Details
Who should take the test?

This test is recommended for individuals seeking a comprehensive evaluation of their cardiovascular health, particularly those with a family history of heart disease or other risk factors. It is especially valuable for uncovering elevated Lipoprotein (a) levels, a crucial marker often disregarded in standard cholesterol tests, which are linked to heightened risks of cardiovascular diseases like heart attacks and strokes.

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.

Samples for our tests are collected in the privacy of your own home. Both we and our partner laboratories (which may be contracted by us to conduct some or all analyses of your test) take customer privacy very seriously.

You will be the sole person with access to this information, and we guarantee that we will not disclose your information to any unauthorized third parties. Additionally, all samples will be disposed of after analysis. Both our Verisana portal for registering kits and receiving results as well as our CLIA-certified partner laboratories are fully HIPAA-compliant.

Test measures
For the Lipoprotein Test we analyze:
  • Lipoprotein (a)
Lipoprotein (a)

Lipoprotein (a), commonly known as Lp(a), resembles LDL (low-density lipoprotein) and is often referred to as ‘bad cholesterol’. It comprises an LDL-like particle bonded to a specific protein known as apolipoprotein (a). While naturally present in the bloodstream, elevated levels of Lp(a) pose a significant risk factor for cardiovascular diseases.

Unlike other cholesterol indicators, Lp(a) levels are predominantly influenced by genetics rather than diet and lifestyle. Elevated Lp(a) levels can foster the accumulation of arterial plaques, promoting atherosclerosis and heightening the susceptibility to heart attacks and strokes.

Symptoms
Our Lipoprotein Test is suitable for those who:
  • have family history of heart disease
  • experience chest pain
  • have high blood pressure
  • are smokers
  • have issues with obesity

Any Questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this test. Your question is missing? Please contact us at:

What exactly is Lipoprotein (a)?

Lipoprotein (a) is a type of lipoprotein that consists of a cholesterol particle attached to a protein called apolipoprotein (a). It's similar to LDL cholesterol but has an additional protein component.

Why is Lipoprotein (a) important to measure?

Lipoprotein (a) levels are associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases, including heart attacks and strokes. Monitoring Lp(a) levels can provide valuable insights into an individual's cardiovascular health beyond standard cholesterol tests.

Who should consider getting a Lipoprotein (a) Test?

Individuals with a family history of heart disease, especially those with premature cardiovascular events, should consider this test. Additionally, individuals with other risk factors for heart disease, such as high LDL cholesterol or hypertension, may benefit from Lp(a) testing.

Can Lipoprotein (a) levels be lowered?

While there are currently no specific medications or lifestyle changes proven to significantly reduce Lp(a) levels, managing other cardiovascular risk factors such as high LDL cholesterol, smoking cessation, regular exercise, and a healthy diet can help mitigate overall cardiovascular risk.

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.
