The Cardiovascular-Basic test will screen and monitor risk factors of cardiovascular disease through a simple blood test. This blood test can identify the lifestyle issues that are affecting your health. You may have an elevated risk for developing a cardiovascular condition if these lifestyle factors are not adjusted to lower the risk. Proper management of cardiovascular risk factors can support your overall wellness and provide effective tools for improved lifestyle and longevity.
Lab Tests Direct will generate a “history” test report with your newest test results compared with previous test results. This will enable you to work with your health care practitioner to pursue the right treatment options and then track your progress along the way.
This test will measure –
VLDL – Very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol is produced in the liver and released into the bloodstream to supply body tissues with a type of fat (triglycerides). High levels of VLDL cholesterol have been associated with the development of plaque deposits on artery walls, which narrow the passage and restrict blood flow.
Fasting Triglycerides –Triglycerides are a type of fat (lipid) found in your blood. When you eat, your body converts any calories it doesn’t need to use right away into triglycerides. The triglycerides are stored in your fat cells. Later, hormones release triglycerides for energy between meals. If you regularly eat more calories than you burn, particularly “easy” calories like carbohydrates and fats, you may have high triglycerides (hypertriglyceridemia).
Total cholesterol – Total cholesterol is the total amount of cholesterol in your blood. Your total cholesterol includes low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or “bad”) cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein (HDL, or “good”) cholesterol.
LDL cholesterol –LDL (“bad”) cholesterol is the main “engine” of cholesterol build-up and blockage in your arteries.
HDL cholesterol –HDL (“good”) cholesterol helps prevent heart disease by removing cholesterol from your arteries and sending it to your liver for elimination.
