Lipid Blood Test Panel Plus Hemoglobin (Hb) A1C
This is a Lipid panel and hemoglobin A1C test.
The Lipid Profile is used to help 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, total; high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol; low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (calculation); triglycerides; very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol (calculation).
The A1c (Glycohemoglobin) test evaluates the average amount of glucose in the blood over the last two to three months. This is done by measuring the concentration of glycated (also often called glycosylated) hemoglobin A1c. Hemoglobin is an oxygen-transporting protein that is found inside red blood cells (RBCs). The predominant form is hemoglobin A. In 2010, the American Diabetes Association affirmed the decision of an international expert committee recomendation to use the A1c test to diagnose diabetes with a threshold >/= 6.5%. Point-of-care A1c assays are not sufficiently accurate at this time for diagnostic purposes.
