A bundle that tests various markers relating to heart health, built to cover the basics at an affordable cost. Includes a Lipid Panel, High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein, Hemoglobin A1c, and Insulin.
[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.
[CRP] 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.
The Lipid Panel measures both cholesterol (total, LDL, and HDL) and fat (triglycerides) in the blood. These four metrics are commonly used as risk factors for cardiovascular disease.
Please note this test measures the same items as: the lipid panel with Total Cholesterol:HDL ratio, or lipid panel with LDL:HDL ratio, with the only difference being no ratio calculation is reported with the results (instead of Total Cholesterol:HDL Ratio, or LDL:HDL ratio respectively).
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 bundle that tests various markers relating to heart health, built to cover a few key basics. This bundle tests markers of inflammation, cholesterol, and metabolic health.
