Chronic Disease Screen
We see the effect of chronic disease on our families and community. A friend or family member suffers a heart attack or stroke or becomes diabetic or demented. Or it happens to us.
Our goal is to PREVENT AND REVERSE arterial and metabolic disease. That means finding it early and reversing it. Don't just wait to intervene once something has gone wrong. Rescue can save your life, but when seconds count, the ambulance will be here in minutes.
The Center for Prevention developed our Chronic Disease Screen process to show your arterial and metabolic disease to motivate early intervention and disease reversal. The process is noninvasive, quick and inexpensive.
Some elements are similar to the Lifeline Screening program. But we designed our Chronic Disease Screen to be more meaningful for early disease detection and reversal. Given their LIfeline results, many are not told about opportunities to reverse mild to moderate disease. They monitor disease progression, waiting for it to be severe enough to refer you for intervention procedures.
We think this is a missed opportunity to reverse disease before it causes death, disability or the life altering effects of intervention procedures. If you've had a Lifeline Screening, we will review your results with you in a complimentary preconsultation. We provide the plan to reverse chronic disease found on your Lifeline screen!
Our Chronic Disease Screen leads to a plan to reverse chronic arterial disease, Type 2 Diabetes, insulin resistance, hypertension and other lifestyle based chronic disease.
Reversing chronic disease saves lives and reduces costs (financial and human), often dramatically.
Carotid Ultrasound Screen
Ultrasound allows us to look for atherosclerotic plaque in the highly accessible carotid arteries. If plaque is seen, we recommend further detailed assessment using Carotid Intima Media Thickness (CIMT) measurement to quantify the disease and provide a baseline to measure treatment effectiveness.
Body Composition Analysis
The Inbody 570 uses Direct Segmental Multi-frequency Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis to report what you are made of. This gives insight into Insulin Resistance/ Prediabetes/ Type 2 Diabetes as well as signs of other potential health risks. Measurement Motivates and Maintains Momentum to get off the carbs and off the couch.
Atrial Fibrillation Screen
A single lead EKG detects atrial fibrillation. Atrial Fibrillation increases the risk of thromboembolic stroke.
Identifies current treatment, past events, family history and lifestyle issues that contribute to chronic arterial and metabolic disease. Guides recommendations to tailor further assessment recommendations to match risk, complexity and costs.
