The time when a simple blood test can determine your health future is here now! Discover your risk for heart disease, diabetes, heart attack and stroke at a genetic level.
Each diagnostic report is custom made to the patient and covers four important diagnostic categories. Those categories include your lipids, the inflammation in your arteries, your metabolics, and your genetics. At the end of your report is a plan for your well-being that will help you to improve your Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) risk factors and improve your test results in the future. The results of your test are broken down into easy to understand diagrams and information.
In your lipids report you will discover where you stand with both good and bad cholesterol. Also included with the lipids report is how your body produces and absorbs cholesterol. This will let you know if you are absorbing too much cholesterol from foods, your liver, or from both sources.
Inflammation of Arteries
Your inflammation report will let you know if the walls of your arteries are inflamed, increasing your risk of CVD. This inflammation can be caused by risk factors such as a poor diet or smoking. The inflammation scars and weakens your artery wall and makes it much easier for cholesterol to attach and cause a blockage. If your artery wall has inflammation there is also a much greater risk of the plaque/blockages on your artery wall breaking off and causing stroke or a heart attack. In this test five different indicators of inflammation will be evaluated.
The metabolics test will help let you know your diabetes risk. The test assesses your 10-year risk of developing diabetes with over 92% accuracy. This is a very important evaluation as 38% of American adults are prediabetic. Diabetes is an important factor in the CVD disease process as 70% of diabetics die of heart disease and another 15% die of a stroke. Having excess sugar crystals in your bloodstream is like having broken glass floating around in your arteries. This can result in your artery walls getting damaged as the sugar crystals can scratch or tear at artery walls. The damaged artery walls will more easily trap cholesterol, resulting in more blockages of the arteries.
The genetics test will give you a tailor made treatment program to help you lower your risk of heart disease. This test will help your healthcare provider know how you may respond to statins. Another important genetic indicator is if you will respond better to lifestyle changes or medication/supplements. The genetic test will also let you know if you have an increased risk of forming blood clots.
Included at the end of your test booklet is the plan for your well-being. This plan takes into account all of the results of your blood test and makes suggestions accordingly. Following the recommendations should dramatically reduce your risk for CVD. The categories covered in the plan include medications, supplements, and lifestyle changes.
If your healthcare provider recommends it you can have a personalized eating and exercise plan created. The eating plan will be created based on your food preferences. This plan will also have an exercise guide with it. You will have access to an online food and exercise journal. According to clinical research weight loss participants lost twice as much weight when they kept of journal of their nutrition and activity.
Why wait until you get sick? Using this Advanced Cardiovascular Risk test you can prevent a heart attack, stroke, or diabetes before it happens to you. Closely adhering to your wellness plan should cause your CVD risk to start dropping in future tests. Using today’s technology you now have unprecedented control over the future of your health.
The best part about this test is that, as preventive medicine the cost will be entirely covered by your insurance provider. Make your appointment for this amazing test today!
