Clinical Information:
Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in the United States with an estimated 1.5 million heart attacks and 0.5 million strokes occurring annually, many in individuals who have no prior symptoms. Prevention of ischemic cardiovascular events is key. Risk factors including age, smoking status, hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol, and HDL cholesterol, are used by physicians to identify individuals likely to have an ischemic event.
 
Reference Value:
See details from individual unit test
 
Interpretation:
Lipids are most commonly measured to assess cardiovascular risk. Maintaining desirable concentrations of lipids lowers the risk of heart attacks or strokes. Establishing appropriate treatment strategies and lipid goals require the results for each component of a lipid profile be considered in context with other risk factors including, age, sex, smoking status, family and personal history of heart disease.
