How much do you know about the screenings offered by Life Line Screening? An easy way to learn more about our screening services is through our informational video. Discover the multiple screening and laboratory services provided by Life Line Screening that are designed to identify your risk for life-altering health conditions before they occur.

“Life Line Screening provides a number of screening services. Vascular screenings for stroke risk include a carotid artery screening and a check for atrial fibrillation. We also provide a screening for P-A-D, peripheral arterial disease, also known as hardening of the arteries, and a check for abdominal aortic aneurysms. A check for osteoporosis risk is also offered.
In addition to these important tests, Life Line Screening offers a variety of laboratory services, including tests for cholesterol, glucose which is diabetes risk, C-reactive protein, an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease, kidney function, and liver function.
Along with these tests, Life Line Screening also offers a comprehensive risk assessment with a personalized report called 6 for Life. It tells you your risk for six major diseases, including stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and heart failure.
We also provide biometrics, such as blood pressure, waist size, and body mass index, and a heart attack risk score that tells you your risk of having a first-time heart attack or dying of heart disease in the next ten years.
Other tests may be available, as well. If at any time during the screening process you would like to add another test, or ask a question, please do so. Our staff is happy to help.
When your screenings are completed you will be able to leave the screening event. You may have some of your lab test results in hand. Other results will be sent to you by mail or email within 21 days.
Your screenings will be reviewed by one of our board-certified physicians, with the exception of the 6 for Life health assessment, where your screening results are run through a clinically-based predictive program. Your results packet is specific to you and your age and risk factors and is signed by your reviewing physician. Be sure to share these results with your personal primary care doctor.
If we find a condition today that requires urgent attention, we will notify you immediately. Otherwise, you will receive a complete report in the mail or email in 21 days.
As you’ve just seen, your screening is an important step in your wellness plan and Life Line Screening will continue to work with you to maintain the most valuable asset you own – your health. At the appropriate time, Life Line Screening will contact you to schedule your next visit. For many people, that is approximately one year later, but keep in mind not every test is needed every year.
