Health Conditions Targeted By Life Line Screening's Chronic Disease Prevention Program

The Life Line Screening Chronic Disease Prevention Program begins with screenings that can help identify the risk for chronic diseases. Early identification is key, so that treatment can begin before serious health conditions develop

Atherosclerotic: A buildup of fatty plaque that can be the result of high cholesterol as well as high blood pressure, smoking, infection. Atherosclerosis can lead to heart disease.

Chronic Disease Prevention Program: Stroke Stroke: When the carotid arteries become blocked with plaque (atherosclerotic plaque), blood flow to the brain is compromised.
Chronic Disease Prevention Program: Peripheral Arterial Disease Peripheral Arterial Disease: Plaque buildup in the legs, PAD is a strong predictor of heart disease and frequent complication of diabetes. Arteries become narrow and blood flow decreases.
Chronic Disease Prevention Program: Atrial Fibrillation Atrial Fibrillation: An irregular or rapid heartbeat. Individuals with Afib are 5 times more likely to suffer a stroke. Afib impacts 5.1 million people in US.
Chronic Disease Prevention Program: Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: The abdominal aorta is the largest blood vessel in the body, when vessel walls weaken in the abdominal area ruptures can occur, with a 80-90% mortality rate.
Chronic Disease Prevention Program: Osteoporosis Osteoporosis: is a bone disease caused by more bone calcium being reabsorbed than being deposited, causing bones to be more porous therefore more vulnerable to fracture. 8 million women and 2 million men have Osteoporosis in the US.
Chronic Disease Prevention Program: Diabetes Type 2 Diabetes: The most common form of diabetes. Millions of Americans have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and many more are unaware they are at high risk. Some groups have a higher risk for developing type 2 diabetes than others.

Chronic Disease Prevention Program: COPD COPD: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a progressive disease that makes it hard to breathe. "Progressive" means the disease gets worse over time. COPD is a major cause of disability, and it's the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. More than 12 million people are currently diagnosed with COPD. An additional 12 million likely have the disease and don't even know it.

Chronic Disease Prevention Program: Heart Disease Coronary Heart Disease: Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a narrowing of the small blood vessels that supply blood and oxygen to the heart. CHD is also called coronary artery disease. Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the leading cause of death in the United States for men and women.

Prostate Cancer: is the most common non-skin cancer in America, affecting 1 in 6 men. There are several major factors that influence risk, some of them unfortunately cannot be changed such as age, family history, ethnicity.

Thyroid Disease: Millions of people in the U.S. have thyroid diseases. Most of them are women. If you have a thyroid disease, your body uses energy more slowly or quickly than it should. A thyroid gland that is not active enough, called hypothyroidism, is far more common. It can make you gain weight, feel fatigued and have difficulty dealing with cold temperatures.
