Heart Blood Panel FAQ
What markers are checked in the Heart Blood Panel?
This blood panel checks the C-Reactive Protein (hs-CRP), Homocysteine and standard Lipid & Cholesterol levels.
Why is the Heart Blood Panel important?
The hs-CRP test is used in assessing the relative cardiovascular risk. Elevated levels imply high risk for cardiovascular disease. Homocysteine is an amino acid that is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease when elevated. The Lipids & Cholesterol component measures your lipid and cholesterol levels. Elevated numbers of the bad lipids are thought to increase the risk of heart disease and stroke.
