Life Line Screening to discover stokes
From all appearances, Trudi Clubb leads a healthy lifestyle: She doesn't drink alcohol, doesn't smoke and doesn't eat meat, So when she found out that both carotid arteries in her neck were at least 90% blocked, she was stunned. "I had none of the typical signs of the disease," says this resident of Ocean City, MD. "But because the Life Line Screening tests revealed severe blockages, I saw my doctor right away and was scheduled for surgery to help me avoid a stroke." Since her initial screening in October 2000, Trudi has had two surgeries to open up both arteries. She's thrilled to be alive so she can shout: "I owe my life to Life Line Screening!"
What is Life Line Screening?
Life Line Screening, the largest mobile vascular screening service in the nation, has provided affordable and painless services since 1993. Highly trained health professionals, using the latest ultrasound technology, perform all of the screening. Board certified physicians then review your test results and the reports are sent back to you to share with your physician.
How Life Line Screening can help. Physicians Typically can't order diagnostic tests for people with no apparent symptoms. Life Line Screening screens for healthy conditions and diseases that often do not present obvious symptoms which allows you to take an active role in your own health care. Because Life Line Screening performs so many screenings nationwide, they can provide these lifesaving test at a very reasonable cost.
