Heart disease is the second leading cause of adult deaths in the UK and the number one disease affecting men. Almost 50% of all heart attack patients display traditional early warning markers for cardiovascular disease (CVD).  

This is why Functional DX has carefully curated the Cardio Check Panel, a state-of-the-art panel reporting on over 110 markers. 

Our comprehensive panel includes: Homocysteine, Apolipoprotein A1, Apolipoprotein B, Lipoprotein (a), LpPla2, Fibrinogen, fatty acids, and glycaemic markers.  It also measures a myriad of other biomarkers including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and organic acids. Enabling you to identify general health trends,  accurately assess the health status of the other body systems, nutrient needs, and underlying clinical patterns crucial for heart and human health.  

Our thorough investigative tests will help you with identifying any current underlying issues as well as with the prevention of health deterioration. Making our Cardio Check blood test and reporting the ultimate tool for the modern healthcare practitioner to identify and monitor the health status and trends of your client’s heart health.   Our FDX Cardio Check panel has been created to look further than the norm (traditional blood analysis) to reveal more about your client’s health picture and to identify areas to focus an effective treatment plan. FunctionalDX uses the world’s most advanced blood interpretation technology considers 13 body systems, 7 accessory systems, 7 macronutrient systems, 14 micro-nutrient deficiencies and 40+ clinical dysfunctions.
