Cardiovascular

Cardiovascular disease can be a silent killer. By the time it is diagnosed in traditional clinical practice, patients are typically years into the disease and may be headed towards an acute event, such as a heart attack or stroke. We believe that early risk identification and intervention can help clinicians deliver effective treatment and prevent devastating cardiac events.

Comprehensive Testing

Reveal Early Risk.

There has been a monumental shift in scientific understanding of the role of cholesterol measurement in coronary artery disease. Because research shows that traditional lipid testing often fails to detect cardiovascular disease in its early stages, True Health offers testing beyond the conventional lipid panel.1-4 Our tests include non-traditional lipids, lipoproteins, inflammation, genetic variants, and more. Our aim is to enable earlier disease detection and more targeted treatment, which ultimately helps prevent heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular events.
