Learn How Your Diet and Genes Impact Blood Vessel Health
Blood vessel health has been well-studied and we know that various cholesterol markers are major contributors. We can optimize blood vessel health through excellent nutrition and conversely, we can accelerate the aging of the arteries by eating poorly, smoking, avoiding exercise or not understanding and treating our genetic risk. We recommend the blood vessel health module to measure your baseline markers and genetic predisposition. If your parents had problems with their cholesterol markers, you likely are going to have the same issues. The trick here is how much we can optimize your markers with natural methods.

Elevated or decreased levels of specific biomarkers are associated with increased risk for developing atherosclerosis. The goal of treatment is to modify or eliminate these risk factors. In general, more aggressive treatment is undertaken when multiple biomarker risk factors are present and when risk factors are significantly out of range.
The use of blood-based biomarkers for atherosclerosis is not new, but generally falls short by not going far enough. Historically, doctors measured total cholesterol (TC) to determine cardiovascular risk. Then clinical science demonstrated that there are different types of cholesterol-rich particles and this led to the measurement of low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) and triglyceride (TG) levels. While these measurements have been helpful, we now know that there is even more to the cholesterol story. Additional research has shown a whole constellation of biomarkers based on cholesterol particle type, particle number, particle density, and their interaction with plaque formation that leads to plaque build-up and eventually narrows the blood vessel. We have incorporated all of these biomarkers into this panel to give you a better picture of your risk and likely extent of atherosclerosis. (Remember, it’s not just about the heart – this disease also affects the vessels of the kidneys, the brain, and virtually every other organ).
In most healthy people, the Blood Vessel Health Module should be evaluated annually. If abnormalities are noted in the module it is recommended that the module be repeated in 3 months after intervention to assess for improvement.
