Recent breakthroughs in medical science have created amazing opportunities for doctors to change lives in ways that were once only thought to be science fiction.  New blood tests now offer incredible insight into patient heart health that could help prevent heart related ailments.

"People can significantly reduce their risk of heart disease if they have the information and support they need to make heart-smart changes in their lives," says Dr. Joyal.  "It really is all about taking control of your own health."

The information provided by the new tests allows doctors to more accurately prescribe diet and lifestyle changes or medication.  Tests include the PLAC® test, which detects enzymes that promote inflammation in the arteries, the VAP test, which measures the size of cholesterol molecules, and the Omega Score Test, which measures Omega-3 and Omega-6 fats in the blood.

With heart disease listed as the leading cause of death among women, Dr. Joyal recommends getting tested sooner than later.  In fact, many patients choose to do so in their 30's, especially those with a family history of heart problems or other risk factors like high cholesterol, diabetes, or obesity.  Tune in Wednesday for the entire story, or get more information by visiting http://www.lef.org/bloodtest.
