Cardiovascular and Pre-Diabetes Testing

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death. Standard cholesterol tests can miss that YOU are at risk. Poor blood sugar regulation and unhealthy triglyceride and lipoprotein levels often present long before the diagnosis of type 2 Diabetes

Your cellular metabolism and your cardiovascular system (heart and blood vessels) are very intricately linked. For various reasons – not just age – your metabolism changes. Your personal chemistry controls these changes and they can be measured in Vitawells CardioMetabolic panel, which covers the three main areas of keeping a healthy metabolic profile your whole life: Glycemic Control, Lipid Profile, and Vascular Inflammation

Vitawells CardioMetabolic and Pre-Diabetes testing offers definitive diagnostic and clinically relevant evaluation data to help you to define the risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) and progression toward type 2 diabetesThese check points along with an overall pre-diabetes risk score, help you to understand that not just one factor, but rather a constellation of risk factors, contribute to the genesis and progression toward poor blood sugar control and/or ASCVD

Results of testing will allow you to take the analysis to your doctors for guidance, educational referral, or treatment if necessary

Key components of Vitawells CardioMetabolic Risk Panel are:

You should take the test if you have a family history of heart disease or diabetes, have been diagnosed with heart disease or diabetes, are already taking cholesterol-lowering medications, have been diagnosed with Metabolic Syndrome (high blood pressure), are overweight, have high LDL – the bad cholesesterol, have low HDL – the good cholesterol or have high triglycerides

The Pre-Diabetes Biomarkers identify metabolic abnormalities that may progress into diabetes. Pre-diabetes is a condition where the body cannot efficiently metabolize foods, especially carbohydrates, resulting in impaired glycemic (blood sugar) control which may progress to diabetes when not properly treated or addressed through lifestyle changes

Vitawells Pre-Diabetes Risk Score is a way to estimate your risk of developing diabetes and associated complications such as heart disease or stroke

We test for:-
Hemoglobin A1c – long term (2-3 months) marker of Glycemic control, also considered to be a marker of accelerated aging
Fasting blood sugar
Metabolic syndrome traits
Glucose – snapshot of blood sugar at time of blood draw
Insulin – correlates to the efficiency with which you can metabolize carbohydrates, high fasting levels indicate insulin resistance and possible pre-diabetes
C-peptide – a measure of endogenous insulin production; useful in distinguishing between type 1 and type 2 diabetes
Adiponectin – a hormone that ezymatically controls metabolism, high levels beneficial and indicate efficient cellular energy production
Metabolic syndrome traits – A diagnosis of metabolic syndrome is confirmed if any three of the following six traits exist in a patient: (1) high triglycerides (2) high glucose (3) low HDL (4) high blood pressure (5) high waist circumference or (6) increased small dense LDL

The CardioMetabolic Risk Panel is the test that could save your life. Results are normally received within 3 weeks of blood sample testing

Both the above Pre-Diabetes and CarioMetablic tests are taken from just one blood sample by our resident Phlebotomist and sent on to our dedicated laboratory partner in the UK
