Whole Blood Viscosity is an important hemodynamic biomarker which has a strong predictive value for heart attack, stroke, cognitive decline, and complications of diabetes such as retinopathy, ulcerations, and the need for dialysis. It is correlated with all known risk factors for cardiovascular disease and may be more clinically useful than traditional measures in assessing the likelihood of a cardiovascular event.
This profile includes both systolic and diastolic (high shear and low shear) measures of blood viscosity, as well as a Complete Blood Count with platelets and differential. Interpretative guidelines are provided, and free consults with our in-house physicians are available to assist you in making the best use of the results.
