Heart Disease Risk Blood Test
A convenient home test that looks at the main risk factors for heart disease, including cholesterol and high sensitivity CRP, a measure of damaging inflammation.
Heart disease risk is based on your general health, lifestyle and family history of the disease. This test measures your ratio of HDL (good) cholesterol to LDL (bad) cholesterol; triglycerides, a measure of fat in your blood; and CRP-hs, a marker for inflammation in the body. High LDL cholesterol coupled with inflamed arteries can be a risk factor for developing heart disease.

CRP levels can be affected by infection, inflammation, and illness. If you are taking this test because you have recently developed symptoms or they are worsening you should discuss these with your doctor. We suggest taking your test when any short-term change in your symptoms have settled. Fasting is optional for this test. Eating fatty foods might affect the results of a small number of blood tests so we may advise a retest when you are fasted. If you are interested in your triglyceride or LDL levels, then we do recommend fasting.
