Cardiovascular Health

When it comes to heart health, lipoprotein particle size and numbers tell the real story.  

 Lipoprotein Particle testing will help answer the following:

  • What is your risk of a heart attack?
  • Is it likely you have healthy arteries, or likely they are clogged with plaque?
  • How inflamed are you?
  • Are certain detoxification systems working in your body?

Who should take this test?

All patients, and especially those who:

  • Have a family history of heart disease or diabetes
  • Are already taking cholesterol-lowering medications
  • Are overweight
  • Have high LDL - the bad cholesterol
  • Have low HDL - the good cholesterol
  • Have high triglycerides

 

I've already had my cholesterol checked, why should I have the CardioMetabolic test done?

 50% of people who have a heart attack have normal cholesterol levels.

Standard cholesterol testing only gives you part of the picture leaving many people with "normal" cholesterol numbers unaware that they are still at risk for a heart attack.  The National Cholesterol Education Program introduced new risk factors that are responsible for many individuals at risk for cardiovascular disease.

 

You can change your personal metabolism and cardiovascular health – for good or bad – and simple blood tests from SpectraCell help you do it.

Are you ready to take control of your cardiovascular health?

WHAT WE MEASURE

  • “SpectraCell Micronutrient Test is a unique, scientifically-based nutrient evaluation of specific deficiencies that allows for targeted treatment. The detection of micronutrient deficiencies using this test offers a functional and biochemically unique approach to the prevention and treatment of many diseases in which the root cause originated with nutritional deficiency and subsequent downstream of cellular dysfunction and illness.”

  • "As an interventional cardiologist and electrophysiologist dedicated to the advancement of cardiovascular health, I have come to appreciate the need for individualizing our approach to patient care. I have relied heavily upon SpectraCell's Micronutrient Test for the better part of the last decade. It gives me the ability to treat patients on a targeted and individualized level, thus eliminating the guesswork."
