What Are Some Benefits of Getting a Life Line Medical Screening?

The benefits of getting a Life Line medical screening include early detection of several different diseases and medical conditions, depending on what test is performed. Life Line Screening provides three types of screenings: ultrasound, finger-stick blood and limited electrocardiograph, according to its website.

Life Line Screening's Doppler color flow ultrasound screenings reliably detect abdominal aortic aneurysms, carotid artery diseases and symptoms of peripheral arterial disease and osteoporosis. Finger-stick blood screenings measure cholesterol, triglycerides, blood sugar levels, C-reactive protein and elevated liver enzymes. The limited electrocardiograph screening detects irregular heartbeats, a heart condition that increases the risk of stroke, states Life Line Screening.
