Treating unrecognized risk factors like Pre-Diabetes allows reduction of risk and prevention of disease.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO:
Loss of muscle is lethal in older people. It begins to go way up in the mid 60s. There is increasing risk of of disability associated with falls. But this study in Nature magazine shows that the same risks for CV inflammation are also risks for muscle loss. The mechanism is not known. But it’s believed to be loss of blood supply due to TN-F, MPO, Lp-Pla2,…. In short – CV inflammation.
We have a course on CV inflammation. We’re providing video training on how to measure your own CV inflammation. The CDC has always said, “Know Your Numbers.” They were referring to cholesterol and bp. We think it’s even more important to know you’re own CV inflammation numbers.
