Even with tremendous resources devoted to cardiovascular diseases, assessment and management over the past 60 years it remains the most prevalent disorder in the developed countries.
As clinicians, we recognize that cardiometabolic dysfunction is a leading cause of illness among our patients. But understanding the most common lab tests and risk factors is only part of the story. Understanding the biochemical and systems-biology interactions that underlie the health of the arterial walls, the lipid components in the blood, and the blood glucose balance is critical to tailoring treatments and restoring patients to wellness.
One example of a factor in cardiometabolic health that few doctors so far understand is the gut microbiome. Recently, the microbiome's role in systemic inflammation has become a topic of much interest. One interesting finding is the interaction between leaky gut, the microbiome, and cardiometabolic health. Researchers have discovered that certain families of gastrointestinal bacteria can either positively or negatively affect cardiovascular health. The composition of the gut microbiome correlates to both BMI and HDL levels, independent of genetics, age, and gender. Thus, treating the gut using diet, probiotics, prebiotics, and other therapies may be effective for cardiometabolic patients.
Diabetes Type 2, Blood Pressure, Heart conditions are all interrelated.
Here we assess the important risk factors and biomarkers for cardiovascular disease such as lipid particle size, plaque formation, and metabolic syndrome that leads to diabetes.
We also carry out a thorough physical examination together with comprehensive Functional Lab tests such as Vitamin D, Homocysteine, organic acids, functional nutritional tests, the Microbiome and much more.
We utilize a range of therapeutics and effective nutraceuticals for vascular repair and very importantly lifestyle changes that include diet, exercise and stress management.
We implement a personalised diet plan and with regular follow up we track your progress and help you to restore you health and reverse your chronic illness such as type 2 diabetes, blood pressure, and improve vascular health.
