A standard lipid panel alone may not predict your true risk for cardiovascular disease. Recent studies show that lowering your LDL cholesterol reduces your risk for a cardiovascular event by only 25 percent, and at least half of people who have experienced a cardiac event had cholesterol levels in the “normal” range.
To gain a more comprehensive look at their risk, we recommend advanced, specialized testing for some patients, particularly those with risk factors, to evaluate lipids, inflammation, metabolics and genetics.
This life-saving investment includes a 15-minute CIMT Ultrasound in our office which can detect a cardiovascular problem long before it creates symptoms in the body, as well as a 60-minute follow up consultation to interpret the test and assess cardio risk factors including genetics, lifestyle, nutrition, environment, stress, etc... Appointments are made in 15 minutes intervals between 8am and 12pm. Click here for upcoming dates.
