Heart disease is the number one killer in the US, and has been for over 100 years. In our country we have excellent cardiologists and cardiac surgeons. Despite their great skills in combating heart disease it still remains the top cause of death in our country. The key to treating cardiovascular disease is to catch it early, long before a cardiologist or cardiovascular surgeon is needed.
Following a standard lipid panel is not enough to protect one from cardiovascular disease. A recent UCLA study showed that about 50% of the people that go to the ER for heart attack or stroke have a normal lipid panel. Our patients deserve better information.
Bountiful Family HealthCare does advanced cardiac testing. This allows us to catch disease at a much earlier phase of the disease. We are then able to institute individualized treatment plans that may include individualized diet and exercise plans, nutritional supplements, prescriptions and referrals to specialists as needed. We empower you with education so that you can take control of your health, and not let disease control you.
