Understanding Extended Lipid Profile in Pune


What is Extended Lipid Profile in Pune?

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 Pune 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 an 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 an Extended Lipid Profile. However, drinking water is acceptable.

What does Extended Lipid Profile measure?

Contains 14 tests

An Extended Lipid Profile measures various parameters related to cholesterol and other fats in the blood, providing a more comprehensive assessment of cardiovascular health. 

This profile includes Apolipoprotein A1 and B serum, High-sensitivity C-reactive protein test (hs -CRP), serum homocysteine test, Lipid profile, and Lipoprotein A test. hs -CRP is a marker of inflammation in the body and high levels of hs-CRP are associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Homocysteine is an amino acid linked to increased risk of heart disease and stroke when present in high levels and this test helps evaluate cardiovascular risk and may guide treatment decisions. The lipid profile includes measurements of total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglycerides. These all are crucial indicators of cardiovascular health and risk. Furthermore, Lipoprotein A is a type of cholesterol particle associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Elevated Apolipoprotein B (ApoB), the primary protein component of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), and decreased Apolipoprotein A1 (ApoA1), the primary protein component of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

An Extended Lipid Profile aimed at providing a comprehensive evaluation of cardiovascular risk by assessing not only traditional lipid parameters but also inflammation and other risk factors.

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 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.

Serum Homocysteine

The Serum Homocysteine test 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.
