Cardiovascular Risk Assessment
The CV Health™ profile is a nutritional test that analyzes blood for lipid markers and independent risk factors leading to cardiovascular disease (CVD). These nutritional markers provide a thorough assessment of cardiovascular health status, revealing the biochemical environment associated with inflammation, lipid deposits, endothelial dysfunction, and clotting factors underlying cardiovascular disease. Using NMR fractionation technology for state-of-the-art lipid markers and independent risk factors, this nutritional test illuminates the complexity of cardiovascular disease (CVD).
The CV Health Profile is a comprehensive nutritional test featuring an advanced lipid profile that utilizes NMR fractionation technology, independent risk markers (including lipoprotein-associated phospholipase or Lp-PLA2), and a novel Insulin Resistance Score. All of these advanced markers play a critical role in the cardiovascular health. The insight they provide allows clinicians to more accurately address abnormalities relating to cardiac and vascular diseases.
Nearly 50% of all heart attack victims have normal levels of typical markers for CVD, including total cholesterol. For this reason, improved clinical tools are needed to identify patients with a predisposition to CVD who can benefit from timely, preventative intervention. With its unique combination of standard lipid markers, lipid fractionation analysis, and novel independent risk factors, the CV Health Profile assists physicians in identifying nearly 85% of individuals at risk for cardiovascular disease.
