The Proper Preperation Before A Life Line Screening To Ensure The Best Results

Receiving a Life Line Screening is simple, painless, and noninvasive. Only a finger-stick is required for blood screening and an EKG is a simple procedure. You will be comfortable and relaxed during the screening. Life Line uses strict protocols, top of the line equipment, and well trained and qualified staff. The results you receive will be accurate and can help prevent problems before they develop with simple lifestyle changes. There is very little preparation required and some screening require no preparation at all. Certain procedures will require you to fast and others require short sleeves or loose clothing.
