NMR LipoProfile Test

Sample Report
Specimen Type: Blood


NMR LipoProfile Test

The NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) Lipoprofile is a cholesterol test which provides more information than a standard Lipid Panel.  This test includes measurements for Total Cholesterol, LDL, HDL, Triglycerides, Insulin Markers, Lipoprotein Particle Number and Size, and Lipoprotein Subfractions.

LDL Particle Number and size can help assess a person's risk for heart disease.  LDL, often known as the bad cholesterol, carries cholesterol through the blood stream and smaller denser LDL particles have a greater tendency to build up along arterial walls and form harmful plaque.  Plaque buildup increases the risk of blood clots and heart attacks.  In some people, Particle Size can be a greater indicator of risk for hearts disease than cholesterol levels.

The NMR Lipoprofile is typically ordered when someone requires more information than a standard Lipid Panel (cholesterol test) will provide.  This test is helpful for people who have a family history for heart attack or stroke or are taking medication to manage cholesterol.  This test is also ordered for people who have suffered a cardiac event but have normal cholesterol levels to help determine if another factor may be the cause.

 Turnaround time for the NMR Lipoprofile is typically 1-3 business days.

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.


The NMR LipoProfile requires fasting for 12 - 14 hours prior to going in for blood collection.
