Many people walk around carrying diseases’ risk factors in their bodies, which mostly go unidentified. The diseases eventually become fatal for the lack of timely treatment. Life Line Screening provides an opportunity for in-depth screening that identifies any underlying risk factors. With that, preventive treatments are given reducing the effects of the disease.
Life Line Screening provides procedures that are painless and non-invasive. Before undergoing the screenings, patients are required to be prepared for the procedure to run smoothly. Some of them require patients to wear the right clothing. Such procedures include the carotid artery screening that checks for stroke. The process only requires a person to wear a short-sleeved shirt that is open at the neck. Other procedures, such as hs-CRP and Elevated liver enzymes, require no prior preparations.
6 for Life Package requires the patient to fast for 8 hours before undergoing the procedure. The process involves taking the blood pressure, which calls for a short-sleeved shirt or an easy-to-roll up shirt. Other screenings that call for 8 hours fast is for glucose that checks for type 2 diabetes and the complete lipid panel that checks for high cholesterol. The bone mineral density that gauges the osteoporosis risk requires one not to wear a pantyhose. Same calls for the ankle-brachial index that seeks to find risk factors for peripheral arterial disease. The latter also requires the patient to wear a short-sleeved shirt and loose two piece clothing. Some procedures require one to keep off oil or lotion, such as the atrial fibrillation. It also requires loose clothing with no pantyhose and a watch. The cell phone should remain off during the process. Abdominal aortic aneurysm requires a prior 4 hours fast. It, however, allows for light meals for those who can’t fast. Those on medication or diabetic should follow the doctors’ orders.

For blood tests, patients should expect a sample taken from the ring or middle finger on a simple and safe procedure. Bone density screening is a step in most procedures. The patient places a bare foot into an ultrasound machine. Taking the blood pressure involves pressure cuffs placed on the upper arm. Patients can expect the professionals to guide them through every step of the screenings.
