Life Line Screening provides individuals of all ages with the power to help prevent minor health issues from developing into serious, and expensive, medical crises. This privately run company that specializes in prevention and wellness was founded in Florida in 1993 by Colin Scully and Timothy Phillips. The idea that patients could become proactive about their health issues by being tested to prevent smaller problems from progressing, soon made the services Life Line Screening offered so popular that they expanded their health screening services across the United States and eventually into the United Kingdom by 2007.
Life Line Screening offers its clients a comprehensive array of 21 screening services. These include Atrial Fibrulation Screening, Testosterone Deficiency Screening, Congestive Heart Failure Screening, Type 2 Diabetes Screening, Chronic Kidney Disease Screening, and Screening tests to determine if prostate cancer, thyroid cancer or colorectal cancer may be present in the body. The doctor-designed preventative health screenings administered by caring, well-trained professionals at Life Line Screening clinics are very effective at uncovering hidden and potential health issues that often never present tell-tale symptoms.
The health screening services offered by Life Line Screening are easy, affordable and convenient, and best of all, painless, requiring little or no preparation by the client or any removal of clothing. Life Line exclusively uses state of-the-art technology in each of the 3 types of preventative screening processes it offers. These include Ultrasound Screenings, using sound waves to image specific structures in the body; Finger-Stick Blood Screening, to determine everything from lipid and blood glucose levels to checking levels of C-reactive protein and ALT and AST liver enzymes; and Limited Electrocardiograph to detect irregular heartbeat that often leads to stroke.
Since its inception, Life Line Screening has remained a leader in the preventative healthcare industry. Hundreds of thousands of people from all walks of life have undergone Life Line Screening tests, providing them with the peace of mind that comes from knowing exactly what health issues may be present that jeopardize their well-being. More than 60,000 Life Line clients in the last year alone were alerted to serious stroke and cardiovascular disease that presented no symptoms.
