One way to monitor what is going on with your arteries is to have a vascular screening, which can aid in the early detection of vascular disease. This can be helpful, as many vascular diseases do not have noticeable symptoms as warning signs. As the conditions for which these tests screen tend to be silent in the early stages, there can be benefits to screening when you are at risk. The good news is that there are hospitals and private companies that offer the screenings in the community at low cost and sometimes for free.
Ask your health care provider about local health fairs and other free or low-cost screening events in your community.
