Why Use MD HeartPro
Atherosclerosis is associated with specific inflammatory biomarkers, which can be measured to help evaluate a patient’s risk for heart disease and cardiac events. HeartPro detects cardiovascular disease earlier and saves more lives. 50% of heart attaacks and strokes occur in patients with ‘normal’ cholesterol levels!
- 60% of patients having heart attacks or strokes have NORMAL lipid levels.
The 40-year-old lipid panel misses three of the most common disorders contributing to cardiovascular disease and offers no assessment of stroke.
- 50% of patients with heart disease have no traditional risk markers.2
- LDL-C and/or total cholesterol account for only 25% of the risk of premature cardiovascular disease.3
