Evaluating your risk for heart disease measured by routine cholesterol testing is not enough. Fifty percent of patients who have experienced heart attacks have “normal” cholesterol levels.
At Ocean Pacific Integrative Health Center, we go beyond the routine cholesterol test to include the most comprehensive cholesterol test and markers of inflammation for a more accurate and complete assessment of your cardiovascular disease risk. The earlier identification of your risk factors will give you a better opportunity to take preventive measures toward a happier and healthy heart.
You may be at risk for heart disease if you have:
The routine cholesterol test only reports 5 lipid components. At Ocean Pacific Integrative Health Center, we offer the Advanced Lipid Panel with additional components to help identify individualized cardiovascular risk factors for earlier detection and treatment in order to prevent the onset and/or progression of cardiometabolic related conditions..
Our Advanced Lipid Panel breaks down cholesterol beyond HDL (high-density lipoprotein, the “good” cholesterol), LDL (low-density lipoprotein, the “bad” cholesterol), and triglycerides and provides new information that can help better assess and treat your heart disease risk. Risks of both Heart Disease and Diabetes can be reduced with the right preventive treatments, which is why more accurate diagnosis is critical.
Comparison of the Advanced Lipid Panel and Routine cholesterol test is summarized below:
|Cholesterol Measurements||Advanced Lipid Panel||Routine Test|
|LDL Particle Number||included|
|LDL – Large||included|
|HDL – Large||included|
|Other Cardiometabolic Risk Biomarkers||included depending on individual risk factor|
In addition to the Advanced Lipid Panel described above, we offer other diagnostic tests which aid in the early identification and treatment of heart disease.This comprehensive cholesterol test is offered at many progressive cardiology centers.
Due to our continued commitment to provide our patients with “the best of conventional and evidence-based natural medicine” and our passion for preventive medicine, these tests are available to you through your insurance plan or at greatly discounted rates that we have negotiated with the Labs.
