Understanding Extended Lipid Profile in Chennai

What is Extended Lipid Profile in Chennai?

An Extended Lipid Profile gives detailed insights into different types of cholesterol and fats in your blood, going beyond the standard lipid profile. Available at an affordable price in Chennai with Tata 1mg labs, this profile provides a better understanding of your heart health and tells about the risks of heart disease and stroke. In addition to all the goodness of the lipid profile, an extended lipid profile includes vital biomarkers, also known as cardiac risk markers such as Lipoprotein A, homocysteine, and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP). Elevated levels of these markers may indicate an increased risk of heart disease. 

The doctor may recommend extended lipid profile testing for Individuals with a family history of cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, or hypertension to comprehensively assess their specific risk factors. If previous lipid profile results showed abnormalities or borderline values, an extended lipid profile can provide a more detailed evaluation to guide treatment decisions. Overnight fasting (8-12 hours) is required before going for a Extended Lipid Profile. However, drinking water is acceptable.

Lipid Profile

The Lipid Profile assesses the level of specific fat molecules called lipids in the blood and helps determine the risk of heart ailments. This test determines the amount of different types of lipids, including total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, and triglycerides. Lipids play a pivotal role in the functioning of the body. They are crucial components of the cell membranes and hormones, provide cushioning, and are a storehouse of energy. Any alterations in the lipid levels may lead to potential heart ailments, making their monitoring crucial.

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.

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. This test can help identify individuals who are at high risk, enabling early intervention to prevent future complications.

Serum Homocysteine

A Serum Homocysteine measures your blood levels of homocysteine that serves in the body as an intermediate in the metabolism of methionine and cysteine. Methionine is an essential amino acid and antioxidant that synthesizes proteins. Cysteine is a nonessential amino acid synthesized from methionine. It reduces inflammation, increases communication between immune cells, and increases liver health.

The human body generally has low levels of homocysteine. This is because our body uses vitamins B12, B6, and folic acid (also called folate or vitamin B9) to break down homocysteine rapidly, convert it into other compounds, and transport it to our body. However, high levels can damage blood vessels and increase the risk of heart attacks, damage to arteries, and brain stroke.
