Preparing For Your Visit To Lifeline Screening

Lifeline Screening provides high-level medical testing at the convenience of the patient and at very competitive pricing. Many people in our society are reluctant to go to the doctor on a regular basis for number of reasons, but they leave themselves vulnerable to conditions they take for granted. They mostly feel that if they are not having any symptoms they are going to be OK.

Unfortunately this is a flawed philosophy as most of the dreaded medical conditions we face get their start in our bodies with little to no symptoms. This is where Lifeline Screening shines, as the tests and screenings that are provided are of top quality and are the very same types of procedures that used in hospitals and medical testing facilities.

There are many screenings and test that are primary in finding indications of potential medical issues. Ultrasound is one method of looking into the body and “seeing” what is going on. For example it is possible to see the blood flow in arteries, assessing possible blockage, arterial flow in relation to cardiovascular issues, and measuring the bone density to check for osteoporosis.

A few drops of blood from a finger prick tells medical experts what your cholesterol level are as well as your glucose levels pertaining to diabetes, and the levels of your liver enzymes which tests for liver disease.

It is easy to work with Lifeline Screening as you can set up an appointment for just a day or two in advance which is much more convenient than most medical appointments nowadays. When you set your appointment you will be given instructions on how to approach your tests. For more info about us: http://www.lifelinescreening.com/What-We-Do/Screening-Packages click here.

If you are having a blood test you will probably be asked to fast for a period of 6 to 12 hours ahead of time, but be sure to drink enough water to stay hydrated. Be sure and dress appropriately by wearing loosely fitted clothing. Women should wear slacks with a loosely fitted top. Men can wear trousers that are comfortable with a sports shirt. You may be asked to lift your top for certain tests, such as ultrasound, but at no time will you be asked to disrobe.

Once you are finished with your screenings, you will be given a summation report which you can take to your doctor for further evaluation.
