What will your results tell you?

A breakdown of your heart test and actionable follow up steps.

There are a number of important variables to monitor that contribute to your heart health. Cholesterol and lipid levels can be normal or abnormal. Results can indicate certain cardiovascular diseases, which can lead to chest pain, heart attack, and in some cases stroke.

HbA1C and Glucose levels can provide vital information on the health of your heart as well. The results of this test can help you and your doctor modify your lifestyle and diet to improve your overall quality of life.

CRP levels can also be important. Elevated CRP levels can be a marker for an acute inflammatory disease (allergies, the flu, cold, etc.) Persistent CRP elevations are indicative of chronic inflammatory diseases (dementia, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, diabetes, Cancer, Crohn’s Disease, Lupus etc.)

True Marker also gives you treatment recommendations if necessary. You will also receive a full PDF of the report you can use to discuss with your doctor.

What will your results tell you?

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing, and not merely the absence of disease.

It is recommended to take most health tests yearly. True Marker’s at home tests can help monitor and track your overall wellbeing.

True Marker's general health tests help monitor important biomarkers for Organ function, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and hormone balance. These tests can reveal any potential problems with your health.

There are different ways to measure heart health. Here's why they matter for you:

Cholesterol

Cholesterol is essential for creating new cells in our bodies. You attain cholesterol by eating foods containing animal protein, and it can also be created in our livers.

LDL Cholesterol

LDL cholesterol, or "bad" cholesterol, can increase your risk of heart disease if elevated. Elevated LDL cholesterol levels can lead to deposits into blood vessels known as atherosclerosis.

HDL Cholesterol

HDL cholesterol, or "good" cholesterol, can lower your risk of heart disease if normal. Normal HDL cholesterol levels prevent cholesterol deposits from building up in blood vessels and forming atherosclerosis.

Triglycerides

Triglycerides are fat deposits in the blood that can lead to cardiovascular problems if elevated. Triglycerides can build up in numerous tissues and organs such as the liver and pancreas leading to various diseases.

HbA1C

HbA1c provides insight to your blood glucose levels over the past 90 days. A variation from the normal range can be indicative of certain diseases (Pre-diabetes, diabetes, or cardiovascular disease). Your HbA1C and glucose levels provide necessary information regarding your body’s glycemic index and control. Given your HbA1c level, you can begin lifestyle modification alongside dietary changes with the help and guidance of your doctor. Controlling these levels can prevent loss of vision and it can also prevent amputation of your lower limbs.

C-Reactive Protein

CRP is a plasma protein synthesized in the liver. Blood CRP is a marker used to measure the level of inflammation in the body. CRP elevations can be non-specific, but they can also point to an underlying inflammatory disease. The disease can be something insignificant such as a cold or something significant such as heart disease. Monitoring your CRP level is crucial for your overall health.
