NMR LipoProfile® With Insulin Resistance Markers (With Graph)
The The NMR LipoProfile Blood Test in addition to standard cholesterol results, this test provides a direct measure of your LDL particle number (LDL-P).
The NMR LipoProfile Blood Test, also known as The Particle Test, provides a direct measure of your LDL particle number (LDL-P) along with your standard cholesterol results. Knowing your LDL-P gives you a more complete picture of your heart health. It is important to know that having a high number of LDL particles is bad. LDL particles carry and deposit cholesterol into your arteries and the cholesterol becomes plaque—called atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries. More LDL particles (a higher LDL-P) means there is a greater likelihood that plaque may develop in your arteries increasing your risk for heart disease. If you have a high number of LDL particles, you should lower the number. There are many treatment options available to lower your LDL particle number. Results include: Cholesterol, Total HDL Size HDL-C HDL-P (Total) Insulin Resistance Score Insulin Resistance/Diab. Risk Large HDL-P Large VLDL-P LDL and HDL Particles LDL Particle Number LDL Size LDL Sz LDL-C LDL-P Lipids LP-IR Score sm LDL-P Small LDL-P Triglycerides VLDL Size Why should you take the NMR LipoProfile® test? You should take the NMR LipoProfile® test because it provides a more accurate picture of cardiovascular (CVD) risk than the standard lipid panel. Each year, heart attacks kill more than 8 times as many women than breast cancer and 15 times as many men than prostate cancer. According to a major study, 50% of the people who suffered a heart attack had normal cholesterol levels. If your cholesterol is normal, being lowered by treatments like diet, exercise, or medication; or you have any of the conditions listed below, the NMR LipoProfle test may be right for you: Diabetes Previous heart attack Family history of heart attack High blood pressure Overweight/Obesity Cardiometabolic risk Metabolic syndrome Low HDL (dyslipidemia) High triglycerides
