Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) includes heart attacks (myocardial infarctions), stroke, and peripheral arterial disease. CVD is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. If you are obese, have insulin resistance or Diabetes (DM2) you may be significantly predisposes to developing CVD, but these conditions are potentially avoidable. If you identify your risk early enough to make lifestyle modifications or seek medical help, you can avoid becoming a part of these rising statistics.
Your blood spot samples will test: Insulin (I), High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hsCRP), Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), Triglycerides (TG), LDL Cholesterol (LDL), HDL Cholesterol (HDL), VLDL Cholesterol (VLDL), and Total Cholesterol (CH) levels.
You may want to consider this test if you suffer from:
- Hypertension/elevated blood pressure
- Abdominal obesity
- Low HDL cholesterol, elevated triglycerides, elevated LDL cholesterol
- Insulin resistance/glucose intolerance
- Aches and pains
- Frequent infections
- Signs of Vitamin D deficiency
