Preventive Health Screenings Across the World: Screen For Life

Angelo Ziaziaris - April 25, 2013



Screen for Life | Preventive Health Screenings

Just like in the United States, cardiovascular disease is the most costly disease in Australia. The ailment costs more Australian lives and healthcare spending than any other disease. In fact, the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare declares that heart disease causes the second-highest amount of disability and premature death behind only cancer.

These startling statistics hit close to home among Americans because heart disease is also the number one killer in the United States. While Americans can turn to Life Line Screening for a proactive approach to identifying heart disease risk, Australians can turn to Screen For Life.

Screen For Life is the Australian branch of the Life Line Screening family. Similar to Life Line Screening, the Australian screening company provides health testing for potentially dangerous health conditions, including:

  • Stroke/carotid artery disease
  • Stroke/atrial fibrillation
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm
  • Peripheral arterial disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • High cholesterol
  • Type 2 diabetes

High cholesterol is one major risk factor of heart disease, and approximately 1.3 million Australians are currently living with high cholesterol levels. While much of the blame for high cholesterol can be placed on the foods we eat, it is important to identify high cholesterol levels and work proactively to lower them through healthy lifestyles or medication recommendations from a physician. This can help decrease risk of developing heart disease or experiencing a life-threatening heart attack.

Together with the preventive health screenings in the United States and the United Kingdom, Screen For Life strives to promote lifelong health and well-being by identifying either risk of disease or valuable peace of mind. Taking charge of your own health is possible wherever you live, whether it’s here in the U.S. or halfway across the world in Australia.
