The Lipid Panel will provide you with detailed information about your cholesterol and related chemistries that affect heart health. Significant deviations from the normal range may require further evaluation by your physician.


Includes: Cholesterol, total; high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol; low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (calculation); triglycerides; very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol (calculation).


Patient Instructions: Patient should fast for 12-14 hours before collection of the specimen.
   

Lipid Panel with LDL:HDL Ratio

Price: $50.99

Evaluation of hyperlipidemia as an index to coronary artery disease. The Lipid Panel With LDL:HDL Ratio is the same test as the Lipid Panel, with the addition of the LDL:HDL ratio, and will provide you with detailed information about your cholesterol and related chemistries that affect heart health. Significant deviations from the normal range may require further evaluation by your physician.


Includes: Cholesterol, total; high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol; low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (calculation); triglycerides; very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol (calculation) and LDL/HDL Ratio


Patient Instructions: Patient should fast for 12-14 hours before collection of the specimen.
   

Lipid Panel with LDL:HDL Ratio, HgbA1c, Glucose

Price: $91.69

Significant deviations from the normal range may require further evaluation by your physician.

Patient Instructions: Patient should fast for 12-14 hours before collection of the specimen.
   

Lipoprotein (a)

Price: $47.49

Measurement of lipoprotein (a) is now recommended in several patient subgroups for whom excess lipoprotein (a) may have important clinical consequences: (1) patients with premature atherosclerosis, (2) patients with a strong family history of premature coronary heart disease (CHD), (3) patients with elevated LDLC and greater than or equal to two risk factors, (4) patients who have had coronary angioplasty in whom lipoprotein (a) excess may increase the risk of restenosis, and (5) patients who have undergone coronary bypass graft surgery in whom Lp(a) excess may be associated with graft stenosis.


Includes: Lipoprotein (a) is also known by the following:
Lipoprotein Little a
Lp Little a
Lp(a)


Patient Instructions: Intake of alcohol, aspirin, niacin, and estrogen supplements have the potential of causing a misrepresentation of true Lp(a) concentrations.
   

NMR LipoProfileŽ with Insulin Resistance Markers

Price: $128.99

Measurement of lipoprotein (a) is now recommended in several patient subgroups for whom excess lipoprotein (a) may have important clinical consequences: (1) patients with premature atherosclerosis, (2) patients with a strong family history of premature coronary heart disease (CHD), (3) patients with elevated LDLC and greater than or equal to two risk factors, (4) patients who have had coronary angioplasty in whom lipoprotein (a) excess may increase the risk of restenosis, and (5) patients who have undergone coronary bypass graft surgery in whom Lp(a) excess may be associated with graft stenosis.


Includes: Insulin resistance markers; lipoprotein particle number; lipoprotein subfractions; standard lipid panel (total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides). Graph is not provided.


Patient Instructions: Patient should fast for 12-14 hours before collection of the specimen.

Estimated turnaround for results is 5 business days. If confirmation testing is required, the estimated time may be extended.
   

Ultimate Healthy Heart Cholesterol Profile

C-Reactive Protein (CRP), High Sensitivity (Cardiac Risk Assessment).


Patient Instructions: Patient should fast for 12-14 hours before collection of the specimen.
   

Ultimate NMRŽ Healthy Heart Cholesterol Profile

Price: $252.99

The Ultimate NMRŽ Healthy Heart Cholesterol Profile provides a more comprehensive coronary heart disease (CHD) risk assessment than the Lipid Profile. The Ultimate NMRŽ Healthy Heart Cholesterol Profile is our regular NMR LipoProfileŽ with Insulin Resistance Markers with the addition of C-Reactive Protein (CRP), High Sensitivity (Cardiac Risk Assessment) test and a Lipoprotein (a). Significant deviations from the normal range may require further evaluation by your physician.


Includes:

NMR LipoProfileŽ with Insulin Resistance Markers: Insulin resistance markers; lipoprotein particle number; lipoprotein subfractions; standard lipid panel (total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides). Graph is not provided.
Lipoprotein (a) Lp(a)
*Please note, the NMR LipoProfileŽ is processed through LipoScience, the C-Reactive Protein (CRP), High Sensitivity (Cardiac Risk Assessment) and Lp(a) is processed through Labcorp, results are provided on a Labcorp Report. Graph is not provided.


Patient Instructions: Patient should fast for 12-14 hours before collection of the specimen. Intake of alcohol, aspirin, niacin, and estrogen supplements have the potential of causing a misrepresentation of true Lp(a) concentrations.

What is a Cholesterol Test?

A Cholesterol test checks a patient’s blood to determine if their cholesterol and triglycerides are at an acceptable level for proper health, which gives physicians an indication on whether or not a patient is at risk for a heart attack or stroke. There are a variety of cholesterol tests available, offering a wide range of results for both doctors and patients. The most common is a lipid profile, which is often given to patients during their yearly checkup, or in some cases, every five years.

Who May Need a Cholesterol Test?

Cholesterol tests are an important early indicator of health issues which could result in a heart attack or stroke, making it imperative that patients begin having their cholesterol checked fairly regularly once they reach adulthood. Patients with known hereditary issues relating to high cholesterol, heart attacks, or strokes may want to take this test on an annual or semi-annual basis. Males over 40 years of age, as well as women over 50, should take this test annually at minimum in order to stay acquainted with their cholesterol levels, which can not only lead to coronary heart disease, but may affect their general wellness.

What Should I Expect from My Cholesterol Test?

Cholesterol tests begin with a blood sample being drawn from a patient in order for it to be analyzed by a medical laboratory. Cholesterol tests require patients to refrain from eating anywhere from 12-14 hours prior to the test being performed. There are common reference ranges that exist among cholesterol tests, though some labs may have different ranges for you and your physician. Speak to your doctor regarding your results to get more information on how they concern you and your health specifically.
