High-Risk Heart Health Lipid and Lp(a) Panel

Do you have a personal history of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) as a young adult, or a strong family history of ASCVD? Having high LDL cholesterol, triglycerides (TG), or lipoprotein (a) increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, especially for those with a history of ASCVD.

Most people with high levels of cholesterol and lipoprotein(a) don't have any symptoms and don't know they are affected. High Lp(a) levels run in families as they are genetically determined. Because Lp(a) levels are determined by your genes, they do not change throughout your lifetime. They are usually unaffected by your diet, lifestyle or environment. This means once you’ve had your Lp(a) level measured, you won’t usually need to have it checked again.

This test panel measures your cholesterol, triglyceride, and lipoprotein(a) levels to determine your risk for, and allow for intervention in helping to lower the risk of, Myocardial Infarction (MI), heart attack, heart disease, and/or stroke.

About the Test

This panel is an extended lipid panel that measures total cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol (calculated), cholesterol/HDL ratio (calculated), non-HDL cholesterol (calculated), and lipoprotein(a) to determine your risk for heart attack, heart disease, stroke, and other diseases of the blood vessels for those with a history of premature ASCVD not explained by major risk factors.

If the results show you have higher than normal levels of cholesterol, lipoprotein(a), or other abnormal results, you and your healthcare provider can work together to determine next steps.
