If you have symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations, fatigue, and insomnia or have high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, a history of smoking or family history of heart disease you may benefit from this test. Even vague symptoms can be warning signs.
Ankle Brachial Index (ABI):
This test compares the artery pressure between the arms and legs and can determine if there is a problem with blood flow, which is a sign of blood vessel disease. This simple non-invasive but important test can pick up early signs of disease, which can signal major problems in the future.
Risk factors that may cause artery blockage include high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, a history of smoking or family history of heart disease.
Bone Density Testing:
Osteoporosis is a major concern for our aging population. Hip and spinal fractures can be painful and lead to life threatening complications. Bone density testing is a painless way to determine if bone loss is present and needs to be treated.
