Cardiovascular Disease Assessment

Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in the United States and it is not just a problem for men.  Nearly every minute, one woman dies from cardiovascular disease.  It is preventable, so take the time to get your risk for heart disease assessed here at our lab.

Heart and metabolism issues are the precursor to serious conditions such as type 2 diabetes, stroke, inflammation, and cardiovascular disease.  For this reason, we want you to get your cardiometabolic lab test to ensure you’re not at risk.  Cardiometabolic testing goes beyond the basics.  Don’t be satisfied with a rudimentary cholesterol test from your doctor that never even gets reviewed.  Take time with our doctors and dig into the details. 

Want to know if you are consuming too much olive oil or canola oil?  Or maybe you think you eat enough fish to have healthy levels of Omega 3s?  Our OmegaCheck can take away the guess work and provide you with actual values.  But that’s just the tip of the information iceberg. We’ll also test for inflammation in your blood vessels and numerous other markers that will indicate your overall cardiovascular health.

In addition to the cardiac results, testing for prediabetes (progression towards type 2 diabetes) is one of the most beneficial aspects of getting a cardiometabolic panel done.  Type 2 diabetes is a serious disease that in extreme cases can lead to limb amputation and diabetic coma.  With your test results, a physician can come up with a plan for lifestyle changes and treatments that will keep your risk of complications low.

Here are some signs of prediabetes (note the disease can also develop silently without these signs):

  • Increased thirst
  • Frequent urination
  • Fatigue
  • Blurry vision
  • Slow healing wounds

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms it is important that you get tested right away.  Even if you are not showing these signs, it is still a good idea to be checked out as roughly one third of people with type 2 diabetes don’t even know they have it.
