Look at Your Kidney Function to Assess Your Heart Attack Risk

Cholesterol and blood pressure readings are common risk factors for heart disease, although the former is probably over-rated.  Now we know that a very common test to assess kidney function may be an even better predictor of coronary artery disease.  Ask your doctor about this important new finding.  Deterioration of kidney function occurs early and usually progresses slowly.  If you are concerned, get an ultra-fast CT scan or IMT carotid artery test to see if you are developing plaque.  Interestingly, chelation therapy reduces cardiac events but also can improve mild to moderate kidney function, according to peer-reviewed research.  The best preventative you can take is chelation.  Don’t wait until it is too late.
