Coronary Risk Profile (Labcorp)
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. The most common type of heart disease is Coronary Heart Disease in which the arteries of the heart fail to deliver enough oxygen-rich blood. Most people with coronary heart disease experience no symptoms. Regular cardiovascular risk blood testing, especially for people with a family history of heart disease or one or more risk factors, can identify and monitor problems before they become life-threatening. Risk factors for cardiovascular disease include smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, being overweight, unhealthy diet, excessive alcohol use, and low levels of physical activity.
The coronary heart health testing panel includes:
- C-Reactive Protein High Sensitivity: An inflammation marker that is tied to the risk of heart attack and stroke.
- Lipid Panel: Measures total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, and Triglycerides.
- Lipoprotein a: A genetically determine marker for cardiovascular risk.
The results of these tests should be discussed with your doctor to determine the most appropriate lifestyle changes or medication. For more testing options please see our Heart Health category.
Turnaround for these tests is typically 2-5 business days.
