Why Should I Get Screened 

Who Needs to Have the CVProfilor® Test?

The CVProfilor® test is important because the earlier cardiovascular disease risk is identified, the earlier you and your physician can identify ways to prevent further progression of cardiovascular disease or even improve vascular health. If you are between the ages of 15 and 65, have a family history of cardiovascular disease or diabetes, and/or you have risk factors for cardiovascular disease (smoking, diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol, lack of regular exercise), it is important that you establish a baseline evaluation of your artery elasticity as soon as possible.

Research has shown that cardiovascular disease occurs at all ages in both men and women. Therefore, premature stiffening of your arteries may be an important indication to your physician that you have underlying vascular disease. If so, further diagnostic evaluation and preventive measures need to be taken, before the disease progresses.
