This combination test uses 8 essential biomarkers for cholesterol, diabetes and inflammation to build a risk profile for developing heart disease, heart attack, stroke and other health problems.
Total Cholesterol is a measurement of the total amount of cholesterol in the blood, this includes low-density and high-density lipoprotein cholesterols. It is used to produce hormones for development, growth and reproduction. Total cholesterol tests are used to estimate the risk of developing heart disease.
High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) is a form of cholesterol which is classified as the ‘good’ cholesterol. Its main function is to help remove cholesterol from the heart’s arteries. HDL tests are used to estimate the risk of developing heart disease.
Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) is classified as the ‘bad’ cholesterol, this is causes cholesterol build-up and blockage in the arteries. LDL tests are used to estimate the risk of developing heart disease.
Total Cholesterol: HDL Ratio is a calculation which indicates the amount of ‘good’ cholesterol there are in terms of the total cholesterol in the body. HDL helps to remove cholesterol from the heart’s arteries. Total cholesterol: HDL ratio test is used to estimate the risk of developing heart disease.
Non-HDL Cholesterol is the number of total cholesterols without the high-density lipoprotein (HDL), the ‘good’ cholesterol. NON-HDL cholesterol tests are used to investigate the lipid profile during the estimation the risk of developing heart disease.
Triglyceride is a type of fat stored in the body’s tissues and can derive from foods such as butter and oil. Triglyceride tests are used to investigate the lipid profile during the estimation the risk of developing heart disease.
Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) test is used to measure the average level of blood sugar over the past two to three months and is commonly used to diagnose and monitor diabetes. The sugar is called glucose which builds up in the blood and binds to the haemoglobins in the red blood cells. HbA1c test will then measure how much glucose is bound and is used during the diagnoses of diabetes.
High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hs-CRP) is a test which measures the lower levels of CRP. CRP is a protein which increases in the blood during inflammation. hs-CRP tests are used predict the risk of heart conditions such as a heart attack.
