DISEASE RISK FACTORS
LABORATORY TESTING and ANALYSIS. We take a sample of blood or saliva for a battery of laboratory tests.
As the goal is to detect and then follow up with any metabloic abnormalities and/or improve insulin sensitivity or blood pressure, lower serum inflammatory markers, improve levels of vitamins and optimize lipid profile. A baseline profile must be established to which future testing may be compared.
Listed below are major of those laboratory tests that are acting as benchmarks of health.
Just as biochemistry could be assessed and risk factors for disease established, so image of vasculature (blood vessels) and heart can quantify the amount of athererosclerotic disease present. Therefore, to further identify potential disease risk factors, a thorough cardiovascular and pulmonary assessment inclusive of carotid artery screen, echocardiogram, aortic diameter (aneurysm survey), femoral artery peripheral blood flow and pulmonary function is done. Ultrasound technology affords us the ability to not only detect vascular endothelial damage, but quantify and track plaque in presence of peripheral vascular disease (PVD) and/or size of atherosclerotic aneurysm of the abdominal aorta (AAA).
