Details
Who should take the test?

When you have a personal or family history of heart disease or high cholesterol and triglyceride levels, getting your Apo B levels tested on a regular basis helps you to evaluate your risk of developing a CVD. But Apo B can do more. It also helps you monitor the effects of your treatment for high cholesterol.

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)

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 may be decreased with any condition that affects lipoprotein production or affects its 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

My Apo-B level is high, what can I do?

Elevated levels of Apo-B are associated with high amounts of lipids. The best way to lower high APO-B levels are changes in diet and exercise and thus lower the risk for cardiovascular diseases.

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.
