Understanding Apolipoprotein - A1 in Kattupakkam


What is Apolipoprotein - A1 in Kattupakkam?

An Apolipoprotein - A1 test measures the amount of apolipoprotein A1, a protein in your body. This test helps determine the potential health risks related to cardiovascular (heart and blood vessels) disease in an individual. By providing crucial insights into your heart’s condition, it aids in early detection and prevention of possibly serious health complications.

What does Apolipoprotein - A1 measure?

An Apolipoprotein - A1 test helps check the levels of Apolipoprotein A1 in your blood. Apolipoprotein A1 is the major protein for the high-density lipid (HDL), also known as “good” cholesterol and helps in its transport. Apo A1 helps the HDL to take up cholesterol from the tissues and is bound by receptors in the liver where the cholesterol is destroyed. Assessing the levels of Apolipoprotein A1 directly reflects the high-density lipoprotein levels. In this way, apolipoprotein A can help to lower your risk for cardiovascular disease.
