Do your legs ache after walking a short distance? If so, you may want to consider being screened for peripheral arterial disease (PAD), a condition in which the arteries that carry blood to the arms or legs become narrowed or clogged by plaque, slowing or stopping the flow of blood.
Life Line Screening will bring this preventive health event that can assess one’s risk of PAD through an ankle brachial index (ABI). PAD is closely linked to coronary artery disease, and identifying PAD can also help prevent heart attack and stroke.
Cahaba Valley Elks Lodge is pleased to host a screening on June 2nd, 2009, at their facility located at 1738 Morgan Park Road in Pelham. Your Health is in Your Hands, so call 1-888-653-6441, or visit www.lifelinescreening.com, for more information or to pre-register.
