Kidney Function Provides a Clue for Cardiac Risk

Blood profiles that used to report simple creatinine levels loosely suggested that kidney function was normal.  Nowadays, the lab calculates the GFR, which is a much more sensitive measure of potential kidney disease.  If the GFR is rising according to your sex, race, and age, it might mean that your risk of heart disease is rising similarly without your knowledge.  Many doctors have not caught on yet.  This is the time to take aggressive preventive measures, such as IV chelation therapy, which can help both kidney and heart function. 

See your integrative doctor to take a major step to avoid serious heart disease.
