About Boston Heart Diagnostics (BostonHeartDiagnostics.com)
Boston Heart is re-inventing the role of diagnostics in cardiovascular disease (CVD), the number one cause of death in the United States. There's much more to CVD than "good" and "bad" cholesterol that's why traditional cholesterol screens often miss those at significant risk for heart attack or stroke. In fact, individuals can still have up to a 75% residual risk for serious cardiac events after successfully lowering LDL. We work with healthcare providers to engage individuals in their own well-being and give them the tools they need to prevent or reduce their CVD risk and improve health outcomes. Applying the latest clinical research and advances in laboratory science, we integrate results from our proprietary tests and health history information with an individual's food and exercise preferences all transformed into practical nutrition, lifestyle, and support strategies tailor-made for each person. We help people make meaningful and lasting change through the use of easy-to-understand reports, one-on-one coaching, and sustained support. Boston Heart Diagnostics is leading the charge to turn the promise of personalized medicine into a reality.
