This presentation discusses atherosclerosis as a metabolic disease, the primary drivers of heart disease and why traditional cardiovascular risk assessment, based on Framingham methodology is inadequate. Framingham methodology is distracting to most healthcare professionals as it does not address the true root causes of heart disease including metabolic disease and hormonal dysregulation. Proper tools that more accurately predict risk including the Dr. Joseph R. Kraft five hour insulin assay and the heart calcium scan (CT-scan of the heart) are discussed. Importantly, we also discuss how to take proper action to reduce ones’ risk. The ‘Muddy Waters of Framingham’ are murky and this presentations serves to provide clarity.
