for the tests.
When you arrive at the Lifeline Screening Center, you will be given paperwork that will ask for your name, address, zip code, health history and the name of your doctor. The time spent is usually no more than an hour, and when you are finished you will be given a summary of the results to be given to your doctor.

Life Line works with doctor’s offices all around the country to do specific exams for their patients. From time to time, there are also community health events hosted by Life Line where patients can get updated health data to take to their doctors, or at their doctor’s suggestion.
Quick, inexpensive, and comprehensive screenings allow a patient and their doctor to make more informed decisions about their health. Some screenings will give results the same day, otherwise they can be mailed to the patient and brought to their primary physician.
Preventative medicine is one of the most important, yet easily overlooked aspects of health care. Early screening can detect the onset of conditions before they become serious, allowing for less expensive and more comprehensive treatments. For example, a doctor may suggest a change of diet and exercise if a screening shows a person is at risk of developing cardiovascular diseases, or high cholesterol.
We live in an age where many people take the state of their health for granted and seldom visit their doctor unless something seems to be going wrong. There are many diseases and ailments that have little to no symptoms until they become advanced, and by then it can be too late.
Lifeline Screen is a testing company that offers relatively inexpensive screening tests that are normally only available at hospitals or stand-alone testing facilities. Most often the tests are not available at the local doctor’s office.
The tests consist of an ultrasound test, a finger-stick blood test, and a limited electrocardiograph. All of these screening tests are non-invasive in nature, and the results are made available to a person’s primary care physician as a regular procedure.
The ultrasound is similar to the test that a pregnant mother receives when she wants to know the sex of her baby. With the ultrasound, the condition of the arteries can be examined such as aortic aneurysm screening, Carotid artery screening, and bone density screening for osteoporosis.
The finger-stick blood test can create a lipid blood panel that tests for the different cholesterol levels, glucose screening for diabetes risk, C-reactive protein measure for cardiovascular disease, and liver enzymes to test for liver disease.
The limited electrocardiograph tests for an irregular heartbeat which is also called atrial fibrillation, or A-Fib as it is also called. This condition is very dangerous as it can throw off blood clots which cause stroke. This condition is something that a person’s physician will want to be aware of as soon as possible as treatment promptly can mean life or death.
These tests are the same screenings that medical professionals use every day to test their patients, only with Lifeline Screening they are being given at a substantial discount. The testing locations are published on the Lifeline screening website and are usually located in public venues and employer settings.
