Weight & heart conditions we successfully treat.

Diabetes / Prediabetes / Insulin Resistance.

These three conditions refer to a group of conditions that affect how your body uses blood sugar (glucose), with the accompanying symptoms dependent on the type.

Our focus at Index Health is to help people improve their glucose and insulin numbers, but we also prioritize preventive testing, to help someone know if they are trending towards diabetes, many years ahead of time. We often use real time tracking devices, such as a continuous glucose monitor (or CGM), or ketone measuring devices.

Cholesterol Issues.

Understanding which cholesterol markers are important to know can be confusing, as for so many years, it was thought that Total cholesterol and LDL levels are the only things that matter.

Our team uses the most advanced markers to help you not only have a clear understanding of current risk level, but more importantly, what areas we need to target in your personalized lifestyle, nutrition, supplement, medications (sometimes) plan.

Heart Attack / Stroke Risk.

We believe it is our job to help you understand what your labs actually mean, in detail. As part of that, we use standardized calculators (such as Framingham risk calculator, Reynolds risk, Mesa risk), so you can clearly see the progress over time, and understand how it is potentially impacting your 10 year and lifetime risk of stroke.

Hypertension.

Hypertension is a condition that involves the long-term forces of blood exerted upon the walls of our blood vessels. It is a well understood primary risk factor for heart disease, stroke, and aneurysms.

While medications may be appropriate in some instances, we look for why a person has high blood pressure. Some commonly encountered reasons have to do with inaccurate understanding of beneficial nutrition plans, poor sleep or stress management habits, and suboptimal body composition, just to name a few.

02

Get a personalized plan from your doctor.

The labs & screening tell us whether you’re on path to become a diabetic, your heart-disease, and stroke risk within 10-15 years, & how to proactively plan, & prevent.

What’s in your personalized lifestyle plan?

Personalized plans target your risks and root cause drivers using nutrition, lifestyle changes, and at times targeted supplements.

Nutrition plan.

Nutrition plans include: cardio-metabolic food plan, nitric oxide boosting foods, low glycemic load, anti-inflammatory nutrition plans.

Lifestyle & movement plan.

Enjoyable forms of movement, stress management, sleep tracking (Oura ring), mental & emotional.

Supplements & medication.

We believe in a nutrition first approach with targeted supplements. We do not make any money from supplements. Supplement recommendations are targeted entirely at the risk factors that are identified in the tests. Our physicians use prescription medication as needed, which is infrequent.

Tools that we use.

CGMs: Continuous glucose monitoring to understand how your body reacts to certain foods and glucose levels.

Remote EKG monitoring:
Real-time EKG feedback that gives an indication if the heart is being strained during exercise (e.g. Apple Watch, FitBit, Fourth Frontier).

Home BP monitoring:
Blood pressure trends and logs.

Retesting, follow-ups, and risk calculators.

Geared towards lowering 10 year and lifetime risk of heart attack and stroke, we use standardized risk calculators to track risk & your improvement over time (American College of Cardiology, and Mayo Clinic).

Meet Ryan (55) who came to us 50 lbs overweight, with a heightened risk of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.

We personalized Ryan's plan by including 12h overnight intermittent fasting, discussed adequate protein and fiber intake in the midst of being vegan. Ryan also started logging blood pressure, and began using a Freestyle Libre CGM (glucose monitor) to identify harmful foods. We also recommended that he take a vegan omega 3 supplement, and was guided on a resistance training regimen. Here are his results after just 90 days:

33%
Decrease in LDL Cholesterol
59%
Lowering of Insulin
66%
Lowering of hsCRP

Why is Index Health more effective from everything else you’ve tried?

What we do.

Advanced lab tests & root cause analysis.

We use advanced lab tests that analyze the root cause of your health condition, which allow us to plan and treat you with precision.

100% personalized plans.

Get a personalized plan that's made for your body, and your condition.

Nutrition & lifestyle first.

Food and lifestyle are medicine. We put this at the forefront of our approach to reaching optimal health.

Data-tracking & results.

With ongoing support, tracking, and testing you'll be able to feel & see real results.

What we don’t do.

One size fits all.

Healthcare today can be summarized as 15min appointment that inevitably ends in prescription medication.

Band aid approach.

A conventional protocol would prescribe a pill or maybe a supplement to solve for your health problems, but that doesn’t target the root cause. Index Health don't mask your symptoms -  we help you figure out exactly what is driving them and find relief.

No ongoing support.

Most clinics are barely there for you when you're sick. We're here for you when you need us, to prevent disease, and to plan for longevity.

Quick fixes.


Our approach takes effort, time and willingness to change. If you are not ready to put in the time and effort to get lasting results, then we are likely not a fit.
