You Must Know
Test Name: Kh Cardiac Risk Profile
Sample Type: Blood
These markers are often measured as part of a comprehensive assessment to evaluate an individual's cardiovascular risk and overall heart health. It's important to note that the interpretation of these biomarkers and the specific thresholds for risk can vary depending on an individual's overall health, medical history, and other factors. Therefore, it's essential to consult with a healthcare professional for a personalized assessment and guidance on managing cardiovascular health.
Sugar (Glucose): Monitoring blood sugar levels is crucial for individuals with diabetes, as high blood sugar levels can contribute to the development and progression of heart disease.
Urea: Urea levels in the blood can be an indicator of kidney function. Kidney health is closely linked to cardiovascular health, as kidney dysfunction can lead to an increased risk of heart disease.
Creatinine: Like urea, creatinine is a marker of kidney function, and impaired kidney function can contribute to cardiovascular problems.
Lipid Profile: This includes measurements of various types of lipids, such as total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, and triglycerides. Dyslipidemia (abnormal lipid levels) is a significant risk factor for atherosclerosis and heart disease.
Apolipoprotein A1 and Apolipoprotein B: These are proteins involved in lipid transport in the blood. Apo A1 is associated with HDL particles, while Apo B is associated with LDL particles. Monitoring these apolipoproteins can provide additional information about cardiovascular risk.
Lipoprotein: This refers to various lipoprotein particles in the blood, such as LDL (low-density lipoprotein), HDL (high-density lipoprotein), and VLDL (very low-density lipoprotein). These particles carry cholesterol and triglycerides and play a crucial role in atherosclerosis.
Homocysteine: Elevated levels of homocysteine are associated with an increased risk of heart disease. High homocysteine levels can contribute to damage in the blood vessel walls.
Hs CRP (High-sensitivity C-reactive protein): Elevated levels of hs-CRP indicate inflammation in the body, and chronic inflammation is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
Fibrinogen: Fibrinogen is a protein involved in blood clotting. Elevated levels can contribute to the formation of blood clots, which may lead to heart attacks or strokes.
