Heart Disease Screening
Great strides continue to be made in understanding the complex development of heart disease. At Life Line Screening, we help detect risk for heart disease by identifying four significant risk factors:
Watch our video now to see how we perform the finger-stick blood screening for heart disease so you know exactly what to expect.
Cholesterol levels have long been believed to contribute to the buildup of plaque in artery walls—a condition known as atherosclerosis. Learn more about cholesterol screening.
Elevated C-reactive protein
C-reactive protein (CRP) is a substance that is released into the blood in response to injury or infection. The role CRP plays in heart disease has only recently been discovered. Find more information about CRP screening and CRP's role as a risk factor for heart disease.
Peripheral arterial disease
Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is also known as hardening of the arteries. The ankle-brachial index (ABI) is used to detect PAD. Find more information about the PAD risk factor for heart disease and what constitutes a PAD screening.
High glucose is a symptom of type 2 diabetes. Learn more about our non-invasive glucose screening.
