Life Line Screening is a company that provides comprehensive screening for people so that potential health issues can be detected. The screenings come in three forms, ultrasound, finger-stick blood screenings, and an EKG. These are all acceptable tests, and they are performed by trained personnel.
We may feel OK most of the time, but it is possible to have something going on from a medical standpoint and not know it until it is too late. Abnormalities such as the detection of blockages in the carotid arteries, abdominal arteries, and other sensitive areas can be detected by the ultrasound.
The finger-stick blood test can get results from some blood tests. Different tests include a full lipid blood panel, which measures a person’s total cholesterol, HDL and LDL measurements, glucose levels, C-reactive protein, which measures indicators for cardiovascular disease, and elevated liver enzymes.
The EKG screening can indicate if there is any atrial fibrillation which can detect the possibility of a stroke. There are many other tests and results that can be derived from the Life Line screening process, and of course, all of the results are shared with the individual’s personal doctor.

From time to time it is important to have the results of these tests known so that a person’s medical doctor can evaluate the person’s current physical condition. Many people do not go to the doctor at all. Thus it is unknown as to how that person is fit or not fit from a medical standpoint.
Heart disease is a good example. A person can be on the way to having a heart attack, and not have any symptoms that he or she is aware of. Sometimes symptoms are so mild that people tend to shrug them off thinking they are just achy or tired. With bona fide test results from Life Line, a person’s doctor can take charge and perhaps save their life.
