Our test combines three popular tests to help evaluate risk for cardiovascular disease, heart attack, or stroke. This package includes a Lipid Panel, C-Reactive Protein High Sensitivity test, and a Hemoglobin A1C with eAG.
A Lipid Panel is the standard and most commonly ordered cholesterol test. It measures Total Cholesterol, LDL, HDL, Triglycerides, and VLDL. A CRP High Sensitivity test measures a protein which can be a risk factor for events like a heart attack or stroke. Hemoglobin A1C measures glucose (sugar) in the blood over the past 2-3 months.
Oral contraceptives, IUDs, pregnancy, and menstruation may raise hs-CRP levels. Levels are lowest during ovulation.
The Lipid Panel blood test requires fasting for 9 – 12 hours prior to going in for blood collection.
