ASSESS YOUR HEART ATTACK RISK

Understanding cardiovascular disease is more complex than a series of blood tests. Many doctors attribute issues to genetics rather than delving into the nature of your cardiovascular disease.

Genetics may be a factor, but numerous other issues could be at play.

Is a Heart Attack in Your Genes!

Did you know that the 9P21 gene is inherited by 25% or more of the population from both parents, leading to a 400% increased risk of cardiovascular disease and double the likelihood of death from a heart attack within the next 10 years?

Most doctors won’t invest the time to analyze a comprehensive list of factors like blood work, genetics, periodontal disease risk, ultrasounds, sleep, and diabetes to assess your cardiovascular disease risk.

Pills Might Not Fix the Issue.

Following a heart attack, most doctors prescribe blood pressure meds, blood thinners, cholesterol medication (like a statin), and send you on your way.

But if the root cause remains unknown, there’s a risk of another heart attack, so pills might not fix the underlying issue.

The 10 Minute Ultrasound to Save Your Life

There’s a quick 10-minute ultrasound that evaluates your risk for a first heart attack. If you’ve had a heart attack, this test measures artery plaque progression and the likelihood of another heart attack. Surprisingly, it’s not commonly conducted in the Canadian healthcare system.

 

At RenewLife, we evaluate your heart attack risk by examining nearly 20 different markers to assess the risk of a heart attack or the likelihood of recurrence.
