Cholesterol – Comprehensive


High cholesterol is influenced by various
factors, including diet, physical inactivity, obesity, smoking, excessive
alcohol consumption, genetic predisposition, diabetes, thyroid disorders,
kidney problems, advancing age, and gender differences. Identifying and
understanding these risk factors are essential for effective prevention. A comprehensive
cholesterol panel which assesses LDL, HDL, triglyceride levels, and more, plays a
crucial role in diagnosis and management, particularly for individuals with
risk factors. Timely medical evaluation is vital for mitigating heart disease
risk and enhancing overall well-being.

The panel includes:

  • Total Cholesterol, HDL Cholesterol, Triglycerides, LDL-Cholesterol (calculated), Cholesterol/HDL Ratio (calculated), Non-HDL Cholesterol (calculated).
  • Lipoprotein Fractionation evaluates the correlation between increased risk of premature heart disease with decreasing size of LDL particles. Ion mobility, which is part of this test, directly measures lipoprotein particle size and concentrations for each lipoprotein from HDL3 to large VLDL.
  • Apolipoprotein B is a protein that is involved in metabolism the of lipids and is the main protein component of lipoproteins such as very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL, the “bad cholesterol”). This test measures the amount of apo B in the blood.
  • Lipoprotein (A) Increased levels of Lipoprotein in the body are associated with inflammation in the walls of the arteries. This can lead to changes in the blood vessels, including hardening of the arteries.
