Cholesterol and Lipids Test
Having a combined cholesterol and lipid test is one of the most common ways to assess your overall health. High LDL-cholesterol and triglycerides are linked to a number of diseases, including heart attack, stroke, peripheral artery disease and atherosclerosis, high blood pressure (hypertension), and type II diabetes. Controlling your blood cholesterol levels is key to reducing your risk factor for these disorders.
Not only do we measure your Lipids (Total Cholesterol, HDL, LDL, Triglycerides) - we also measure other important markers not found in your everyday Cholesterol or Lipid panel.
hs-CRP - Elevated CRP levels indicate chronic low-grade inflammation which is correlated with an increased risk for heart disease.
HbA1c - HbA1c levels are considered to be a good measure of your 90-day glucose levels and do not vary as much day-to-day as your standard glucose marker, although HbA1c measurements are not a substitute for measuring daily glucose if your doctor has prescribed that you do so. High HbA1c levels are widely considered to be indicative that you either have, or have an elevated risk for developing, type 1 or type 2 diabetes. If already diagnosed, HbA1c can also be a good indicator on how well your diabetes treatment plans are working.

What will my results tell me?
Your results will contain your personal levels of Total Cholesterol, HDL, LDL, Triglycerides, hs-CRP, and HbA1c and whether they are low, normal, or high. It is widely known that variance between labs can occur for any marker. This happens for either dried blood spot or serum samples, and we have ensured that the variation seen is within acceptable ranges according to widely accepted and regulated lab standards. We always encourage sharing the results with your health care provider.
