What is a Level 1 Test?
Level 1 Diagnostics is based on Dr. Steven Helschien’s dedication to preventive medicine and his theory that most of medicine is set up so that health professionals are like life guards and try to save patients who are drowning, rather than teaching them to swim. His new Level 1 Testing is the most comprehensive and earliest cardiovascular testing available. This is how it compares to the other three levels of testing.
Level 0 Test- a test that does not have a great deal of predictive value and can be done by a non or low skilled person.
Level 2 Test – a test that may be invasive and may tell you about disease that is present. It is done by a skilled person.
Level 3 Test – a test that is invasive and might lead to drug or surgical intervention. It is done by a highly skilled person.
Level 1 Test – a test that will show not only any disease that is present, but also disease that is pre-symptomatic and present only on a cellular level—the earliest detection. Level 1 tests have been clinically proven to be highly predictive.
