Lipoprotein (a) Test


The Lipoprotein (a) Test is a medical examination
that measures levels of lipoprotein (a) in the blood, a genetic variation of
LDL cholesterol. Elevated Lipoprotein (a) levels are associated with an
increased risk of cardiovascular disease. However, Lipoprotein (a) itself
doesn’t cause specific symptoms. It acts as a marker for potential
heart-related problems. High levels may signal a higher risk of heart attacks
and strokes. Physicians may recommend this test, especially for individuals with a
family history of heart disease, to assess cardiovascular risk and determine
appropriate preventive measures and treatments.
