How much does it cost?

Please note – In addition to the price of tests, there is also a phlebotomy cost for the withdrawal and handling of your sample. This is a standard charge across all clinics. The cost of sample handling is £50, but this is discounted to £30 only if paid in advance. Please choose the pay later option to pay the full amount upon your arrival at the clinic or choose pay now in order to pay in advance and secure the discounted fee.

What can I learn from this test?

A Cardio Vascular Risk blood panel helps to identify particular types of fats and proteins found in the blood that could indicate whether or not you are in a higher-risk category.

What can I test?

Lipid Profile

A lipid profile looks into your cholesterol status, including your good (HDL) and bad (non-HDL) cholesterol, and triglyceride levels. The ratio of these fatty substances is a great first step in assessing your risk of cardiovascular disease (heart attacks and strokes). You can also use our test to monitor how simple lifestyle changes can reduce your risk over time. Cholesterol, known as a lipid, is a fatty substance in your blood. It plays an essential role in how your cells work, and in making vitamin D, bile acid, and vital hormones, such as testosterone and oestrogen.

Apolipoprotein A1 (APO A1)

Apo A-I levels may be used to help diagnose rare conditions that cause Apo A-I deficiencies, such as Tangier and fish eye disease.

Apolipoprotein B (APO B)

Apo B concentrations may also be used to monitor the effectiveness of lipid treatment as an alternative to non-HDL-C (non-HDL-C is the total cholesterol concentration minus the amount of HDL-cholesterol).

Lipoprotein (a) level

Lipoproteins are made of fat (lipids) and proteins and transport cholesterol and triglycerides in your blood. Lipoprotein(a) – also known as lp(a) – is a risk factor for heart disease, especially when LDL cholesterol is also raised. Lp(a) can accelerate the development of plaques forming in the arteries, which narrow and harden the arteries.

C Reactive Protein (CRP)

A c-reactive protein test measures the level of c-reactive protein (CRP) in a sample of your blood. CRP is a protein that your liver makes. Normally, you have low levels of c-reactive protein in your blood. Your liver releases more CRP into your bloodstream if you have inflammation in your body. High levels of CRP may mean you have a serious health condition that causes inflammation.

Homocysteine

Homocysteine is an amino acid used by the body to make protein and build and maintain tissue. Excessive homocysteine levels in the blood may increase the risk of stroke, certain types of heart disease, and disease of the blood vessels of the arms, legs and feet (peripheral artery disease).

Lp-PLA2 (PLAC) Test

The PLAC measures levels of the LpPLA2 enzyme, which is seen as an indicator for inflammation of the blood vessels, linked to an increase of plaque within the arteries. A PLAC blood test helps identify any early warning signs of the possibility of heart disease and stroke.
