Cardiovascular disease is the #1 cause of death in men and women in the United States--and is a leading cause of adult disability. Many people have problems with it and have no idea because they are exhibiting NO symptoms. Some cardiovascular patients NEVER have symptoms! The only reason that my pain and fatigue hit me was because I was pregnant. My cardiologists have always told me that had I not had the stress of the pregnancy with Abigayle, I never would have known that I was sick until I woke up DEAD! Scary!
Life Line Screening will be held at the Wichita County Community Building in Leoti on Friday, April 29th. Please put this on your calendar.
The following screenings will be offered:
1. Stroke/Carotid Artery Screening
2. Heart Rhythm Screening (Atrial Fibrillation)
3. Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening
4. Peripheral Arterial Disease Screening
The total cost for all four of these painless screenings with Osteoporosis Risk Assessment is $275.00. You can have all of them done with Life Line for just a total of $159.00 per person.
If a life-threatening condition is found, you will be notified the day of the screening, so that you can contact your doctor immediately. Otherwise, your screening results will be read by one of Life Line's board-certified physicians and given to you within 21 days.
Life Line will only be in Leoti for one day so it is a good idea if you call them right away to set up your appointment. Their toll-free number is 1.800.395.1801.
