Heart Disease Screenings for Heart Month

admin - February 5, 2015



0205

Heart disease is still the number one cause of death in the United States, and 70% of adults age 55+ have two or more risk factors for cardiovascular disease but are not aware of it. 

Identifying your personal risk early is key to prevention. At Life Line Screening, we recommend that everyone knows their risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Risk factors include: age 55+, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, a history of smoking, a family history of heart attack or stroke, and a personal medical history of cardiovascular diseases. These are the same screenings that your doctor could order for you, but they typically will not be paid for by insurance unless you already have symptoms.Our screenings can give you peace of mind or uncover issues before you have any symptoms.
 

Doctors Recommend Preventive Health Screenings

These comprehensive vascular screenings have proven to be safe and accurate in detecting your risks for stroke and vascular disease. Doctors who specialize in cardiovascular disease believe in these tests — 9 out of 10 doctors surveyed recommend these screenings for people at risk. Knowledge is power, and it enables you and your doctor to do something about any health issues before it’s too late. That’s why so many doctors have recommended Life Line Screening to their patients.
 

Detecting Heart Disease Early

Tests such as this are extremely helpful when it comes to early detection of heart attack risks. We believe that the power of prevention is essential to a long and healthy life. Here is a list of what our screening entails:

  • Complete Lipid Panel Screening (High Cholesterol)
  • C-reactive Protein Screening
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening
  • Glucose Screening
  • High Blood Pressure Screening

If you have any warning signs or if you know that you have some of the risk factors associated with an increased risk of heart problems, you may want to consider heart disease screening.  If you are unaware of potential risk factors please read the list here.

Life Line Screening provides preventive health screenings for heart disease to help those at risk detect problems before they lead to life-threatening consequences. Learning where you stand with your heart health is the best way to work towards a healthier life.

    HI; I do an annual screening with you all once a year; could you pl review my records and see when I need to do the next screening? Thx; this would be very helpful information for all your customers. Lately, you all have been sending me so much info I can’t tell what is important and what is not; I really don’t have the time to read all your info to find the most critical facts. JJS

    I opened your e-mail and there was a recipe for roasted chicken with sweet potatoes and now I can’t find it. I think there may have been other recipes with sweet potatoes.

    As a result of my screening in August, my doctor ordered an MRI of the brain and neck; discovered that I have a 50% blockage in the neck. Please let me know when you will be returning for screening in the Westbury area.
