Details
Who should take the test?

If you have a personal or family history of heart disease or high cholesterol and triglyceride levels, routinely measuring your Apo B levels can aid in assessing your susceptibility to cardiovascular disease. Furthermore, Apo B serves as a valuable tool for tracking the effects of your high cholesterol treatment.

Decreased levels of Apo B can be caused by:

  • Drugs like estrogen (in post-menopausal women), lovastatin, niacin, or thyroxine
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Malnutrition
  • Severe illness/ surgery
  • Cirrhosis

Increased levels of Apo B can be caused by:

  • Diabetes
  • Drugs like androgens, beta blockers, diuretics or progestins (synthetic progesterone)
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Pregnancy (levels increase temporarily and decrease again after delivery)
How does it work?

Once your order has been processed, you will be sent a blood sample collection kit. You collect your sample from the comfort of your own home and send it right back to our CLIA-certified partner laboratory. We analyze your sample and inform you that your results have been uploaded to your confidential account on our secure website.

What guidance will I get along with my results?

Following the completion of the analysis, you will receive a lab report that includes explanations for the analyzed markers and details on potential symptoms linked to imbalances. Additionally, we strongly advise that you discuss the results you receive from us with your healthcare provider or practitioner.

Moreover, additional information can be found on our website, particularly within various test categories, “health conditions,” and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section. If you have any further inquiries, please feel free to reach out to us by sending an email to contact@verisana.com.

Test measures
For the Apo-B Test we analyze:
  • Apolipoprotein B (Apo-B)
APO B

Apolipoprotein B (Apo B) plays an important role in the metabolism of lipids. It combines with lipids to transport them throughout the bloodstream, delivering them to different locations within the body. Lipids are vital for cell membrane integrity, sex hormone production, and steroid production. In excess, however, they can lead to plaques in artery walls which narrow the vessels in a process called atherosclerosis. This atherosclerotic process then increases the risk of heart attack. Elevated levels of Apo B are therefore associated with high amounts of lipids and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD).

Apo B levels can be lowered due to any condition that impacts the production of lipoproteins or disrupts their synthesis and packaging in the liver.

Symptoms
You should check your Apo-B levels frequently if you:
  • have a family history of high cholesterol, high blood sugar or inflammation levels
  • have high blood pressure
  • smoke
  • are overweight

What exactly is the Apolipoprotein B Test?

The test is designed to measure Apo B levels in your blood, which can provide valuable information about your cardiovascular health, especially if you have a personal or family history of heart disease or high cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

Why should I consider getting my Apo B levels tested?

Routine Apo B level testing can help assess your risk of developing cardiovascular disease, particularly if you have a history of heart disease or elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels. It can also help monitor the effectiveness of your high cholesterol treatment.

What are some conditions that can lead to decreased Apo B levels?

Conditions that can cause decreased Apo B levels include the use of certain drugs like estrogen (in post-menopausal women), lovastatin, niacin, or thyroxine, hyperthyroidism, malnutrition, severe illness/surgery, and cirrhosis.

How often should I have my Apo B levels tested?

The frequency of Apo B level testing may vary depending on your specific health circumstances and the recommendations of your healthcare provider. It is typically done periodically as part of cardiovascular risk assessment and cholesterol management.

I am not getting enough blood from my finger, what can I do?

Prepare the blood draw well: Hold your hand a little longer under warm water and circle your arm to stimulate blood circulation. Prick the finger on the side, not directly on top of the fingertip. The middle or ring finger of the non-dominant hand is usually best. When piercing, place your finger on a firm surface to avoid unconscious pulling back. A light squeeze and massage towards the fingertip helps stimulate blood flow.
