Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of mortality in the USA. Most cardiovascular diseases are preventable and treatable. Risk factors include genetic predisposition, age, sex, use of tobacco, lack of physical exercise, poor diet, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high LDL (bad cholesterol), Low HDL (good cholesterol), high triglycerides.
The current standard labs used to assess hyperlipidemia is willfully inadequate. Here at Zinnia Aesthetics we do advanced lipid testing which goes beyond the standard lipid testing.
By doing the most advanced lipid tests, our doctors can come up with a treatment plan that will include the correct diet, exercise program, lifestyle modification measures and supplements. Although our goal and belief is to use the bodies own ability to heal itself with the treatment plans we have already enumerated there are times conventional medical treatment may be required.
Our personalized and holistic approach to patient care will ensure that your treatment will be monitored overtime and we will see progress and resolution of the hyperlipidemia.
Advanced Diabetes Testing
Diabetes is fast becoming a major health issue affecting millions of Americans. Apart from genetic predisposition to the disease, obesity, poor lifestyle choices and lack of early detection methods increase the chances of more people succumbing to diabetes.
Most conventional doctors rely on regular fasting blood glucose levels to screen patients for diabetes. If a patients glucose levels are within the designated lab value ranges the patient is deemed non diabetic. The problem is patients can have normal glucose levels and be biochemically on the road to full blown diabetes and early testing using advanced pre-diabetes testing methods can detect patients heading towards becoming diabetics 4 to 5 years before it happens.
Here at Zinnia Aesthetics and Anti-Aging we work with specialized labs that can identify insulin resistant and pre-diabetic patients and by modifying the patients diet, implementing other lifestyle changes and supplying patients with supplements that the body needs for normal glucose metabolism, many patients can avoid developing diabetes.
