Question DetailsAsked on 10/19/2013

Are the Life Line vascular screenings accurate and worth the cost of $150.00

Several times a year I receive a mailing advertising "Life Line Screening". There are 5 vascular tests that supposedly detect potential vascular problems. They are usually conducted in a local church or meeting space. They make no guarantees for accuracy, just a preventative test that may detect a potential problem and will send the report to your doctor. I would like to know if anyone has had experience with this test and if it is worth the cost of $150.00.

The Life Line Screening "Bone Density" test was BOGUS. It put me at "Low Probability" "Low Risk" of Osteoporosis. Not accurate. I knew the reading was wrong because I've been dealing with this for years. A month after that test I had a DXA scan, the medical professional standard, and it read my bones at T-score of -2.4. (For reference, Osteopenia is -1 to -2.5. Osteoporosis, which is worse, is -2.5 and less bone density.)
