From the expert

Everybody has a different level of risk of developing heart disease. This is based on your general health, lifestyle and if you have a family history of the disease. This check looks at important risk factors factors that may lead to heart disease in the future. It measures your cholesterol, specifically, your ratio of HDL (good) cholesterol to LDL (bad) cholesterol. A high ratio (above 20%) is protective against heart disease.

Triglycerides are a measure of the actual fat in your blood and High Sensitivity C Reactive Protein is a marker for inflammation in the body. High LDL cholesterol coupled with inflamed arteries is thought to be a dangerous combination, which can lead to deposits of plaque on artery walls.

Lipoprotein (a) is a genetic variation of LDL (bad) cholesterol. A high level of Lp(a) is a significant risk factor for the premature development of fatty deposits in arteries. Apolipoproteins (Apo's) are the proteins which attach themselves to the fats in our blood. High levels of Apo A appears to be protective against heart disease, whereas high levels of Apo B is represents a higher risk of heart disease.
