One Minute With Dr. Stengler | Are You Getting Enough Out Of Your Cholesterol Testing?
Most likely, you have had cholesterol testing at a physical, but are you getting enough information to truly give you insight into your cardiovascular health?
At The Stengler Center for Integrative Medicine, we typically order testing for LDL Cholesterol, HDL Cholesterol, and triglycerides. These are relatively common when getting cholesterol tested. But emerging science has shows this combination is really not a strong enough predictor of your cardiovascular risk. There are new markers that can identify your cardiovascular risk up to 90%.
Watch Dr. Stengler break down cholesterol test results and talk through these new markers, and find out what you need to be asking your doctor for.
