Overview


What is ELP?

Extended lipid profile is a comprehensive panel of tests that evaluates the level of lipids in your blood. This package is quite helpful when it comes to assessing your cardiac profile and risk of developing any heart disease in the near future, thereby helping you make informed decisions about your health. You can order this test as a routine check up or to trace the progress of your treatment. This package is quite beneficial for the patient with known risk factors or with a family history of cardiovascular events.

What does ELP Measure?

Following tests are a part of the extended lipid profile:


Apolipoprotein A1 &B Apo A1/ Apolipoprotein B ratio helps in evaluating your risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD); It is also used to monitor treatment for high cholesterol. This test is not widely used for a screening test but may be ordered if a person has a family history of heart disease and/or high cholesterol and triglycerides (hyperlipidemia).


High sensitive CRP:
High sensitive C reactive protein is a test that measures the amount of C reactive protein in the blood. The level of this marker is elevated in cases of inflammation in the body. This test can evaluate your risk of heart diseases such as coronary artery disease.

Lipid profile is a group of blood tests that detects the levels of different types of lipids present in the blood. A lipid profile measures cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides. It is done to screen for the risk of cardiovascular disease and to monitor patients who have risk factors for cardiovascular diseases.

The Homocysteine Test measures the levels of homocysteine in the blood. Homocysteine is an amino acid which at increased levels in the body can damage the inner lining of the blood vessels that increases the chances of blood clot formation. The Homocysteine Test measures the levels of homocysteine in the blood. The Homocysteine Test is performed to screen for heart attack and stroke, especially in people with no known risk factors but with a family history of cardiovascular diseases. This test also detects and diagnoses an inherited disease called homocystinuria in newborns and infants and even detects deficiency of Vitamin B6, B12, or Folic acid.

Lipoprotein A- is a protein that plays an important role in the transportation and metabolism of lipids and is the main protein component in high-density lipoprotein. Apo A-I is ordered in someone who has a personal or family history of abnormal lipid levels and/or premature cardio vascular disease. It may be ordered when your doctor is trying to determine the cause of a person's high cholesterol.
