Advanced cholesterol lab testings explained in 90 seconds!

  • Have you ever had your cholesterol levels checked and received a clean bill of health? It's time to take a closer look at your heart health with NMR Lipid Profile testing. This advanced test measures the number of small LDL particles in your bloodstream, giving you a more accurate picture of your risk for cardiovascular disease.

  • In this test, LDL particle number is the key metric to pay attention to. A number less than 100 is ideal, while a number greater than 2000 is considered very high. This is because the more small LDL particles you have, the higher your risk for heart disease.

  • It's important to note that 50% of all heart attack patients have normal cholesterol levels. Total cholesterol is no longer considered the best indicator of heart health. That's why the NMR Lipid Profile is so important – it provides a more comprehensive understanding of your specific LDL particle size and number.
