CardioPro ADVANCED

Heart attacks and heart disease are among the leading causes of preventable deaths every year, and millions of Americans are affected directly and indirectly by them. Almost 75% of heart attack patients fall within recommended targets for LDL cholesterol.

Giving you a complete picture of your cardiovascular state, The CardioPro Advanced Cardiac Analysis makes it easy to properly diagnose heart diseases, and attempts to prevent those diseases from occurring by reviewing lab tests important to your cardiovascular health. Consult with your physician on how to use your results to understand your hearts current condition and help protect it.

Panel Breakdown
  • Lipid Panel - measures fats and fatty substances that are important elements of cells used as a source of energy by your body. Helps to assess risk of cardiovascular
  • CRP, hs - a protein that increases in the blood with inflammation. It helps assess risk of developing cardiovascular disease and can be used with other cardiac risk markers to provide added information about heart disease risk.
  • Homocysteine - helps determine if you are folate-deficient or vitamin B12-deficient, and is used to determine if you are at increased risk of heart attack or stroke
  • Lipoprotein (a) - provides additional information about your risk of developing heart disease. Is used to identify an elevated level of lipoprotein (a) as a possible risk factor in the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD).
  • Apo Lipoprotein A-1 - a protein that has a specific role in the metabolism of lipids and is the main protein component in HDL, the "good cholesterol"). Determines whether or not you have an adequate level of apo A-I, especially if you have a low level of high-density lipoprotein (HDL-C), and looks at your risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD)
  • Apo Lipoprotein B - a protein that is involved in the metabolism of lipids and is the main protein constituent of lipoproteins such as very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL, the "bad cholesterol"). Concentrations of apo B tend to mirror those of LDL-C. It help evaluate your risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD) and sometimes can help monitor treatment for high cholesterol or to help diagnose a rare inherited apolipoprotein B (apo B) deficiency
  • Insulin - a major fat storing hormone that helps transport glucose, the body's main source of energy, from the blood to within cells
  • NT-ProBNP – primarily used to help detect, diagnose, and evaluate the severity of congestive heart failure (CHF). It can be used, along with other cardiac biomarker tests, to detect heart stress and damage
  • Lp-PLA2 (PLAC TEST) - an enzyme that appears to play a role in the inflammation of blood vessels and is thought to help promote atherosclerosis. This FDA approved test is typically used to evaluate an individual who is at a moderate to elevated risk for CHD or stroke. It helps determine your risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD), including your risk of coronary heart disease (CHD), and ischemic stroke.
  • Vitamin D, 25-OH - used to determine if you have a vitamin D deficiency. Looks at if bone weakness, bone malformation, or abnormal metabolism of calcium (reflected by abnormal calcium, phosphorus, PTH) is occurring as a result of a deficiency or excess of vitamin D
