A comprehensive blood screening will be done. This is a more detailed look at your blood chemistry than our hormone blood tests. We will look at your basic blood levels, cholesterol levels, Cardiac CRP – a test that is directly correlated with your risk of heart disease, Vitamin D, Thyroid Panel, Hemoglobin A1C – identifies if you are at risk for diabetes, and much more!
You will undergo a series of screening exams which include:
Coronary Calcium Score – This quick CT scan looks at the coronary arteries and identifies any calcified plaque. This test is vital in determining if you are at risk.
Limited Echocardiogram – A sonogram of your heart looks at the “structural” aspect of your heart.
Carotid Intima Media Thickness (CIMT) – This sonogram of your carotid arteries allows us to measure the thickness of your Carotid Arteries.
Consultation with Dr. Abraham Jacob. With the results in hand, Dr. Jacob will review the findings and discuss your options. A detailed plan will be provided to put you on a path for healthy living.
