Being proactive when it comes to your heart health is critical. Here are just a few reasons why:
- Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women.
- About 610,000 people die of heart disease in the U.S. each year – that’s 1 in 4 deaths.
- In the U.S., someone has a heart attack every 43 seconds.
Perhaps you already get your cholesterol and blood pressure checked on a regular basis, which is good. But did you know that nearly 50 percent of all heart attack victims have normal levels of typical markers for cardiovascular disease, including total cholesterol? More advanced testing is needed to identify a person’s predisposition to cardiovascular disease and who can benefit from preventative intervention. This pH Cardiovascular test looks at inflammation, lipid deposits, endothelial dysfunction, clotting factors, novel independent risk factors and more.
Testing can be customized based on your consultation with a pH doctor, such as adding a cardiovascular nutrition profile and further testing genetic risk factors. The doctor will work with you to get to the root of your issues.
Remember, the earlier a disease is diagnosed, the more likely it is that it can be cured or successfully managed. Managing a disease, especially early in its course, may prevent or delay serious complications.
