At home Cardiovascular Health Test Kit
Check your cardiovascular risk status and discover how you can improve your diet and lifestyle habits to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Find out more with our Cardiovascular Health test.
Delivery time of your report will be within 2-4 weeks once we receive the samples to our lab.
Your weight, fat distribution and other individual factors could influence significantly your cardiovascular risk. This is so by the changes induced by metabolism on blood vessels and heart muscle. Knowing the metabolites can offer an advantage towards risk attenuation in comparison to classical factors.
- Body Mass Index (BMI)
- Waist Circumference (WC)
- Waist-To-Hip ratio (WHR)
Cholesterol, an otherwise essential component of our cells, when present in high concentrations in blood, has been associated to enhanced cardiovascular risk. However, some metabolites could help to modulate this risk. Knowing them could help you to make informed choices about lifestyle changes affecting blood cholesterol.
- Total cholesterol
- HDL cholesterol
- LDL cholesterol
As with cholesterol, high triglycerides can also increase the risk of having heart disease. Some metabolites are used as markers for further analysing your metabolic risk.
Many individual factors, such as age and lifestyle, including diet and physical activity, finely tune the risk for cardiovascular disease. Metabolites could offer a window to monitor them and therefore adopt changes to minimize this risk and improve your cardio health.
- Smoking habits
- Systolic and diastolic blood pressure
- Metabolic syndrome
- Cardiovascular risk
Diet, through changes in metabolism and in cardiovascular active metabolites and similar biomarkers, could help to modulate your cardio risk. Knowing your circulating metabolites could help you to make healthier, individually tailored choices about your diet amount and quality.
- Caloric intake per day
- Carbohydrates, dietary fibre, protein and fats
- Dietary minerals and vitamins
Your physical activity
Physical activity is a general term, embracing activities leading to energy expenditure. Thus, they affect your metabolism. Plus, physical activity, when adequately managed, help the cardiovascular system to adapt to changes, increasing its fitness. Monitoring metabolites responsible for these changes or representative for them could help you to design and track an individually tailored program for physical activity towards cardiovascular risk attenuation.
