Stroke, osteoporosis tests offeredWritten by Mark Hensch | | email@example.com
Life Line Screenings will conduct stroke and osteoporosis screenings at 9 a.m. June 8 at the First Unitarian Church, 3205 Glendale Road. According to a news release, the test will help reduce the risk of strokes and osteoporosis-related bone fractures.
The release said five different screenings were available. The stroke tests search for potential cardiovascular concerns such as blocked arteries, irregular hearth rhythm, abdominal aortic aneurysms and hardening of leg arteries. The osteoporosis exam determines bone density and subsequent fracture risk. All five tests start at $139 and can be taken by men and women. When combined, they average about 60 to 90 minutes. The release said pre-registration for any of the screenings is required.
The release emphasized four critical points about the stroke screenings’ added importance. It said stroke is the third-leading cause of death in America as well as a leading cause of permanent disability. Eighty percent of victims, it said, experienced no warning prior to the stroke. It said that the preventive ultrasound screenings used by Life Line can help people avoid strokes.
