Preparing For A Lifeline Screening Test

There are many people who do not see a doctor on a regular basis, not even for an annual physical. They seem to think that if nothing is seemingly wrong, then they must be in good health. The problem with that philosophy is that most of serious health problems that we develop all start out with very small, almost unnoticeable symptoms.

That is where Lifeline Screening comes in because they offer all of the major screenings and tests that are usually found only at hospitals and medical testing facilities at a nice discount.

Ultrasound screenings are one major source of screenings. With ultrasound it is possible to “see” inside of the body and view the major organs in real time as they are functioning. It is possible to detect rate of blood flow through an artery so as to determine a possible extent of blockage.

With a finger-stick blood test a complete lipid panel can be built to determine the cholesterol levels, glucose levels, and liver enzyme levels to detect liver disease. The limited electrocardiograph detects atrial fibrillation or an irregular heartbeat which can cause blood clots and thus a possible stroke.

These and many more tests are indicative of potential problems and can be shared with a person’s personal physician. The ease and bargain costs of the tests make it convenient and cost-effective for people to show up at public venues or at a place of employment.

The tests and screenings are easy to do and are very casual as far as what to wear and scheduling. For most tests clothing should be loose fitting and comfortable. You will be lying down, sitting or standing, depending on the test that is being given.

For most blood tests it is a good idea to fast for a 12 hour period prior to the test. Drinking water is ok as it will help to purify the system and keep you hydrated during the fasting period. For more info about us: http://www.lifelinescreening.com/What-We-Do/Find-a-Location click here.
