How to Prepare For Your Lifeline Screening Exam

Lifeline Screening is the leading private testing facility that helps individuals identify potential health problems early. Many people just don’t get too concerned about the state of health as long as everything feels OK and they have no symptoms of any health issues.

The problem with that attitude is that most of the health problems that end up with serious consequences have little to no symptoms until they become quite serious. Heart issues do give warning signs such as shortness of breath, chest pain and swelling in the extremities. But sometimes warning comes too late to do much about it if a heart attack is a result.

Lifeline screening uses ultrasound, EKG screenings, and simple blood screenings to detect signs of impending diseases and illnesses early on so that proactive steps can be taken to lessen the chances of anything serious occurring. Ultrasound uses the same technology that is used in hospitals to detect whether a baby in the mother’s womb is going to be a boy or a girl.

With Ultrasound, medical personnel can see how well the blood flow is in the arteries. It is possible to detect areas in the body where potential blockages might occur. The bone density can be measured to detect osteoporosis.

A drop or two of blood can be used to create a blood panel that measures the levels of cholesterol in a person’s blood. Both high and low cholesterol levels as well as the levels of triglycerides in the blood.

In preparation for screenings with Lifeline screening it is recommended that people wear loose fitting clothing so that they will not be uncomfortable during the tests. Women should wear a casual blouse or top along with slacks, and men should wear trousers that are comfortable and a sports shirt. People may be asked to lift up their top or shirt for an EKG and similar tests. For more info about us: http://www.lifelinescreening.com/What-We-Do click here.

If a blood test is going to be given it is possible that fasting will be required either on a 6 or 12-hour basis. If people have questions they should call Lifeline Screening. All of the screening tests are the same that are given in hospitals and testing facilities and they are usually less expensive as well.
