Advanced CardioMetabolic Test

The Cardiometabolic Serum from Doctor’s Data measures:

  • Traditional cholesterol markers: Total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, TGls 
  • Advanced lipoprotein testing measuring size, distribution, and number of the most highly atherogenic apolipoprotein B-containing lipoproteins, considered the real LDL culprits: oxidised LDL, small dense LDL and lipoprotein (a) which have been shown to have a greater predictive power than LDL alone. These are irrespective of TG levels which is important as calculated LDL and VLDL cholesterol values may be markedly underestimated with plasma TG are high.
  • Metabolic markers: fasting glucose, insulin and 1,5-anhydroglucitol (Glycomark®) – a marker of short-term glycaemic control. 
  • Primary adipokines associated with insulin sensitivity and hepatic fatty acid metabolism: leptin and adiponectin.
  • Inflammatory markers: Homocysteine, lipoprotein-associated phospholipase-A2 (PLAC®) and eCRP. CVD is an inflammatory condition.
  • Kidney function: Cystatin C to assess glomerular filtration.
  • Key ratios are also presented.
