RWS Clinician’s Corner: In this series we interview thought leaders on the latest research, products, tools and best practices for getting our clients exceptional results.
This episode of the RWS Clinician’s Corner is with our very own medical director, Dr. Chris Turnpaugh, who led us through a deep dive into the best lipid markers that give a much better picture of one’s cardiovascular health and risk than the standard lipid profile. Understanding these labs is absolutely critical for supporting our client’s health and reducing their risk of a severe cardiovascular event. Did you know that 50% of the time, a full-blown heart attack is the first overt sign or symptom of cardiovascular disease?
In this episode you’ll learn:
-The three core underlying factors driving all cardiovascular disease. If you understand and can address these, you can significantly reduce the risk of all-cause mortality
-The role of the immune system in cardiovascular disease
-The most important markers to assess for cardiovascular disease risk (they’re not what you think and very different from standard medical model)
-What lipids can tell you about mitochondrial function and oxidative stress
Also, here is a copy of the slides he shared and referred to.
