What Do Cardiometabolic Blood Tests Measure?
The cardiometabolic blood test is a comprehensive panel that measures various biomarkers related to cardiovascular and metabolic health. By measuring these markers, cardiometabolic blood testing provides a more comprehensive view of your health, helping functional medicine practitioners identify underlying issues, create personalized treatment plans, and support your journey to better health. It’s a valuable tool for addressing not just the symptoms but the root causes of health concerns. These tests typically include:
This assesses the levels of LDL (low-density lipoprotein) and HDL (high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol, as well as total cholesterol, to gauge heart disease risk.
Elevated triglyceride levels can be a risk factor for heart disease and are associated with metabolic issues.
Measures your blood sugar levels, helping to identify diabetes or prediabetic conditions.
Provides a longer-term view of blood sugar control, particularly important in managing diabetes.
Assesses how well your body is handling glucose and can be indicative of insulin resistance, a precursor to diabetes.
Such as C-reactive protein (CRP) and homocysteine, which can indicate inflammation and potential risk for cardiovascular disease.
Measures your systolic and diastolic blood pressure, important in assessing heart health.
Including thyroid function and sex hormones, as imbalances can affect metabolism and overall well-being.
When Should You Consider This Test?
Consider a cardiometabolic blood test when you’re looking to gain a deeper understanding of your cardiovascular and metabolic health. It’s particularly beneficial if you have a family history of heart disease or diabetes, are experiencing unexplained symptoms like fatigue, weight changes, or irregular blood sugar levels, or simply wish to take a proactive approach to your well-being.
