Prevent Cardiovascular Disease and Stroke With Life Line Screening

Share with Friends

Do you want more years with your family? We’ll show you how to Prevent Cardiovascular Disease and Stroke With Life Line Screening!

Are you over 50 and have you often wondered what you can do to prevent Cardiovascular disease and stroke?

I have, and for an affordable price, Life Line Screenings helps to detect and prevent Cardiovascular disease and strokes.

A few weeks ago they approached me to do this sponsored post since most of my readers are over 50. I wanted my readers to know about this invaluable Cardiovascular disease and stroke prevention service. I travel a lot! Because I am always traveling this would be a fast and efficient way to get the testing I need to stay healthy. 

I feel strongly that this test can save lives as you will read in the testimonial below.

What Is the Lifeline Screening Test?

Life Line Screening’s program is based on the simple idea that preventive health screenings can help people live healthier lives. 

Personally, I know too many folks who are going to their primary care physician but still have not had these life-saving Cardiovascular disease and stroke prevention tests.

Usually, because their insurance will not cover the cost of ultrasounds until it is too late.

As a result, the internal signs of a health issue are missed even though most of the time the test results come back with no issues. 

Preventive screening can identify hidden stroke risk factors like blockages in the carotid arteries as well as atrial fibrillation (an irregular heart rhythm) and high blood pressure.

Screenings can also look for blockages in the small arteries of the legs and feet (Peripheral Arterial Disease) and related conditions like Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm and high cholesterol and elevated glucose.

What Is an Ultrasound Screening?

The screenings look “inside” your body using painless, safe ultrasound to visualize blockages that you can’t see or feel in the early stages, as well as other techniques like finger-stick blood tests.

Finding these hidden risk factors could help you and your doctor take steps to help you avoid a stroke or other serious cardiovascular event altogether.

Life Line’s Screenings focus is on providing information about a person’s health that they might not have known. In addition, it is doing it in a way that makes it easy to share with their doctors.

Once their doctors have their screening report, the physician can work with the patient to determine the next steps as well as put preventive strategies in place.

Great Idea. I’ll Just Ask My Doctor For Them

You would think you could get these screenings through your regular doctor and insurance.

Unfortunately, this is not the case.

While you may get some common blood tests, most insurance does not cover ultrasound tests for those people who are healthy.

Even if they have risk factors such as a strong family history of stroke or cardiovascular disease the tests can be difficult to come by.

While the screenings might seem like a no-brainer, often, the only way to get them is to have a stroke or other serious event. This can be too late, as 80% to 85% of strokes come out of the blue, with no warning mini-stroke beforehand.

** We want to prevent you from having Cardiovascular disease or stroke.

Next Steps to Prevent Cardiovascular Disease or Stroke

You should still ask your doctor first. If you do have any symptoms, he or she may be able to order the tests for you under your insurance.

Without those symptoms, companies such as Life Line Screening offer the tests as a self-pay service.

For those who are not sick, not symptomatic but have risk factors you can get the test. You do not need a doctor referral to make an appointment.

What Happens at a Health Screening?

Click this link to get Life Line Screening offers a package of five screenings for only $149. Common risk factors include age 50 or older, a family history of stroke or other cardiovascular diseases, smoking, diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure) and high cholesterol.

What Tests Are Included in My Health Screening?

Life Line Screening’s package includes five core screenings that you can order today.

  • Ultrasound of the carotid arteries looking for fatty plaque blockages that can build up and block blood flow to the brain.
  • Ultrasound of the abdominal aorta to look for an aneurysm, a ballooning or stretching of the aorta, the largest artery in the body.
  • A check for Atrial Fibrillation (Afib), the most common type of heart rhythm problem. This is also a stroke risk factor. When the heart doesn’t beat properly, blood can pool in the heart. Eventually, these clots are pumped out, where they can travel to the brain and cause a stroke.
  • Peripheral Arterial Disease Screening, which is a check for blockages in the small arteries of the ankles and feet. Blockages here are a warning sign for blockages in other arteries, including the arteries of the heart.***
  • A test for Osteoporosis Risk. This involves an ultrasound of the shinbone (tibia).

