This test examines a series of blood markers relating to cardiovascular and metabolic health. This includes a diverse lipids panel including Triglycerides, Total, HDL, LDL, and VLDL Cholesterol, the metabolic markers Insulin and hemoglobin A1C, and C-reactive protein, which can be elevated with ongoing systemic inflammation.
Health Analysis personal test kits can be used in the privacy of your own home. The process involves taking a small bloodspot sample, with use of a near painless lancet. This sample is then sent to a CLIA-Certified lab in the United States for detailed analysis. Packaging and a pre-paid shipping label (from USA addresses only) are provided in each test kit. Within days of the lab receiving your sample, it will be analyzed, and you will receive a personalized report on the results.
Please note, this test is not available in CA, MD, and NY.
Test Sample Used:
This Test Examines:
Total C: Total cholesterol count.
HDL: High Density Lipoproteins, also commonly regarded as the cardioprotective ("good") cholesterol.
LDL: Low Density Lipoproteins, also commonly referred to as "bad" cholesterol as it may promote cholesterol deposits in the arteries.
VLDL: Very Low Density Lipoproteins, which like LDL is regarded as another potentially "bad" form of cholesterol.
Insulin: An important metabolic hormone that is responsible for assisting the transport of glucose into cells.
hbA1c: Hemoglobin A1c. This provides some assessment of the average level of sugar in the blood over a period of 2-3 months.
hsCRP: High-sensitivity C-reactive protein. This is regarded as a primary marker of systemic inflammation in the body.
