Heart Health Plus Bundle

$110.95

A slightly more expanded bundle compared to the Heart Health Bundle. Tests various markers relating to heart health, and includes a Lipid Panel, High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein, Hemoglobin A1c, Insulin, GlycA, and Lipoprotein(a).

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.

$7.70

C-Reactive Protein, Cardiac

[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.

$23.10

Lipid Panel

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).

$8.75

Insulin

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.

$12.60

GlycA

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.

$28.00

Lipoprotein(a)

[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.

$30.80

Description

A bundle that tests various markers relating to heart health. This bundle includes all tests for the Heart Health Bundle (including markers for inflammation, cholesterol, and metabolic health), but also includes lipoprotein(a).
