How Doctors Diagnose Hypothyroidism
Sensible Health Life Plans Clarified
My brother who is 2 years younger and also in good health recently had a heart attack due to a blockage. Several people have reported that the Life Line Screening test alerted them to a problem. That makes me think that at least a couple of the screenings are worth it. But that being said as I fall into a risk category being Type 1 diabetic for over 35 years and combined with my family history it is enough of a reason for me to pay $150 so I plan to sign up. However these tests are not “one size fits all” either so any follow up I might do will be with my own Endocrinologist who knows my full history.

The next day the surgeon said the same thing about testing and said he would verify. He walked back in and said they were right and it needed to be addressed. His secretary came in and said he was busy that afternoon but the next day was open.
You can’t prove nor disprove the preventive measures these screenings can provide if in the right hands. Society has gotten used to using the term “cure” for treating symptoms and not the root cause. Besides talking to a doctor who told me to take a nuclear stress test again which I don’t want to , what can I do? Otherwise I feel great, cholesterol, everything is very good. Inova doesn’t pocket anything from the testing; in hemoglobin fact, it pays HealthFair to put the Inova logo on the buses.
