Asking LEF,

I would like to know LEF position regarding this blood test, and whether or not it should be recommend along with the other recommend LEF blood tests. If Galectin-3 is found to be elevated, we have a natural product to help lower levels.- MCP, Modified Citrus Pectin

Please review the follwing information:

"An essay was developed for checking circulating Galectin-3 levels as a risk factor for the progression of heart disease."


"The BGM Galectin-3 blood test is the first novel cardiovascular in-vitro diagnostic to be cleared by the FDA in >5 years."
