Homocysteine may be ordered as part of a screen for people at high risk for heart attack or stroke. It may be useful in someone who has a family history of coronary artery disease but no other known risk factors, such as smoking, high blood pressure, or obesity
The creatine phosphokinase test ;measures the amount of creatine phosphokinase (CPK) present in the blood. The test is also known as a creatine kinase test, CPK test, or CK test.
Creatine phosphokinase is a specific enzyme found primarily in the heart, skeletal muscle, and brain tissues.
The creatine phosphokinase test is performed to assess damage to tissue in the brain, muscle tissue, or heart. When tissue is damaged, creatine phosphokinase leaks from tissue into the blood.
High-sensitivity CRP is thought by some experts to be a useful test for determining risk of CVD, heart attacks, and strokes and that hs-CRP can play a role in the evaluation process before a person develops one of these health problems. Some say that the best way to predict risk is to combine a good marker for inflammation, like hs-CRP, with the lipid profile. Several groups have recommended that this test be used for people who have a moderate risk of heart attack over the next 10 years.
Low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or “bad cholesterol,” is typically associated with an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. Lipoproteins are substances made up of protein and fat. LDLs can be separated by type and they include lipoprotein(a), or Lp(a). Increased amounts of Lp(a) in the body are associated with inflammation in the walls of the arteries. This can lead to changes in the blood vessels, including atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Although LDL in general is affected by both your lifestyle (exercise and diet) and family history, Lp(a) is typically determined by genetics and not lifestyle.
Apolipoprotein A-I (apo A-I) may be ordered, along with other lipid tests, as part of a profile to help determine a person’s risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD). It may be used as an alternative to a high-density lipoprotein (HDL) test, but it is not generally considered “better” or more informative than HDL and is not ordered routinely.
The apolipoprotein B (apo B) test is used, along with other lipid tests, to help determine an individual’s risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD).
This test is not used as a general population screen but may be ordered if a person has a family history of heart disease and/or high cholesterol and triglycerides (hyperlipidemia). It may be performed, along with other tests, to help diagnose the cause of abnormal lipid levels, especially when someone has elevated triglyceride levels.
Apo B is a protein that is involved in the metabolism of lipids and is the main protein constituent of lipoproteins such as very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL, the “bad cholesterol”). Concentrations of apo B tend to mirror those of LDL-C.
