Cardiac Risk Markers Profile

Cardiac Risk Markers Profile

Cardiac Risk Markers Profile Test is a group of tests and health factors that have been proven to indicate a person's chance of having a cardiovascular event such as a heart attack or stroke. They have been refined to indicate the degree of risk: slight, moderate, or high. Homocysteine, Apolipoproteins, Lipoprotein A, Apo B/ Apo A1 Ratio, Lipid profile and Hs CRP are measured to evaluate the risk of Coronary Artery Disease.

The lipid profile is used to help determine an individual's risk of heart disease and to help make decisions about what treatment may be best if there is borderline or high risk. Depending on the results and other risk factors, treatment options may involve lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise or lipid-lowering medications such as statins.
