1 in 3 American adults have some form of cardiovascular disease – and this “silent killer” remains the largest cause of death for both men and women. Confidia™ Health Institute can combat and prevent cardiovascular disease, using advanced scientific testing to find microscopic heart issues before they become a serious problem.

Symptoms & Conditions

Cardiovascular Disease Symptoms & Conditions

What makes Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) especially troublesome is that its first sign is often a fatal heart attack or stroke. While it primarily involves the heart and blood vessels, Cardiovascular Disease can also affect your brain, limbs, and other body systems.

Symptoms may be different for men and women. For instance, men are more likely to notice chest pain, while women may experience shortness of breath, nausea, or extreme fatigue. Symptoms and conditions of Confidia patients who received Cardiometabolic Blood Testing include:

  • Chest pain and pressure (Angina)
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fluttering in the chest
  • Racing heartbeat (Tachycardia)
  • Slow heartbeat (Bradycardia)
  • Dizziness or fainting
  • Leg, ankle or foot swelling
  • Loss of breath with exertion, or at rest
  • Continual or extreme fatigue
  • Leg or arm pain, numbness, weakness or coolness
  • Back, neck or shoulder pain

Inside The Science

Increased Risk of Heart Disease in Women

Women are at increased risk of heart disease as they age. Most don’t know that: 

  • Women are 8 times more likely to die from a heart attack than from breast cancer. Although the number of deaths from breast cancer is stabilizing due to early detection and treatment, deaths from heart disease are increasing for women.
  • After age 45, the same percentage of women and men have high blood pressure. After age 64, a higher percentage of women have high blood pressure than men.
  • Each year, approximately 55,000 more women than men have strokes caused by plaque build-up. Plaque builds up in the carotid arteries more rapidly post-menopause.

Microscopic vs Macroscopic Cardiac Testing

Testing can find cardiac disease years before it manifests inside you – if that testing is done microscopically. Confidia Health Institute uses a unique, multi-test approach to assess and identify cardiovascular diseases at the microscopic level. Microscopic identification is vital because if nothing is done about cardiac disease within a 10-20 year period, the disease becomes macroscopic – which leads to heart attacks and strokes. CardioMetabolic Testing by Confidia can find microscopic heart disease – which is reversible if treated.

What Cardiac Testing Does Confidia Perform?

Confidia Health Institute analyzes the data from several cardiovascular tests to identify heart disease – and to inform a personalized treatment plan.

Confidia cardiac testing includes:

  • Metabolic (MET) Stress Testing
  • Intima-Media Thickness (IMT) Carotid Testing through HeartSmart
  • Ankle-Brachial Peripheral Artery Disease (ABI PAD) Testing through Biomedix
  • Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) Testing
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening
  • Advanced Holter Monitoring through Preventice
  • Echocardiograms
