Heart Health Blood Test
Heart health is an essential component to your overall wellbeing, as the heart is responsible for pumping blood full of life-sustaining oxygen and nutrients throughout your body. Cholesterol is one of the most prominent substances traveling within the blood, making it an excellent gauge of heart health.
This package provides an assessment of heart health using tests that measure the fatty substances (cholesterol and triglycerides) within the blood along with the inflammation levels commonly used to evaluate heart disease risk.
Fast for 12 hours (no food or drink, except water).
