Understanding Cardiac Risk Markers in Bangalore


What is Cardiac Risk Markers in Bangalore?

The Cardiac Risk Markers is a group of blood tests used to assess the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack or stroke. Available at an affordable price with Tata 1mg labs in Bangalore, these tests measure various markers in the blood that indicate the presence of inflammation, damage to the heart muscle, or other factors associated with heart disease. High levels of these markers may indicate an increased risk of cardiovascular events. The results of a Cardiac Risk Markers test help doctors assess an individual’s overall risk for a cardiovascular disease and tailor treatment accordingly. 

A Cardiac Risk Markers test is usually recommended as a part of routine health screenings, especially for individuals with risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, smoking, or a family history of heart disease. Also, it can be done when an individual experiences symptoms suggestive of heart disease or cardiovascular problems, such as chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations, or other cardiac symptoms. Overnight fasting of 8 to 12 hours is required for this test. However, drinking water is acceptable. 

What does Cardiac Risk Markers measure?

Contains 5 tests

A Cardiac Risk Markers test measures the specific indicators called cardiac markers in the blood that can signify potential risks to heart health or cardiovascular problems. These markers provide valuable insights into an individual's risk of developing heart disease or experiencing cardiovascular events. 

A Cardiac Risk Markers test includes a highly sensitive C-reactive protein test which helps indicate heart disease by detecting inflammation within the body, particularly in the blood vessels. Also, it includes testing for apolipoproteins and lipoproteins which are the essential components involved in transporting lipids (fats) through the blood. They play a vital role in the metabolism, transport, and regulation of cholesterol and other fats in the body. Their involvement is key in indicating potential heart problems.

hsCRP (High Sensitive CRP)

An hsCRP (High Sensitive CRP) test is a state-of-the-art biochemical marker to predict potential risks of future diseases. This test is more sensitive than the standard CRP test and can also detect lower CRP levels in the blood. Its accuracy in predicting cardiovascular issues, autoimmune disorders, and other health issues makes it an excellent test to detect asymptomatic conditions with limited diagnosis.

Apolipoprotein - A1

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.

Apolipoprotein B/A1 Ratio

An Apolipoprotein B/A1 Ratio test helps predict the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in individuals at high risk, such as those who are obese, have a family history of heart disease, have high cholesterol, or have had similar health issues in the past. Apolipoprotein A1 is the primary protein associated with HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol), and its increased concentrations are associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. Apolipoprotein B is the primary protein associated with LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) and other lipid molecules. An increase in LDL cholesterol is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Therefore, an Apolipoprotein B/A1 Ratio test is a key marker of developing potential cardiovascular disease (CVD) or heart-related ailments.

Apolipoprotein - B

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.

Lipoprotein A

The Lipoprotein A test measures the amount of lipoprotein A (Lp-A) particles in your blood. Lipoprotein A is a mixture of Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and a protein called apolipoprotein a. Lp-A levels are largely determined by genetics. Lp-A levels are not significantly affected by diet, exercise, or lifestyle changes, unlike other types of cholesterol. That is why testing for Lp-A is essential, particularly for individuals with a strong family history of cardiovascular (heart or blood vessel) disease as it is considered an independent risk factor for heart attack and stroke. This test can help identify individuals who are at high risk, enabling early intervention to prevent future complications.
