What to Wear and Eat prior to a Life Line Screening Procedure and What to Expect during the Screening

Chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, and heart diseases, are among the top causes of death in the United States. The sad reality is that they are detected in the body too late to administer treatment. Regular screening ensures that such diseases are caught before they become serious to cause harm. It is proven that treatments work best at the early stages of the diseases. The screenings also act as a preventive measure since they can tell if a person is at risk of contracting any disease. Life Line Screening is equipped with the latest technology to perform different types of screening.

What to Wear

Life Line Screenings requires patients to be prepared before the start of the procedure. The preparations include having the right clothing that does not interfere with the process. Carotid artery disease screening that detects stroke requires one to wear a short-sleeved shirt that is open at the collar. Artificial fibrillation that also checks for stroke requires a patient to wear two-piece loose clothing. Patients are also required not to wear a watch or pantyhose and not to apply oil. The same clothing goes for the abdominal aortic aneurysm, 6 for life package and ankle-brachial index.

What to Eat

Some screenings require a patient to eat the right of food or to abstain from eating for specified hours. The abdominal aortic aneurysm requires four hours fast prior to the procedure. Alternatively, one can eat a light meal that is non-greasy. Diabetic patients should, however, follow their diabetic meal plan and medication. Complete lipid panel, 6 for life package and glucose screenings requires 12 hours fast. Only water and medication are allowed during the fast.

What to Expect

Some of the Life Line Screening procedures are non-invasive and painless. After checking in and completing the paperwork, patients are then taken to meet the physicians. The procedures require patients to follow simple instructions as directed by the doctor. They will do a blood test that involves a small prick to draw a few drops of blood. The measurements of weight and height will then be taken. Procedures like bone density screening will require the patient to place a bare foot on the ultrasound machine for a few minutes. The peripheral arterial disease screening involves checking the systolic pressure in the limbs. The process will involve pressure cuffs placed around the arm, ultrasound device and electrodes. Other procedures such as carotid artery and abdominal aortic aneurysm screening require patients to lie on their back.

Starbucks Adds Popular Hippeas Chickpea Puffs to its Grab-and-Go Snacks

Successful entrepreneur and innovator, Livio Bisterzo, set out in 2015 to make a revolutionary snack that was vegan, kosher, gluten-free, full of calories, and a game changer in the global snacks sector. True to his word, his company Green Park Brands launched the nutrient-rich Hippeas, in 2016, to a warm market reception.

Bisterzo said that his team worked hard to come up with a healthy and tasty snack. They targeted the socially conscious millennial consumers who not only loved delicious snacks but were keen on maintaining a healthy diet. Today, Hippeas is one of Starbucks’ Grab-and-go snacks thanks to its increasing popularity. What’s more, two of Hippeas’ flavors, Far Out Fajita and Vegan White Cheddar, are now available in over 7,500 Starbucks locations countrywide.

Speaking about Hippeas and its creation, Bisterzo said that his company wanted to use chickpeas as the primary ingredient because of its numerous healthy properties. The production team worked tirelessly to acquire the right shape, texture, and taste. He added that Green Park Brands (www.greenparkbrands.com) wanted Hippeas to stand out from the rest and be culturally relevant to resonate with the target consumers. He reiterated that customers come fast, and satisfying them is the secret to a successful product.

Hippeas is branded and packed in a bright and colorful yellow packaging to be attractive to customers while on the shelves. This has reduced the shelve life of the snacks. Thanks to its success, Hippeas has decided to give back to society by partnering with Farm Africa to support Eastern Africa’s chickpeas farmers. Bisterzo said that he couldn’t be happier with the success of Hippeas.

Sweetgreen: A Story of Passion, Caring, and Success

As with many startups, the founders are committed, hardworking, and very disciplined. Such is the case with Nicolas Jammet, Jonathan Neman, and Nathaniel Ru, the founders of Sweetgreen. The Bloomberg article about the stunning success of these three entrepreneurs showcases the drive and determination of these men, and their desire to provide a better, and healthier product that apparently, everyone wants. The group, together as students at Georgetown University, was growing tired of the campus food offerings, and while looking for better food elsewhere struck on the idea of opening their own restaurant. So, in 2007 with the funding help of some 40 friends and relatives, that’s just what they did. The rest, as they say, is history. What started out as a desire to find better food to eat has now blossomed into a chain of 43 restaurants, with more scheduled to open soon. Sweetgreen offers a menu of food that is grown by farmers sourced by Sweetgreen who use only organic, local, and antibiotic-free cheese and poultry. The company emphasizes simpler recipes that feature natural flavors with natural sweeteners such as honey and agave for a finishing touch.


Thanks to several rounds of venture capital funding, they were able to realize their goal of expansion. Their business plan consisted of selling a dream, and focusing on the outcome, which by all accounts was the key to their success. Other intangibles are the group’s innate ability to make the right decisions and then knowing when to act on them. Nathaniel Ru, one of Sweetgreen’s co-founders and co-CEOs, speaks of passion and purpose in his restaurants. This passion that drives the company’s success is part of a shared bond of entrepreneurship that all three founders shared from the beginning, and today, they remain the best of friends.


Mr. Ru also talks of how the use of technology enhances their operational efficiency to keep everyone connected at all times. Due to his busy travel schedule, Mr. Ru relies on technology to maintain the close relationships between his employees and the principals of the company, which adds to the company culture of teamwork. Perhaps a main reason why the company’s vision is centered around teamwork and values is because all three founders are the children of entrepreneurs themselves. From that beginning not so long ago, a dream is now a reality for these three men. They’re creating magic among their employees, too. Mr. Ru and his partners are dedicated to their employees and they’ve structured the company in such a way that if someone leaves the company, they want to know why. The relationships between their farmers are just as important, as well as with the app developers. It’s obvious to even a casual observer that Mr. Ru and his partners have something special in Sweetgreen, and they’re happily changing how and what people eat. More importantly, the level of happiness and productivity among Sweetgreen’s employees may someday set a new standard for employers everywhere to follow.
