In the United States, someone has a heart attack every 34 seconds and someone dies of heart disease every 60 seconds. Half of all cardiac events occur in people with normal to low cholesterol levels and even while taking statin therapy, there is a 70% risk of having a cardiac event. Research from Journal of the American Medical Association, Journal of Internal Medicine, and Circulation confirm that we can finally predict the risk of heart disease, even if symptoms do not present themselves, and in patients with no previous history of heart disease. While low-density lipoprotein (LDL) is often called, “the bad cholesterol,” oxLDL is a more reliable indicator of plaque formation in arteries.8 Oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL) is LDL that has been damaged by free radicals.3 It increases inflammation and increases lipid deposits in the arterial wall, making it a key player in the progression of atherogenesis.4 oxLDL has been elevated in all stages of atherosclerosis, including early atherogenesis and hypertension, coronary and peripheral artery diseases, acute coronary syndromes, and stroke.4-6 Biomarkers measured Apo A1 Apo B HDL Homocysteine hs-CRP LDL LDL Calculation Lp(a) Lp-PLA2 MPO NT-proBNP ox-LDL sdLDL Total Cholesterol Triglycerides Call office to schedule lab
