Did you know that one in three Americans will suffer from some form of cardiovascular disease?
That amounts to over 82,000,000 people in our country who will be affected by some sort of cardiovascular event.
So how do you beat the odds? Many forms of CVD, hypertension, and T2 diabetes can be prevented or treated with healthy lifestyle choices and supplementation or medication if necessary.
Pappas Chiropractic and Functional Diagnostic Center in conjunction with Boston Heart Diagnostics offers a unique approach to assess the 75% residual risk for a CVD (cardiovascular event) that remains after lowering your LDL cholesterol.
Until now, you've probably only had a standard lipid panel which measures the amounts of fatty substances in your blood. This includes a test panel to evaluate your good (HDL-C), bad cholesterol (LDL-C), total cholesterol (TC), and triglycerides (TGs).
However, taking steps to lower your "bad cholesterol" may not be enough to keep your heart healthy.
Did you know that 50% of people who have had a heart attack had normal cholesterol?
Knowledge is power. If you want to take a more active role in prevention of heart disease there are more comprehensive options available to assess your risk.
Utilizing Boston Heart Diagnostics, Dr. Pappas offers proprietary blood testing covering areas such as HDL Mapping and Cholesterol Balancing. Other specialized panels like inflammatory markers and pre-diabetes may be included in the results of your standard lipid profile.
Your blood tests are analyzed in combination with your family history, lifestyle, medications, and existing clinical conditions. Finally, you meet and review your comprehensive risk assessment with Dr. Pappas. He will then advise you on your options.
Did you know that your life expectancy would rise by almost 7 years if all forms of cardiovascular disease were eliminated?
