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 Testing
Heart disease refers to a variety of conditions that affect the heart—from infections to genetic defects and blood vessel diseases. Most heart disease can be prevented with a healthy lifestyle, yet it’s the number-one health threat in the world, so it’s important that your know your cardiovascular numbers. Vibrant America offers the most relevant tests available to assess your risk or for monitoring current conditions.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women, and compared to men, women are just as likely to have a heart attack. However, more women than men die from heart disease each year and women are more likely than men to die after their first heart attack.
HEART DISEASE RISK FACTORS
- High LDL cholesterol
- High blood pressure/hypertension
- Diets high in saturated fats and cholesterol
- Physical inactivity
- Excessive alcohol use
- Family history
CARDIOVASULAR / LIPID PROFILE ITEMS TESTED
Total serum cholesterol analysis is useful in the diagnosis of hyperlipoproteinemia, atherosclerosis, hepatic and thyroid diseases, as well as the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
HDL (the “healthy” or “good” cholesterol) is inversely related to the risk for cardiovascular disease. It increases following regular exercise, moderate alcohol consumption and with oral estrogen therapy. Decreased levels are associated with obesity, stress, cigarette smoking and diabetes mellitus.
LDL is the “bad” cholesterol. Even within the normal range of total cholesterol concentrations, an increase in LDL cholesterol can produce an associated increased risk for cardiovascular disease. LDL cholesterol binds to receptor sites on macrophages in blood vessel walls inciting several changes to the blood wall which enhance atherosclerotic plaque development.
Triglycerides are fats from the food we eat that are carried in the blood. Most of the fats we eat, including butter, margarine and oils, are in triglyceride form. Excess calories, alcohol or sugar in the body turn into triglycerides and are stored in fat cells throughout the body. This test will measure the amount of triglycerides in the blood.

Know Your Numbers!
Every year, about 600,000 people die of heart disease in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That is about 1 out of every 4 deaths. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women.
