Understanding Apolipoprotein - B in New Delhi


What is Apolipoprotein - B in New Delhi?

An Apolipoprotein - B test measures the amount of apolipoprotein B in your blood. This test is performed to provide valuable insights into an individual’s heart health by evaluating your risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD) such as heart attack, and stroke.

What does Apolipoprotein - B measure?

The Apolipoprotein B test is used to evaluate the level of Apolipoprotein B in your blood. It is a type of protein that aids in the transportation of fat and cholesterol throughout the body. Apo B serves as the primary protein component of lipoproteins such as very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL), low-density lipoprotein (LDL), and chylomicrons. It binds to LDL or “bad” cholesterol, causing plaque accumulation in the blood vessels. This can lead to the development and progression of cardiovascular disease that can be life-threatening if left untreated.
