Advanced Cardiometabolic Testing


Product Description

Advanced Cardiometabolic Testing:

What do we test? And how is it different?

Lipid Panel – This is the basic testing you get with your cardiologist or GP and includes:

  • Total cholesterol
  • triglycerides
  • LDL
  • HDL

Then we look deeper:

Our advanced cardiometabolic testing looks deeper at the size, shape and number of the cholesterol particles (which is the actually important risk factor).

  • SdLDL-C
  • Lp(a)
  • ApoA-1
  • ApoB
  • LDL-P

We also look at inflammation markers and measure of possible plaque formation.

  • hs-CRP
  • LpPLA2
  • Homocysteine (related to MTHFR function and heart attack and stroke risk)
  • Fibrinogen
  • Uric Acid

Nutritional Assessment for Heart Health – I’m sure you have heard of taking fish oil? Do you want to know if you need to take it? We check your healthy vs unhealthy fats and whether you need to take more. 

  • Fatty Acid Omega Check
  • Vitamin D25
  • CoQ10

If your Cholesterol is high, or if it runs in your family, we can check your Cholesterol Balance which indicates whether you make more cholesterol in your liver, or whether  you are absorbing more in your food. This helps us determine the best course of therapy for you.
