PCOS Hurts Your Heart
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome / Disease Causes Insulin Resistance
Your body regulates your blood sugar by producing a hormone called insulin. When you eat and the amount of sugar in the blood goes up, your body releases insulin to bring send sugar from your blood into cells throughout your body so that your cells can use the sugar to make energy.
In PCOS, you have high levels of insulin because your cells become resistant to insulin. High levels of insulin cause your androgen hormone levels to go up. Unfortunately, in PCOS, you already have high androgen hormone production. The combined effect is a vicious cycle.
Blood Vessel Plaque
When your cells are resistant to insulin, the sugar stays in your blood instead of going into cells where it can be used. The resulting elevated levels of blood sugar wreak havoc on your blood vessels. Blood vessels like the ones that supply your heart (coronary arteries) form fatty plaques that narrow the arteries. This narrowing of the heart arteries from fatty plaque is called heart disease (specifically, atherosclerotic coronary artery disease)
As your heart arteries narrow from fatty plague, the amount of blood getting to your heart goes down. When one or more of the heart arteries gets totally blocked by plaque, then you get a heart attack.
Heart Health Risks
Clinical Study with 482,629 People in the UK BioBank
Our DNA based heart health score is the strongest risk factor for heart disease.
High Blood Pressure, Obesity
2nd Place for Risk
Powerful Big Data Science
Dr Mike Inouye from the University of Cambridge validated our genomic score by testing it on a massive data set from the UK BioBank, which has 482,629 participants
Armed with your Tap Clarity Heart Health score, you can empower your future health with devices and services tailored to your unique story.
We believe in a future free of chronic diseases, in which each of us can pursue our hopes and dreams unhindered by the suffering and financial burden of preventable disease like heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and fatty liver disease. We believe in a world in which preventive healthcare is embodied in a lifelong journey personalized to each unique person based on their DNA.
Dr Van's Personal Story
A Personal Story Without a Personalized Solution
Dr Van (right in the photo), Co-Founder of trineOMICS, found out that he has a rare genetic disease for which there is no cure. Genetic analysis showed a mutation in a part of his DNA but no one knows what that DNA codes. Frustrating right?
Dr Van decided to to channel his frustration into creating a platform that enables folks to personalize their experience for a disease that is preventable - heart disease. That is his super power - creating lemonade out of lemons!
Bob's Personal Story
A Personalized Genomics Solution
Bob (right in the photo), Co-Founder of trineOMICS, is proud of his low Tap Clarity score! Our Tap Clarity heart health score showed he has an extremely low lifetime risk for developing heart disease. After decades of training his brain to be calm, Bob had a had a Heart Calcium Scan at LA BioMed with world expert Dr Matt Budoff. His score was only 1! Makes sense right? Bob's super power - mindfullness.
DNA is the strongest single risk factor for heart disease. We believe, armed with the knowledge of your risk, you will develop your own super power to counteract that risk and transform into an even better you!
