A Life Line Screening puts the power of preventive health in your hands. The tests performed cover a wide range of health problems most commonly associated with chronic disease. Getting ready for your Life Line Screening is as easy as 1, 2, 3. The screening is easier than a visit to your doctor’s office and the procedures are completely pain free and non-invasive. Depending on the type of package you select little to no preparation is involved. Do you have an appointment for a Life Line Screening? Are you considering a Life Line Screening in the future? If so, here are several things to remember before you go to your screening.
To best prepare yourself for your Life Line Screening carefully review the specific procedure guidance. In general, the recommended clothing to wear for the screenings is a loose fitting two-piece outfit. Items to avoid include turtlenecks, pantyhose, watch, or any body lotion. Certain screenings may require fasting from four hours prior to your test to twelve hours prior to your test.
What you can expect during your first screening is a warm welcome from the check-in staff who will assist you in completing all required paperwork and process your payment. Next you will be directed to the waiting area where you will return between your tests. We know your time is valuable, so we closely follow our schedule of appointments. The screening area is where you will speak to a health technician. A simple finger stick blood test is needed next, then your height, weight, and body measurements. You are now ready for your package of tests which can last from five to ten minutes each.
The benefits immediately begin once your testing is complete. Before you leave you will meet with a technician again to receive your blood test results. All remaining test results will be mailed to the address provided in less than fifteen days. Once you have all of the results of your Life Line Screenings you can discuss them in depth with your doctor.
