Cardiovascular Blood Spot (Test Code 1408)

Cardiovascular disease and diabetes are significant health concerns for Australians. Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in Australia and is becoming a worldwide health concern. The Cardiovascular blood spot profile was specifically designed to combine a number of key related metabolic markers which assist to understand the associated risk for cardiovascular disease and type II diabetes. When cardiovascular risk factors are abnormal, you may have an elevated risk for developing diabetes that is known as pre-diabetes, which can progress to diabetes itself unless lifestyle factors are adjusted to lower risk.
