FAQ

  • What is 6 For Life?
    Our disease risk assessment, called 6 for Life Health Assessment, is based on the most current scientific research, including the landmark Framingham Heart Study. It measures your risk of developing 6 chronic diseases—heart disease; stroke; type 2 diabetes; congestive heart failure; COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and lung cancer.
  • How does this test differ from your other screenings?
    Our vascular screenings show you where your vascular health stands today, whereas 6 for Life uses clinical data and lifestyle data to estimate your future disease risk. The vascular screenings and 6 for Life screening complement each other to provide a more comprehensive picture of where your health stands today. In addition, the 6 for Life assessment assesses your risk of all types of stroke, not just ischemic stroke.
  • How are my risks calculated and how accurate are my results?
    The clinical data gathered from your screening are run through a disease risk algorithm that assigns different point values to each risk factor. The risk factors were identified from the most current scientific studies on the disease states, as well as older studies like the landmark Framingham Heart Study*, which is the foundation for all heart disease risk assessments. Once you receive your own personal profile, you can then share your results with your physician.

    *This is the largest study of its kind, now in its 50th year, involving more than 15,000 people
