This test could save your life.

The Cardio IQ Test can reveal heart disease risks that conventional cholesterol tests miss.

Half of all patients hospitalized for cardiovascular disease have “normal” cholesterol.  Is total cholesterol the enemy? Or are there other forces at work?

Cholesterol Basics

In a standard lipid panel, we test for HDL (the “good” cholesterol), LDL (the “bad” stuff), Triglycerides (fat) and Total Cholesterol. Most treatments take into account the lipid panel, blood pressure and your age. The Framingham Index is the tool many doctors use when prescribing treatment.

But what about the 50% of heart patients who have “normal” numbers? Certainly there are other factors at play.

The Cardio IQ Panel Goes Beyond the Basics

One factor is the size and number of the cholesterol particles. As a somewhat simplistic explanation, small ones are more likely to get stuck in the walls of your blood vessels. Larger ones don’t. The Cardio IQ Panel will measure your particle sizes.
