The Importance Of A Complete Assessment

A detailed assessment is where an effective treatment plan starts. What is the cause of your heart-related concerns?  Do you have preventable risk factors including weight gain, diabetes or do you not exercise?  Typically it is a combination of many factors. Our Naturopathic Doctors will investigate further by doing the following:

1.  A complete health and lifestyle review
2.  Calculation of your overall cardiovascular risk using the Framingham Risk Score, which is your 10 year heart health risk score.
3.  Complaint-specific physical exam including waist to hip measurements and vitals
4. A review of your most recent blood work.  If needed they will also recommend additional labs which may include  Comprehensive Lab Testing to further investigate your individual risk. The relevance and pro’s and con’s of each test will be discussed.
