Is it possible to test for and catch diseases such as stroke, aortic aneurysms, Peripheral Vascular Disease, and osteoporosis before they have a chance to progress? Yes. Dr. Andrew Manganero worked as a surgeon for many years before he started Life Line Screening over a decade ago. Since it’s beginnings, the company has sought to improve the screenings offered for individuals, and integrate preventative healthcare into individual’s treatment plans.
Medical testing is a constantly evolving field. Dr. Andrew Manganaro has invested in scientific research since founding LLS, and says that it is important to stay abreast of scientific literature. Life Line Screening is currently the United States largest vascular screening company, and has tested over 8 million people as of May 2017. These numbers are growing and the tests available are expanding as well, as new research becomes available and more information click here.
The tests provided by LLS for individuals vary depending on the patients needs and risks. Currently the range of screening includes non-invasive ultra-sound of the arteries and abdominal aorta. The team can also take a measurement of the ankle brachial index(the ratio of the blood pressure at the ankle to the blood pressure in the arm) in order to screen for Peripheral Vascular Disease. EKG’s are offered to screen for atrial fibrillation, which can lead to stroke. In some of their offices, LLS also offers blood screening that can identify important risk factors for diabetes. Dr. Manganaro said recently that the screenings now include respiratory health indicators: “We have also recently added a set of screenings for patients concerned about their respiratory status” and learn more about Lifeline Screening.
Through out his career, Dr. Manganaro has promoted the idea that prevention and living a wellness lifestyle is where healthcare should start. He saw many patients who had advanced into complex stages of diseases, as a surgeon. Those diseases could have been slowed down or stopped had the patient received attention earlier on. Some diseases are asymptomatic, and will progress undetected if the appropriate test is not done. Dr. Manganaro is bringing the possibility for early detection to his clients. This changes the way the disease progresses and Lifeline Screening’s lacrosse camp.
