Cardio IQ® Advanced Lipid Panel with Inflammation Blood Test
This Cardio IQ® Advanced Lipid Panel with Inflammation helps screen for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and monitors anti-inflammatory treatment.
Order this Cardio IQ® Advanced Lipid Panel with Inflammation to help assess your risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) and monitor anti-inflammatory treatment. Although routine lipid profiles measure your overall cholesterol levels, bad cholesterol (LDL), good cholesterol (HDL), and triglycerides to evaluate your risk of cardiovascular disease, they do not thoroughly evaluate your overall health. Recent evidence shows that nearly half of all patients with normal cholesterol levels have underlying heart risks due to inflammation in the artery walls. This inflammation leads to plaque build-up in your arteries, restricting the flow of oxygen-rich blood throughout your body and eventually resulting in a life-threatening condition like a heart attack or stroke.
In addition, to inflammation, other factors may increase your risk of ASCVD, such as:
- Men age 45+ and women 50-55
- Diabetes or prediabetes
- Obesity or overweight
- Inactive lifestyle
- Previous heart attack or stroke
- Family history of cardiovascular disease
Advanced Lipid Panel testing can easily measure inflammation and assess your inflammatory state and cardiovascular risk. Routine monitoring of your inflammatory status may allow you to catch the initial development or even treat advanced stages of inflammation to reduce your cardiovascular risk.
This Cardio IQ® Advanced Lipid Panel with Inflammation consists of a standard lipid profile and additional blood biomarkers identifying ASCVD and inflammatory risks across a broader range. For example, the additional Apolipoprotein B test included in this panel can measure the amount and size of atherogenic particles that have the potential to cause cardiovascular disease. This detailed information may help your healthcare provider develop a more targeted treatment plan to reduce your risks over time.
This panel includes the following tests:
- Cardio IQ® Cholesterol, Total
- Cardio IQ® HDL Cholesterol
- Cardio IQ® Triglycerides
- Cardio IQ® Non-HDL and Calculated Components
- Cardio IQ® Lipoprotein Fractionation, Ion Mobility
- Cardio IQ® Apolipoprotein B
- Cardio IQ® Lipoprotein (a)
- Cardio IQ® hs-CRP
- Cardio IQ® Lp-PLA2 Activity
