Understanding Heart Disease Risk: Cholesterol, Triglycerides, Blood Sugar, and Inflammation

Heart disease (also known as cardiovascular disease), including coronary artery disease, heart attack, and congestive heart failure, is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the US. Cardiovascular disease is preventable for many people, and understanding the different risk factors is the first step in maintaining a healthy heart.

High LDL-cholesterol and triglycerides have been 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 can be key to reducing your risk for these disorders.

Not only do we measure your Lipids (Total Cholesterol, HDL, LDL, Triglycerides), but we also measure other important markers for cardiovascular disease.

hs-CRP - Elevated CRP levels can indicate chronic low-grade inflammation which may be 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. 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. Diabetes is a significant risk factor for heart disease.

If you’re wondering how to test for heart disease risk or how to check heart health at home, the Everlywell Heart Health Test can be a great place to start—but be sure you share your results with your healthcare provider to better understand your specific risk for developing heart disease.

Consider taking this test if you...

  • Take cholesterol medication
  • Have a family history of high cholesterol or heart disease
  • Have a personal or family history of Type 2 Diabetes
  • Are overweight
  • Drink alcohol frequently
  • Smoke
  • Don't exercise

When it comes to heart health, it’s important to check triglyceride and cholesterol levels (the American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association guidelines recommend cholesterol screening in healthy adults ages 20 and older every 4-6 years), and testing HbA1c and hs-CRP levels can provide more information about your heart’s health. This test allows you to check several different key indicators of risk for heart disease—all from the convenience of home.

Everlywell can provide suggestions to jumpstart a healthier lifestyle with our heart health home lab testing. As always, we encourage you to share your results with your doctor, who can provide more specific guidance on lifestyle changes.
