Heart Health Tests
Nearly 50% of all heart attack victims have normal levels of traditional early warning markers for cardiovascular disease (CVD), including total cholesterol. For this reason, improved clinical tools are needed to identify patients with a predisposition to CVD who can benefit from timely, preventative intervention. The Comprehensive Cardiovascular Risk Assessment measures state-of-the-art, independent markers that illuminate the clinical complexity of CVD.
Both of the cardiovascular tests we offer are comprehensive whereas the CV Health Profile test is much more specialised, this test will usually fulfil must peoples needs.
The Comprehensive Cardiovascular Health Test analyses blood for lipid markers, ratios, and independent risk factors. Together, these markers provide a thorough assessment of cardiovascular health status, revealing the biochemical environment associated with inflammation, lipid deposits, endothelial dysfunction, clotting factors and other primary mechanisms underlying cardiovascular disease.
The Specialised Cardiovascular Health Test is the most comprehensive of the cardiovascular tests that we offer and should only be used if you are looking for an in depth analysis of specific cholesterol levels and also markers associated with insulin resistance. This test analyzes blood for state-of-the-art lipid markers and independent risk factors that illuminate the clinical complexity of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Together, these markers provide a thorough assessment of cardiovascular health status, revealing the biochemical environment associated with inflammation, lipid deposits, endothelial dysfunction, and clotting factors underlying cardiovascular disease.
