Heart Health Advanced Plus Bundle


A bundle that tests various markers relating to heart health, and includes an NMR LipoProfile, High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein, Hemoglobin A1c, Insulin, GlycA, and Lipoprotein(a), Apolipoprotein A-I, Apolipoprotein B, Homocysteine, Vitamin D, Vitamin B12 and Folate, and Fibrinogen Activity.

Hemoglobin A1c

[hbA1C, A1C] – A measure of average blood glucose (or blood sugar) levels averaged over the last 2 to 3 months. Medical professionals often use this test in combination with others to diagnose risk of diabetes.


C-Reactive Protein, Cardiac

[CRP, hsCRP] Also known as hs-CRP or High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein. C-Reactive Protein is a protein made by the liver. Levels of CRP are typically associated with inflammation in the body. It is often used to detect risk in both acute and chronic conditions involving an inflammatory response.



Fasting recommended (see description for details). A test that measures levels of insulin in the blood, a hormone secreted by the pancreas which is involved in glucose regulation.



A test that integrates the protein levels and glycosylation states of several of the most abundant acute-phase proteins in serum allowing for a more stable measure of systemic inflammation. Sometimes used to aid in the identification and stratification of individuals at risk for future cardiovascular disease.



[Lp(a)] Typically used in conjunction with other lipid tests to evaluate disorders of lipid metabolism and to assess coronary heart disease in specific populations.


Apolipoprotein A-1

[ApoA1]  Apo A-1 has been suggested as a better discrimination of Coronary Artery Disease [CAD] than HDL. Apo A-1 levels have also been shown to correlate with survival rates or risk factors for patients with myocardial infarction and peripheral vascular disease.


Apolipoprotein B

[ApoB] Apo B may be important in the genesis of atherosclerosis and its quantitation may be useful in the evaluation of  risk for or having coronary atherosclerosis (CAD).


Homocyst(e)ine, Plasma


NMR LipoProfile

This test measures various blood lipids (Total Cholesterol, HDL-C, LDL-C, Triglycerides) as well as lipoprotein particle number (LDL-P), lipoprotein particle size and concentration (HDL-P, LDL Size, Small LDL-P) and insulin resistance score (LP-IR).

Please note this test measures the same items as: the lipid panel, and NMR Lipoprofile with Graph, and many of the same markers as the NMR Lipoprofile with IR Markers and NMR Lipoprofile with IR Markers and Graph (see description of individual products for more details).


Vitamin B12 and Folate


Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy

The 25-OH vitamin D test is commonly used to detect vitamin D deficiency. It can be an important indicator of osteoporosis (bone weakness) and rickets (bone malformation).


Fibrinogen Activity



A bundle that tests various markers relating to heart health. This bundle includes more advanced lipid testing (including an NMR LipoProfile, Apolipoprotein B, and Apolipoprotein A-I), plus other markers that measure inflammation, metabolic health, and levels of certain vitamins.
