A1b Blood Test Overview

Apolipoproteins are proteins that attach to the lipids to transport the cholesterol through the blood. Two types of Apolipoproteins are mainly measured, Apolipoprotein A and Apolipoprotein B. Apolipoprotein A is mainly attached to HDL (good cholesterol) and mainly helps to eliminate the bad cholesterol from the blood. Apolipoprotein B attaches to LDL (bad cholesterol) and contributes to heart diseases by leading to formation of plaques or clogging of arteries.

Frequently Asked Questions

a1b blood test can help predict cardiovascular risk in patients. It gives a more detailed idea of the risk of heart diseases than the routine cholesterol screening. Test can be advised under the following conditions:

  • Family history of early age heart diseases.

a1b blood test measures Apo-B/Apo-A ratio in blood

During a1b blood test blood sample is taken from a vein in your arm, using a small needle. After the needle is inserted, a small amount of blood will be collected into a test tube or vial. You may feel a  little sting when the needle goes in or out. This usually takes less than five minutes.

High levels of Apo A may reduce the risk of heart diseases, strokes and peripheral vascular disorders. Low levels may increase the risk of heart attacks and stroke. Low levels may also occur due to certain inherited apolipoprotein deficiencies. High levels of Apo B can lead to cholesterol being deposited in the arterial walls which causes thickening or clogging of the arterial walls also known as "artherosclerosis". This disrupts the flow of blood to the heart and other vital organs. This increases the risk of heart diseases, strokes, and other peripheral arterial diseases. Low levels may mean reduced risk of heart diseases. Low levels may also occur due to Apo-B deficiencies as seen in Tangier's disease or fish eye disease. High B/A1 ratio increases the risk of heart diseases. Low ratio may reduce the risk of cardiac diseases and stroke. Apo-B/A1 ratio is a more specific test that gives a clearer picture of the risk of heart diseases as compared to routine cholesterol tests.
