Lifeline Screening is an organization that provides a variety of health screenings and tests. These screenings help their clients to recognize any problem areas they may have in their physical health and then to make lifestyle adjustments accordingly. This is important because prevention is the best form of treatment for many diseases and and health disorders.
A major goal of Lifeline Screening is to promote healthy lifestyles on a community level so as to help people live longer, happier and healthier lives. They recognize the importance of providing individuals with information about their personal health so as to empower them to make preventative lifestyle decisions.
Lifeline Screenings performs screenings for health issues such as abdominal aortic aneurysms, atrial fibrillation, osteoporosis, testosterone deficiency, congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, peripheral arterial disease, chronic kidney disease, lung cancer, prostate cancer, colorectal cancer, thyroid disease, diabetes and heart disease. They also offer health screenings of the carotid artery, c-reactive protein levels, liver enzyme levels, vitamin D levels, blood pressure and cholesterol levels. They conduct these tests using ultrasound and electrocardiogram (EKG) technologies, in addition to blood draws.
An interesting service that Lifeline Screenings provides is the Health Risk Assessment – 6 for Life. This assessment provides information about a person’s risk of contracting major chronic diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, congestive heart failure, diabetes, heart disease, lung cancer and stroke. The assessment involves a questionnaire regarding personal health and current lifestyle choices, familial health and a finger-prick blood test. These two simple steps provide individuals with important information regarding their potential for having a major disease. By having this information, these people can make lifestyle choices to prevent these diseases.
