What's tested?

Apolipoprotein Evaluation

Apolipoprotein A1, Apolipoprotein B, Apolipoprotein B/A1 Ratio

Lipid Panel

Cardio IQ® Cholesterol, Total; Cardio IQ® HDL Cholesterol; Cardio IQ® Triglycerides; Non-HDL and Calculated Components (LDL-Cholesterol, Chol/HDLC Ratio, Non-HDL Cholesterol)

Lipoprotein (a)

Lipoprotein Fractionation

LDL Particle Number; LDL Small; LDL Medium; HDL Large; LDL Pattern; LDL Peak Size.

There is a correlation between increased risk of premature heart disease with decreasing size of LDL particles. Ion mobility offers the only direct measurement of lipoprotein particle size and concentration for each lipoprotein from HDL3 to large VLDL.

Creatine Kinase (CK)

Test for myocardial infarction and skeletal muscle damage. Elevated results may be due to: Myocarditis, Mycardial Infarction (heart attack), Muscular Dystrophy, Muscle Trauma or excessive exercise.

Fibrinogen Activity

CBC

Includes

WBC, RBC, Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, MCV, MCH, MCHC, RDW, Platelet Count, MPV and Differential (Absolute and Percent – Neutrophils, Lymphocytes, Monocytes, Eosinophils, and Basophils)

CMP

Includes

Albumin, Albumin/Globulin Ratio (calculated), Alkaline Phosphatase, ALT, AST, BUN/Creatinine Ratio (calculated), Calcium, Carbon Dioxide, Chloride, Creatinine with GFR Estimated, Globulin (calculated), Glucose, Potassium, Sodium, Total Bilirubin, Total Protein, Urea Nitrogen

Vitamin D

Vitamin D insufficiency is very common in the United States and worldwide. Several recent epidemiologic studies have demonstrated a strong association between vitamin D insufficiency and risk of CVD(cardiovascular disease), risk of diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Several prospective studies have suggested that vitamin D deficiency predisposes individuals to increased risk of incident hypertension, IHD, sudden cardiac death, or heart failure.

STUDY

 

Uric Acid

HS-CRP

Homocysteine

An elevated concentration of homocysteine is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
