Lipid Profile with Total Cholesterol:HDL Ratio helps determine heart disease risk and to help decide treatment if you are borderline or high risk. The results of the lipid profile and other known risk factors of heart disease are considered to develop treatment and follow-up. Depending on your results and other risk factors, treatment options may involve diet and exercise changes or lipid-lowering medications such as statins. Test Includes: Cholesterol, HDL (the "good" cholesterol), LDL (the "bad" cholesterol), VLDL, Triglycerides, and the Ratio of Good cholesterol to total.

C-Reactive Protein, High Sensitivity (CRP,hs) Measurement of CRP by high sensitivity CRP assays may add to the predictive value of other markers used to assess the risk of cardiovascular and peripheral vascular disease.  Increases in CRP values are nonspecific. CRP is an indicator for a wide range of disease processes and should not be interpreted without a complete clinical history. Recent medical events resulting in tissue injury, infections, or inflammation, which may cause elevated CRPlevels, should also be considered when interpreting results. Serial analysis of CRP should not be used to monitor the effects of treatment.

Homocysteine helps diagnose B12/folate deficiencies and to identify patients who may be at risk for heart disease and/or strokes.
