Your test results will show you whether you maintain optimal levels of total cholesterol, HDL, LDL and triglycerides. Not only does this panel measure your cholesterol and lipids, it also includes other important biomarkers for evaluating heart disease and diabetes risk. Knowing and taking steps to optimize your cholesterol and lipids, A1C and hs-CRP levels can help reduce your risk for these conditions.
Cholesterol is necessary to make the cells in our body. We get cholesterol from two sources - our liver makes cholesterol and we can also get it from eating foods from animals. We measure cholesterol directly rather than a calculation.
Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL) is generally considered the "bad cholesterol" as high blood concentrations of this form of cholesterol can result in a lipid disorder, increasing the risk of heart disease. LDL cholesterol can deposit in arteries and lead to a condition known as atherosclerosis. LDL can be calculated mathematically using triglycerides and total cholesterol values or measured directly – this test measures calculated LDL.
HDL, high-density lipoprotein, is considered the "good cholesterol" because it is able to carry cholesterol deposits away from arteries and back to the liver where it can be broken down and cleared from the body.
Triglycerides are the primary form of fat in the blood. Fats can deposit in organs like the liver and pancreas, affect blood flow, and interfere with healthy functioning.
HbA1c is a measurement of the amount of glucose bound to the heme found in red blood cells. This measurement let's you know how well your sugar levels have been controlled over the past 90 days.
hs-CRP is a measure of C-reactive protein (CRP), a protein that the liver makes when there is inflammation in the body. While some inflammation in the body is beneficial to help protect organs from injuries or infections, excessive inflammation has been linked to heart disease.
