Frequently Asked Questions
Lipoproteins test is prescribed to understand how well the cholesterol is transported in the body. This gives a more detailed idea of the risk of heart diseases than the routine cholesterol screening and may help in early detection of potential cardiovascular problem. This may be done in cases of :
- Family history of early age heart diseases.
- LDL levels are found to be high despite medication
- Family history of hypercholesterolemia
- Blood vessel diseases with normal triglyceride and total cholesterol levels
- Self history of heart diseases with or without surgery.
lipoproteins test measures the amount of lipoprotein (a) component in the blood. This is a predictor of the risk of heart diseases.
During Lipoproteins 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 lipoprotein (a) levels lead to cholesterol being deposited in the arterial walls which causes thickening or clogging of the arterial walls also known as "atherosclerosis". 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. Lp (a) being a specific test gives a clearer picture of the risk of heart diseases as compared to routine cholesterol tests. Certain conditions may contribute to high lipoprotein levels such as uncontrolled type 2 diabetes, chronic kidney disorders, hypothyroidism and certain hormonal disorders.
