Why Do You Need Cardiometabolic Testing?
The simple answer is: Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death for both men and women. The next answer is: standard cholesterol tests don’t identify ALL risk factors for CVD. Cardiometabolic risk factors are a group of modifiable markers that identify whether or not individuals are at an increased risk for CVD. This includes cardiovascular diseases and conditions such as, myocardial infarction, stroke, peripheral arterial disease, and type 2 diabetes. And, again, standard cholesterol tests can miss that you are at risk for cardiovascular disease. Cardiometabolic testing is designed to evaluate defined risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, progression toward type 2 diabetes, and inflammation.
What is Cardiometabolic Testing?
Revitalogy uses SpectraCell’s CardioMetabolic Test that includes their Advanced Lipoprotein Particle Profile Plus (LPPTM plus), which measures lipoprotein size and density, cardiovascular risk stratification, and also includes triglycerides and traditional cholesterol screening.
How Does it Work?
Each Revitalogy patient who has the cardiometabolic test, is assigned a CardioMetabolic Risk Assessment, which is an indication of your risk for developing cardiovascular disease, including stroke and diabetes. Whether you are at Low, Moderate, or High risk, the test allows you to understand that there is a constellation of risk factors involved with cardiovascular disease. The results of this test allow Revitalogy physicians to provide guidance and/or treatment protocols for reducing your risk for CVD.
What are the Key Components of a Cardiometabolic Risk Panel?
The key components of the SpectraCell CardioMetabolic Risk Panel are listed in the table below:
- Hemoglobin A1c
- Metabolic Syndrome
- SpectraCell’s unique CardioMetabolic Risk Score estimates risk of developing diabetes and associated conditions
- Total Cholesterol
- LDL & HDL Cholesterol
- Non-HD Cholesterol (calc)
Lipoprotein Particle Numbers
- VLDL Particles
- Total LDL Particles
- Non-HDL Particles (RLP, Small, dense LDL III & IV)
- Total HDL Particles
- Large, buoyant HDL 2b
VASCULAR INFLAMMATION MARKERS
- ApoB 100
- C-Reactive Protein-hs
Who Should Take a Cardiometabolic Test?
EVERYBODY should take this test, especially those who:
- have a family history of heart disease or diabetes
- have been diagnosed with heart disease or diabetes
- are already taking cholesterol-lowering medications
- have been diagnosed with Metabolic Syndrome (high blood pressure)
- are overweight
- have high LDL – the bad cholesesterol
- have low HDL – the good cholesterol
- have high triglycerides
