Heart disease is the leading cause of death in men.
It’s often thought of as a disease of old age, but heart disease starts decades before we feel its effects. In a study of 300 deceased soldiers between the ages of 18 to 48, 77% had evidence of heart vessel disease. Another study of more than 2,600 men and women between the ages of 15 to 34 found early onset heart vessel disease that progressed faster and further than expected. This isn’t an “old person’s” disease. It begins when we are young and progresses slowly and silently over time. Modern medicine’s current approach is to wait until you have symptoms before addressing this disease. This is a failing approach, evidenced by the fact that cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death in men.
What is the Heart and Vascular Protocol?
Our Heart and Vascular Protocol is a collection of blood tests, imaging, and diagnostic studies designed to detect the early stages of cardiovascular disease. The goal is to begin proactive preventive treatment before advanced disease sets in. This Protocol is available as part of our Concierge Wellness, Wellness Planning, and Heart & Vascular Plans options.
What’s Included in the Heart and Vascular Protocol?
The Heart and Vascular Protocol includes advanced laboratory biomarkers, computed tomography, and ultrasound diagnostic studies, as well as a comprehensive physical exam. Our strategy employs multiple therapies to address the early stages of cardiovascular disease. We partner with our approved cardiologists for those patients with advanced diseases.
