There are few things more important than your health. We all do what we can to protect our health but sometimes unexpected illnesses can get the better of us. These health conditions can be emotionally, physically, and financially devastating if not caught in time.
This is the problem that Lifeline has made its mission to remedy. Even though it is impossible to prevent every on this possible, early detection is the number one way to stay ahead of the curve and keep healthy. Not only can a screening improve recovery time, but it can also make a difference of tens of thousands of dollars once the medical bills come in.
Lifeline is not a medical care provider, instead, they are an independent Laboratory that focuses entirely on screening and monitoring for potential illnesses. Because this service is their only focus they’re able to provide health screening services at a fraction of the price customers would be charged in a hospital.
When it comes to preparation, it is absolutely vital that you follow the instructions exactly. Each procedure will be a little bit different but there are a few things you can do to ensure an accurate screen every time.
For screening related to the heart, cardiovascular system, and nervous system it is important to wear loose-fitting and clothing. Turtlenecks in pantyhose will not be permitted. Blood flow around your wrist ankles and neck must be completely uninhibited during this procedure.
Three conditions related to digestion, diabetes, and the liver you will need to fast for some period of time prior to the exam. This can range from 4 hours all the way up to twelve. During this time it is recommended that you rest so you do not overexert yourself; potential low blood sugar for some clients can leave them feeling light-headed and at risk for falls and other accidental mishaps.
While it’s not possible to stop every bit of illness, early screening can make recovery quicker, less painful and far cheaper. All the more reason that it’s important to prepare and dress as instructed to ensure an accurate screening.