Life Line Screening also offers finger-stick blood tests for cholesterol, glucose, a1c, c-Reactive Protein, Thyroid function and more.

Health Screening Results

The good news! Most of the time, people who have the screenings done have normal results. They get peace of mind as a result, but sometimes, the screenings find a serious problem.

Rosanne Burke writes about her father’s experience with the screening and what it meant to her.

“My father passed away at the amazing age of 95. He was still living in his own home, was alert and enjoying his family. He had his screening when he was in his later ‘70’s or maybe early ‘80s and had surgery. I’m sure his Life Line Screening probably saved his life…and added many more years with his family.”*

    Preventive medicine is so important to chronic disease prevention and management. It’s great that there are screening tools available like this for even healthy people. The price tag isn’t that bad either for all that you are getting!

    1. Tricia Snow Avatar

      That was what I liked about it. I have always had a high deductible plan because frankly, we never get sick. At this price point, I am taking control and getting the tests I need at an affordable rate!

    This is a life saving tips Tricia! I wonder if this is covered on our insurance in Canada but regardless though, you really need to get screened. I will keep this info handy and tell my hubby about it.

    What a wealth of information…yet again! Thank you!

    I have had to have tests run due to my primary doctor finding an abnormality in my heart beat. I have a hefty family history on my dad’s side of the family and couldn’t get tests run. Since my primary found the issue, I now get seen by a cardiologist regularly. I wish I had know about this earlier.

    1. Tricia Snow Avatar

      The good news is you are getting in to see a cardiologist! Make sure to share this with your friends!

    It’s amazing that there are options available to PREVENT future problems. I don’t understand why insurance wouldn’t want to pay for preventable measures for all things. My mammogram was covered. Why wouldn’t they cover life line screening? Thanks for sharing!

    1. Tricia Snow Avatar

      That is a great question! Often times employers decide what is to be covered under a health policy. What I like about these tests is accessibility and affordability for all!

  15. Stephanie Dee Avatar

    I can’t believe how many people don’t do regular screenings with their doctors. So many diseases, even fatal ones, can be stopped if they are caught early. Great reminder to go to the doctor!

    1. Tricia Snow Avatar

      I agree, Stephanie! Hopefully, this can make it easier for folks to get tested!

    Great insight! Thanks for sharing some tips to navigate the screening processes.

  17. Heather Avatar

    Such an important topic. In the long run, tests like these will save insurance companies money, so it drives me nuts when tests are not covered. I have never heard of this before. I am going to ask my doctor about it at my next physical. I am 47 but know a few people that have had heart attacks and strokes in their 40s. It is never too early in my opinion.

    1. Tricia Snow Avatar

      I agree, Heather, we have had friends who had an event in their 40’s. Life Line screens almost 700k people a year! It feels good to be working with a company who helps save lives!

    I have seen this advertised and have wondered what was included. I, fortunately, have been able to have much of this incidental to injuries. I broke my ankle several years ago and needed plates and screws. In the course of the surgery/recovery, they monitored my heart and found it to be very slow, so did additional heart screening. Then, during recovery, when I was not moving much, I got a blood clot in my leg (not from a clotting issue… just lack of movement), which then broke loose and went to my lungs. So I had a lot of imaging of blood vessels to check for clots that may have disseminated. The routine blood tests are done at my annual screenings because of family history… cholesterol, diabetes, and kidney function. That slip down the stairs was a long two month journey of one thing after another, but at 57 years old, my physician and surgeon both agreed that I am VERY healthy for my age… except for a broken leg.
    I live with assurance that I am as healthy as I can be, so I can see how the minimal cost of the screening would be quite wonderful to have!

    1. Tricia Snow Avatar

      Wow, you have been through it! I am glad you have had such in-depth testing. Make sure share with those who may need this!

    This is awesome information and thank you so much for sharing. I checked my area and we have screenings in a few weeks at one of our social clubs here. I’m checking with insurance first and if they won’t cover … I’ll make an appointment. I hate being over 50!!! THANK YOU!
