Basic Heart Health Panel

Lipid Panel, CRP HS


Test Code: 120766, 303756
Specimen Type: Blood

Description:

Basic Heart Health Panel

This panel combines two popular tests to help evaluate risk for cardiovascular disease, heart attack, or stroke.  This package includes a Lipid Panel and a C-Reactive Protein High Sensitivity test.

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.

Turnaround time for the Basic Heart Health Panel is typically 1 business day.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.

Requirements:

Oral contraceptives, IUDs, pregnancy, and menstruation may raise hs-CRP levels.  Levels are lowest during ovulation.

A stable diet is recommended for 2-3 weeks prior to specimen collection.

Fasting is not required.  However, fasting for 12-14 hours is recommended in cases where triglyceride levels are being used to aid in identifying conditions such as familial hypercholesterolemia (an inherited genetic disorder), early onset heart disease, pancreatitis, or hypertriglyceridemia.  People with triglyceride levels over 800 mg may still need to fast for accurate LDL calculation.
