Who Should Take the Heart Health Test
- Individuals who have been diagnosed with heart disease
- Those who are diabetic
- Adults on medication for elevated cholesterol or diabetes
- Individuals with high blood pressure
- Those at risk for diabetes or heart disease
- Individuals diagnosed with metabolic syndrome
To help assess cardiometabolic health, various lipids, proteins, lipoproteins, and hormones are measured.
Insulin helps facilitate glucose transport to the cells. Insulin resistence can occur, when glucose cannot easily enter cells. This can place individuals at a higher risk for heart related conditions.
High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein is found in the blood in cases of inflammation, infection, heart attack, and trauma to the body. Hs-(CRP) has been linked to atherosclerosis, a narrowing of blood vessels that causes cardiovascular disease.
Hemoglobin A1c measures blood glucose that is attached to red blood cells known as hemoglobin. Levels are measured over a three-month period and averaged. High levels of HBA1c are associated with diabetes and heart disease.
Total cholesterol tests for all cholesterol found in the blood including both LDL (low-density cholesterol) and HDL (high-density cholesterol). Cholesterol is necessary for all cells in the body and is a waxy, fat-like substance.
HDL (high-density lipoprotein) is considered “good” cholesterol.
LDL (low-density lipoprotein) is referred to as “bad” cholesterol
The triglyceride level test helps measure the amount of triglycerides in your blood. Triglycerides are a type of fat, or lipid, found in the blood. The results of this test help your doctor determine your risk of developing heart disease. Another name for this test is a triacylglycerol test.
Very-low-density lipoprotein is made by the liver where it is then released into the bloodstream. VLDL transports triglycerides to the tissues.

- Pressure or discomfort in the chest
- Pain that radiates through the arm
- Jaw pain
- Extreme fatigue
- Swelling in the legs/feet

- Problems with vision
- Elevated cholesterol or triglyceride levels
Cardiometabolic Health FYI
Cardiometabolic syndrome is a cluster of symptoms or conditions that put the body at risk for heart disease, stroke, diabetes, or heart attack. Fats known as lipids found in the blood can cause arterial blockage to the heart and brain. Elevated glucose levels can contribute to high blood pressure, liver inflammation and the weakening of nerves and blood vessels. While not every individual will have all risk factors, even one of these can contribute to a serious heart health issue.
