"New" Heart Risk Factors
- C-reactive protein,
- lipoprotein (a) or Lp(a), and
- ferritin (iron).
These blood elements are helping to explain why people with “normal” blood profiles and no obvious risks sometimes turn up with serious heart disease, and more than two of them can produce an increase in risk of heart disease.
Fortunately, these heart risk factors can be detected with a blood test, and most are extremely responsive to good cardiovascular nutrition, nutritional supplements, and other healthy lifestyle changes.
For more information on what I consider to be healthy levels of these blood elements, along with a summary of my recommendations to achieve these healthy levels, visit www.drsinatra.com or subscribe to my monthly newsletter, Heart, Health & Nutrition.
