Cardiovascular Profile

FASTING BLOOD TEST

About the Cardiovascular Profile

This profile examines your cardiovascular and inflammatory markers. This provides an in-depth look at your heart function and the levels of inflammation within the body, which can cause serious health challenges if untreated. It is important because all disease begins with inflammation, and when hormonal conditions go untreated  issues can arise with your cardiovascular health and inflammation processes.

Triglyceride Test

A type of fat found in your blood. A high level of these might raise your risk of heart disease and may be a sign of metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is the combination of high blood pressure, high blood sugar, too much fat around the waist, low HDL (“good”) cholesterol, and high triglycerides. It’s very common to see these imbalances in a thyroid patient.

CRP Test (C-reactive protein)

A non-specific test used to detect inflammation if there is a high suspicion of tissue injury or infection somewhere in the body, but the test cannot tell where the inflammation is or what condition is causing it. CRP is not diagnostic of any one condition, but it can be used together with signs and symptoms and other tests to evaluate an individual for an acute or chronic inflammatory condition.

Homocysteine Test

A naturally occurring amino acid produced as part of the body’s methylation process (cellular detox, nervous and immune system function) and is created when methionine is broken down. It can be used to determine if a person has a vitamin B12 or folate (5MTHF) deficiency. High levels can be a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, stroke, blood clots, Alzheimer’s, dementia, declining memory, poor concentration and judgment and lowered mood, difficulty conceiving, risk from repeated early miscarriages, migraines, and those with conditions such as diabetes and osteoporosis. Homocysteine has been shown to play a crucial role as a key marker for disease development and health throughout a person’s life.
