Description

Standard cholesterol testing only gives you a piece of the picture, leaving many people with “normal” cholesterol numbers unaware that they are still at risk for a heart attack.

50% of people who have a heart attack have normal cholesterol levels (PER NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF HEALTH)

The National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) introduced new risk factors that are responsible for cardiovascular incidents and stroke. These risk factors can only be identified with advanced lipoprotein testing.

According to the National Cholesterol Education Program guidelines, 50% of people who have a heart attack have normal cholesterol levels. Cholesterol is carried through the body in little balls called lipoproteins. It is the lipoproteins, not the cholesterol inside them, that leads to clogging your arteries.

NCEP NEW RISK FACTORS:

Small, dense LDL: these atherogenic particles are easily oxidized and penetrate the arterial endothelium to form plaque. Lp(a): this small, dense LDL is involved in thrombosis.
RLP (Remnant Lipoprotein): is very atherogenic, has a similar composition and density of plaque, is believed to be a building block of plaque and does not need to be oxidized like other LDL particle.

HDL2b: positively correlates with heart health because it is an indicator of how well excess lipids are removed.
