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).


The following markers are included:

  • Historical reporting (LDL-P, LDL-C)
  • Insulin-resistance score (LP-IR)
  • Lipoprotein particle number (LDL-P)
  • Particle concentration and size
    • Total HDL-P
    • Small LDL-P
    • LDL size
  • Standard lipid panel
    • Total cholesterol
    • LDL cholesterol (LDL-C; calculated)
    • HDL cholesterol (HDL-C)
    • Triglycerides
