Visit to the Cleveland Heart Lab
A Visit to The Cleveland Heart Lab
by Dr. Hosmane
Just returned from a great trip to Cleveland where I visited with the Cleveland Heart Lab.
Great people. Great lab. Great Mission. They are a speciality lab and one of the things they measure for Hosmane Cardiology is inflammation through inflammatory markers.
50% of people who have heart attacks or strokes have normal cholesterol; the reason this occurs is that of inflammation. Lack of inflammation is why those with elevated cholesterol may not have a heart attack or stroke.
Check out Know Your Risk and discuss inflammation with Hosmane Cardiology.
Watch the Know your Risk Video in which you can learn more about how simple blood tests can help understand your inflammation and assess your individual risk for heart attack and stroke.
Thanks to the Cleveland Heart Lab Team and my fellow clinicians for the insight and exchange of ideas!!
