Cardiovascular Risk Assessment
Dr. Heather Boyd-Roberts

One out of two people are now diagnosed as pre-diabetes. 50% of people who have a heart attack have normal cholesterol. For 50% of people the first sign of heart disease is a sudden death heart attack.

The facts make identifying your risks imperative. We uses advanced prognostic indicators to identify your individual risk factors for diabetes, stroke and heart attack and create specialized nutrition protocols based on your specific risks.

I work in conjunction with a laboratory called Cleavand Heart. They provide advanced prognostic indicators for future diabetic risks, insulin resistance, inflammation, arterial plaque development and risks for a future event. A combination of these factors in addition to a Coronary Artery Calcium Score and Carotid Artery Intima Thickness provides information for how aggressive you need to be in your treatment to prevent future cardiovascular events.

Armed with this information you can embark on appropriate nutritional strategies to target the areas that specifically put you at risk and in essence slow the aging process.
