Name: LifeLine Screenings for Diabetes
Date: November 21, 2018
Time: 8:30 AM - 6:00 PM EST
Event Description:
November is National Diabetes Month
 
Every 17 seconds someone is diagnosed with diabetes, a disease which kills more people each year than breast cancer and AIDS combined.   The American Diabetes Association’s website states that as many as 1 in 3 American adults will have diabetes in 2050 unless steps are taken to stop this disease.
 
Early detection is critical.
 
This is why Johns Creek Event Center is hosting Life Line Screening, the nation’s leading provider of preventive health screenings on Wednesday, November 21, 2018.      One of the tests is a simple blood test for glucose (sugar) which can determine if a person is at-risk of developing diabetes. 
 
Other screenings include tests to check for blocked carotid arteries, atrial fibrillation, and high blood pressure, which are the three leading risk factors for stroke.  Nearly 800,000 strokes will occur this year, taking a life approximately every four minutes.
 
There are also tests to check for abdominal aortic aneurysms and PAD, also called “hardening of the arteries” in the legs.
 
Diabetes is a major risk factor for stroke and is directly related to Peripheral Arterial Disease.  Recommendations for people with diabetes included a PAD test starting at age 50.
 
Screening packages start at $139. Single tests cost around $70.
