Advanced Lipid Testing

Heart disease is not just a result of high cholesterol, but of many other factors, including high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, smoking, genetics (family history), and sedentary lifestyle. But where cholesterol is a concern, it’s also not enough to know just the traditional “total cholesterol” levels or comparative levels of “good” and “bad” cholesterol. It is important to know the number of cholesterol particles in each subtype along with their size and configuration. It’s important to know the contribution of inflammation, impaired sugar metabolism (insulin and free fatty acids), and oxidative stress. This is why we do Advanced Lipid Testing by Health Diagnostics Laboratory.
