Refiner’s Fire Ministries

Residents living in and near Ennis can be screened on Oct. 6 to reduce their risk of having a stroke or heart attack.
The screenings are part of a visit from Life Line Screening at the Refiner’s Fire Ministries International.
Recommended baseline screenings include Stroke/Carotid Artery, Atrial Fibrillation, Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm and Peripheral Arterial Disease. The Carotid Artery screening uses ultrasound to identify blockages in the arteries in your neck, a leading cause of stroke. The Atrial Fibrillation screening checks for an irregular heartbeat and the Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm screening looks for a ballooning of the largest artery in the body. Screening for Peripheral Arterial Disease checks for blockages in the arteries of the arms and legs, a condition that leaves the individual at four to fives times higher risk of heart disease.
Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of both men and women in the United States.
Additional screenings can be added for a more comprehensive risk assessment and include C-Reactive Protein, a blood marker for vascular disease and diabetes, complete Lipid Panel including HDL/LDL and total cholesterol, Glucose, a measure of blood sugar level which can determine your risk for diabetes and an ultrasound screening for Osteoporosis.
Any four screenings cost $140. All eight screenings cost $199.
For more information about the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-800-643-6188. Pre-registration is required.
Refiner’s Fire Ministries International is located at 1611 W. Ennis Ave. Appointments will begin at 10 a.m.
