Atherosclerosis

Evaluating Risk Factors: Atherosclerosis

Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as atherosclerosis — that affect you.   Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.

Diagnose your symptoms now!
  • see your health summarized and in detail
  • understand what's happening to your body
  • identify any nutritional deficiencies
If you indicate pre-existing cardiovascular problems, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Have you been diagnosed with Atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries)?
Possible responses:
→ Never had it / don't know
→ Probably had it/minor symptoms now resolved
→ Significant symptoms now resolved
→ Current problem
→ Current major problem

The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either history of atherosclerosis or atherosclerosis, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to consider possibilities such as:
Aneurysm / Rupture

Hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis) weakens artery walls and predisposes the damaged portion to enlargement.

Peripheral Vascular Disease

Peripheral artery disease is a likely sign of more widespread accumulation of fatty deposits in your arteries: Atherosclerosis of the peripheral arteries is by far the most common cause of peripheral vascular disease.

Senile Dementia

Atherosclerosis is a risk factor for reduced circulation in the brain, sometimes called ischemic vascular dementia (IVD).
