The wisest people take good care of their health. With all of the possible medical conditions out there, it is prudent to undergo a fast Lifeline Screening to ensure that there are not hidden health problems already at work. Prevention is key towards maintaining health. This screening can detect diabetes, heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, AAA’s, and poor liver function. It can also find different cancers including lung, vitamin deficiencies, mental deficits and so much more. There is nothing to lose, and everything to gain, by completing a Lifeline Screening. The sooner a screening is done, the better your chances of avoiding catastrophic disease complications.

The recommendations are that persons at least 55 years old, or more, should be tested for several diseases. This is so simple to do, and the benefits are immense. Worried about bothersome preparation orders? Relax, individuals only need to eat their last, lighter meal, four hours before the anticipated test. During the four-hour fast, it is permissible to drink smaller amounts of water. A little coffee or tea may also be taken. That’s it. There are no hard preparations. Dress causally in clothes suited for activity. Wear a comfortable outfit. If possible, short-sleeved tops are advised to enable access for procedures.
