Do you know the age of your heart? It may be older than you think.
If it is, then knowledge is power: you still have time to make the changes in your diet, exercise regimen and lifestyle that can reverse damage to your heart and cardio-vascular system.
Only Heartfit Clinic has the Carotid IMT scan in the Calgary area. This amazing ultrasound technology measures the thickness of the first two layers of the carotid artery (located in your neck), the very site where blood flow-blocking plaque first develops, says Diamond Fernades, owner of Heartfit Clinic., which has two locations in Calgary.
“I work with people every day who had no idea they were at risk,” said Fernandes. “Once they understand they have an issue with their heart and arteries, they can take action and avoid a potentially debilitating or deadly episode.”
Your Carotid IMT is a value that increases with age. Published studies of Carotid IMT measurements on thousands of patients have made it possible to develop a reference range of what is normal at different ages.
Measuring the IMT enables us to compare your results to a very large population database and give us a relative age of your arteries. For example, Carotid -IMT can tell a 45-year-old patient that he or she has the arteries of a 60-year-old. If your cardiovascular age exceeds your chronological age, as in this example, it tells
you and your healthcare team you need to be more aggressive controlling risk factors associated with heart disease and stroke.
Risk factors for heart disease and stroke:
- Do you have a Family History of heart disease and/or stroke?
- Do you have risk factors for cardiovascular disease?
- Do you have diabetes?
- Do you have high blood pressure or high cholesterol?
- Are you overweight or inactive?
- Do you have stress?
- Are you smoking?
- Do you have unexplained chest pain or indigestion?
- Do you already have diagnosed disease? We can track your heart health to reduce your chances of another heart attack or stroke.
- Are you concerned about your heart health?
