Early Detection of Health Issues for Better Health

Life Line Screening is committed to giving health knowledge for individuals to live healthy lifestyles. It offers services that are affordable, reliable, and effective. Life Line Screening partners with doctors to identify health conditions early enough for a better lifestyle. It provides community- based screening events with highly trained licensed healthcare professionals.

Screening centers are found all over the U.S in places of worship, senior centers, and in corporate buildings. Screening mostly identifies risks such as stroke, abdominal aortic aneurysm, carotid artery diseases and much more which mostly do not show signs and symptoms. Screenings are not only painless but also safe, and when these issues are detected early, they can be managed for the patient to live a healthy life. The trained technicians use quality pieces of equipment found in hospitals and the results are shared with patient’s physicians. This helps to give necessary treatment, and the lifestyle of the individual is enhanced.

The organization also provides resources like the Life Line Screening Health E-Newsletter that assists people to focus on wellness efforts. Whoever wishes to change lifestyle by making healthy choices and avoid diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes and others should be screened by Life Line Screening experts.

Life Line Screening uses three types of preventive health screening. The first one is ultrasound screenings which is a technique that uses sound waves to picture the structures in the body. Sound waves which are of high frequency are transmitted to the specific body part, and the echoes are recorded. It gives reliable images that are used to prescribe the appropriate treatment.

The second preventive health screening is the finger-stick blood screenings which are conducted by pricking the soft pad of the fingers using FDA that is approved and accurate. A few drops of blood are taken and this procedure helps in the screening of complete lipid panel, glucose screening, high sensitivity C-reactive protein, and elevated liver enzymes. The final preventive health screening is the limited electrocardiograph which is used to detect the irregular heartbeat, a common condition that increases the risk of stroke. Life Line Screening offers these and more services that will improve your health.

Tall Men Less Likely to Develop Heart Disease Than Short Men

My best friend Crystal Hunt mentioned a popular song from several years back declared that short people have no reason to live. They do, if for no other reason than to prove to tall people they can do it. According to recent research, a short man will have to try harder than a tall man to live a long life, but it can be done.
Decades of research have shown that taller men earn more money than shorter men, have a wider selection for mates and are literally and figuratively looked up to. The latest good news for tall men is that they are less likely to develop heart disease than short men. No one knows why, but theories are being tested and answers being researched.
It was originally thought that since short men have smaller arteries there is a greater chance of those smaller arteries becoming clogged with plaque, which in turn would cause a heart attack. However, if that theory were true, it would hold true for women who are typically smaller and shorter than men. The smaller artery theory did not pan out so other issues are being researched to discover the answer.
The study showed that for every two and half inches in height, a man has a 13.5 less chance of developing heart disease. How that works remains to be discovered.
