The Comprehensive Plus Heart Health Panel includes five tests that provide an in-depth view of total heart health and may be used to determine increased risk for cardiovascular disease, heart attack or stroke. The Comprehensive Plus Heart Health Panel includes the Lipid Panel, C-Reactive Protein High Sensitivity, Homocysteine, Lipoprotein (a) and Hemoglobin A1C with eAG.
A Lipid Panel is the standard and most commonly ordered cholesterol test. It measures Total Cholesterol, LDL, HDL, Triglycerides, and VLDL. A CRP High Sensitivity test measures a protein which can be a risk factor for events like a heart attack or stroke. Elevated Homocysteine levels can increase risk for blood clots as well as heart attack or stroke. Lipoprotein (a) is an inherited risk factor for heart disease. Hemoglobin A1C measures glucose (sugar) in the blood over the past 2-3 months.
Turnaround time for the Comprehensive Plus Heart Health Panel is typically 2-5 business days.
The Comprehensive Plus Heart Health Panel requires fasting 10-12 hours prior to going in for blood collection.
