Test measures
For the Essential Apolipoprotein Test we analyze:
  • APO B
  • APO A1
APO B

Apolipoprotein B (Apo B) is pivotal in lipid metabolism, facilitating their transportation throughout the bloodstream to various body sites. While lipids are essential for cellular integrity and hormone production, excess amounts can contribute to arterial plaques, leading to narrowed vessels (atherosclerosis) and heightened risk of heart attack. Elevated Apo B levels are linked to increased lipid levels and cardiovascular disease risk.

Conditions affecting lipoprotein production or liver-based synthesis and packaging can lower Apo B levels. Decreased levels may result from factors such as estrogen, lovastatin, niacin, or thyroxine medications, hyperthyroidism, malnutrition, severe illness/surgery, or cirrhosis.

Conversely, factors like diabetes, androgen, beta blocker, diuretic, or progestin medications, hypothyroidism, or pregnancy can elevate Apo B levels temporarily.

APO A1

Apolipoprotein A1 (ApoA1) stands as a pivotal player in the intricate realm of cholesterol transport and metabolism, predominantly residing within High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL), renowned as ‘good cholesterol.’ Its primary task revolves around the extraction of surplus cholesterol from cells, steering it toward the liver for disposal or potential reabsorption.

The significance of ApoA1 unfolds in two key domains: first, in the facilitation of HDL formation and the critical process of reverse cholesterol transport, crucial for the maintenance of optimal cholesterol levels and the deterrence of arterial plaque accumulation; secondly, in the realm of cardiovascular risk assessment, where monitoring ApoA1 levels offers a lens into the likelihood of cardiovascular disease onset. Elevated ApoA1 levels typically correlate with diminished heart disease risk, whereas diminished levels may signal an increased susceptibility.

Anomalies in ApoA1 levels, whether excessively low or high, entail distinct implications: a deficiency in ApoA1 may heighten the risk of coronary artery disease and other cardiovascular ailments, indicating potential issues with HDL functionality or imbalance relative to LDL and total cholesterol, while elevated ApoA1 levels generally align with a lowered cardiovascular disease risk, portraying a protective facet of heart health.

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

In order to draw more blood from your finger, begin by warming your hand under running warm water for a few moments and gently rotate your arm to enhance blood circulation. When it's time to prick your finger, aim for the side of the finger rather than the tip. It's often easier to use the middle or ring finger of your non-dominant hand. To prevent any involuntary withdrawal during the piercing, place your finger firmly on a stable surface. Finally, apply a gentle squeeze and massage towards the fingertip to encourage blood flow.
