June 1, 2022

Welcome to episode 13 of Optimal - The Podcast! In this episode Dr. Dicken Weatherby and Beth Ellen DiLuglio talk about the NMR Lipoprofile, and if it’s a good course of action for diagnosis.

After a little discussion about real food, Dr. Dicken and Beth dive deep into the NMR Lipoprofile panel and uncover the small nuances doctors need to be aware of when ordering this important series of biomarkers. They go through what can be measured with the NMR Lipoprofile, and why it would be a good option to consider– while also comparing it to the Cardio IQ Report (Ion Mobility).
