Preventative care is imperative to keeping your body healthy and in tip-top shape. Each year, thousands of people die from chronic diseases that could have been prevented or maintained through proper care. To discover if you or a loved one suffer from a chronic disease, you must undergo regular testing including blood tests, vascular tests, ultrasounds, and other proactive testing procedures.
Everyone has their own set of risk factors which determine which types of preventative care you should pursue. Life Line Screening provides the tests you need after identifying the ones that are important to your health based on your history along with your family history. A comprehensive screening process includes:
Finger-Stick Blood Screening
From a small, painless prick of your finger, a complete lipid panel can be completed on your body which includes screenings that indicate the levels you possess of good and bad cholesterol along with a glucose screening. This helps to determine if you are at risk for diabetes. A high-sensitivity C-reactive protein test can also be completed from this droplet of blood that will indicate whether or not you are at risk for heart disease. A liver enzyme test can also be run to ensure that your liver is functioning properly and learn more about Life Line Screening.

An electrocardiograph will help determine if your heart is beating correctly. It can help indicate if you have blood clots or are at risk for heart failure or a stroke.
Life Line Screening is based in Houston, Texas, but was founded in Florida. In 1993, Colin Scully and Timothy Phillips started the company that now provides services worldwide and Lifeline Screening’s lacrosse camp.
Throughout the world, Life Line Screening has conducted millions of health screenings and conducts over one million screenings per year. These screenings include ultrasound scans, blood screenings, and electrocardiographs.
