This at-home lab test is for anyone interested in a more comprehensive look at heart health and preventing heart disease.
This test measures your total cholesterol, HDL, calculated LDL, triglycerides, and HbA1c levels
Cholesterol is necessary to make the cells in our body. We get cholesterol from two sources—our liver makes cholesterol, and we can also get it from eating certain animal-derived foods. Total cholesterol is the total pool of cholesterol in the body, which includes biomarkers explicitly measured like LDL, HDL, and triglycerides, as well as other smaller lipid molecules.
Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol is generally considered the "bad cholesterol" as high blood concentrations of this form of cholesterol can result in a lipid disorder, increasing the risk of heart disease. LDL cholesterol can deposit in arteries and lead to a condition known as atherosclerosis. LDL can be calculated mathematically using triglycerides, HDL, and total cholesterol values or measured directly—this test measures calculated LDL; however, The LDL value will not be able to be calculated if the total triglyceride concentration is greater than 400 mg/dL.
HDL, high-density lipoprotein, is considered the "good cholesterol" because it is able to carry cholesterol deposits away from arteries and back to the liver, where it can be broken down and cleared from the body.
Triglycerides are the primary form of fat in the blood. Excessive levels of triglycerides may lead to damage to organs such as the liver and pancreas and may increase the risk of heart disease and stroke.
Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), often referred to as A1c, is a measurement of the amount of glucose bound to the heme found in red blood cells. Blood glucose (commonly referred to as blood sugar) levels tested as a single measurement can vary significantly throughout the day based on many factors, including a recent meal or physical activity. A HbA1c measurement lets you know how well your blood sugar levels have been controlled over the past 90 days. For this reason, HbA1c testing gives a better representation of average blood sugar levels over time.
