CardioPro® BASIC

Although a routine lipid panel is vital in understanding a potential risk for cardiovascular disease, it may not be sufficient alone, in that it doesn’t provide a well-rounded picture of your cardiovascular state.

There are several risk factors for heart diseases, such as:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Tobacco use
  • Physical inactivity
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Unhealthy diet
  • Obesity
  • Family history of cardiovascular disease
  • Raised blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Raised blood sugar (diabetes mellitus)
  • Raised blood cholesterol (hyperlipidemia)

Nearly 50% of all heart attacks and strokes occur in patients with what is considered normal cholesterol levels.

As a sound baseline test, our CardioProBasic panel provides a more in depth insight into the various factors that play a role in determining the health of your heart. Understand how your heart is functioning with your easy to read CardioProBasic results, and consult with your physician to get your heart to its peak state!  As a sound baseline test, our CardioProBasic panel provides a more in depth insight into the various factors that play a role in determining the health of your heart.

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 disease
  • 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
