Many physicians—not just internists, family practitioners, and gerontologists but even cardiologists—are unaware that fully 50 percent of patients with heart disease do not have the traditional risk markers.
LDL-C and/or total cholesterol fail to project the full picture. They account for only 25 percent of the risk of premature cardiovascular disease.
Did you know—and do the doctors you deal with know—that fully 60 percent of individuals who have heart attacks or strokes have lipid levels that are normal?
The lipid panel is 40 years old. It’s time to replace it with something updated—and more accurate: advanced lipid testing.
You see, the old-fashioned lipid panel fails to catch three of the most common disorders that can lead to cardiovascular disease…and it doesn’t at all predict stroke.
Our advanced lipid testing is what your physician clients need to be utilizing in assessing their patients for the risk of cardiovascular incident.
