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.
