Cardio – Metabolic Testing


Your cellular metabolism and your cardiovascular system (heart and blood vessels) are very intricately linked.  For various reasons – not just age – our metabolism changes.  Our personal chemistry controls these changes and they can be meas whole life: Glycemic Control, Lipid Profile, and Vascular Inflammation.


Cardio Metabolic Test Sample

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death. Standard cholesterol tests can miss that YOU are at risk. This CardioMetabolic test offers a clinically relevant evaluation to help define risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), progression toward Type 2 Diabetes, and inflammation. It includes our labs Advanced Lipoprotein Particle Profile™ Plus (LPPTM Plus), which measures lipoprotein size and density; cardiovascular risk stratification; and also includes triglycerides and traditional cholesterol screening. Each patient is assigned a CardioMetabolic Risk Assessment, which is an indication of your risk (Low, Moderate or High) for developing cardiovascular disease, including stroke and diabetes. In addition, the Type 2 Diabetes Risk Assessment is an estimate of your risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes.  These check points help patients understand that not just one factor, but rather a constellation of risk factors, contribute to the genesis and progression toward poor blood sugar control and/or ASCVD.  Results of testing allow doctors to know when guidance, educational referral, or treatment is necessary.

Key components of the CardioMetabolic Risk Panel are listed below.

Lipoprotein Fractionation
Lipoprotein Particle Numbers
Total LDL Particles
Total HDL Particles
Lipoprotein (a)
Apolipoprotein B
C- Reactive Protein
Hemoglobin A1c

You have already had my cholesterol checked, why should you have the CardioMetabolic test done?

Standard cholesterol testing only gives you part of the picture leaving many people with “normal” cholesterol numbers unaware that they are still at risk for a heart attack.  The National Cholesterol Education Program introduced new risk factors that are responsible for many individuals at risk for cardiovascular disease.

According to the NCEP guidelines, 50% of people who have a heart attack have normal cholesterol levels.

Cholesterol is carried throughout the body in little balls called lipoproteins.  It is the lipoproteins, not the cholesterol in them, that leads to clogging of the arteries.

The Pre-Diabetes Biomarkers identify metabolic abnormalities that may progress into diabetes.  Pre-diabetes is a condition where the body cannot efficiently metabolize foods, especially carbohydrates, resulting in impaired glycemic (blood sugar) control which may progress to diabetes when not properly treated or addressed through lifestyle changes.
