Advanced Lipid Testing
Beyond Cholesterol Testing

Cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of death in modern society. Yet in more than 50% of cases, the first sign of Cardio-Vascular (CV) disease is sudden death from heart attack or stroke!!!

Functional medicine utilizes advanced lipid testing to more accurately assess risk for CV disease events.  In fact,  advanced lipid testing has been shown to reduce health care costs by up to 40%! Unfortunately , standard lipid testing only shows a small part of the whole picture.  Standard lipid panels cannot accurately measure the HDL (good) cholesterol or the LDL (bad) cholesterol, but instead only provide calculated estimates of cholesterol in the body.  Most importantly,  standard lipid panels cannot estimate the risk of   blood vessel rupture, caused by cholesterol plaque build up in arteries.

Advanced Results
  • Estimates unstable arterial plaque at risk of rupture
  • Measures inflammation and oxidative stress in the body
  • Identifies genetic risks for blood clotting
  • Measures cholesterol production, and gut absorption  of cholesterol in the body
  • Measures omega3-fatty acid (fish/krill oil) in blood, which if optimal, reduces risk of CV Disease
