What's a cardiometabolic test?
If you are at high risk for developing cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes, wouldn't you want to know before experiencing symptoms? We offer cardiometabolic testing at Dr. Avi Ishaaya Centers in Los Angeles, CA to help you monitor your risks for chronic, life-altering illnesses and inflammation. You may also be at risk for metabolic syndrome, which can also be diagnosed by our board-certified physician in pulmonary, sleep, internal, and geriatric medicine, Dr. Abraham "Avi" Ishaaya.
Have you been told that you have the markers for metabolic syndrome by a doctor or a medical professional but didn't know what he or she meant? We can assess you for metabolic syndrome. Our team will evaluate your body weight, body mass index (BMI), blood pressure, blood glucose, and inflammation levels for indications of metabolic syndrome. After having your cardiometabolic testing, you will know your levels of glucose intolerance, insulin resistance, inflammation markers, and cholesterol/triglyceride profiles, With all of this information, Dr. Ishaaya can give you an idea of how likely you are to develop the components of metabolic syndrome and associated long-term health problems.
