Maylin Rodriguez-Paez, RNMany people think that if they lower their cholesterol and eat right, they can successfully head off a heart attack. We only wish it were that cut and dry.
The unfortunate reality is there are at least 17 different risk factors for heart disease alone. Thankfully, most of them are detectable with the right blood tests. The key here, of course, is knowing which tests to take.
If you get an annual physical (as everyone should), your doctor probably requires you to have a CBC/Chemistry panel as the mainstay of your blood work. This is absolutely essential for heading off problems.
But what about those lesser known, lesser prescribed blood tests that can make all the difference? Check out the special report below to learn about a few you should definitely include, even if your doctor doesn’t normally prescribe them.
