CV Health™


Identify and Monitor Patients at Risk for Cardiovascular Disease

What are the CV Health profiles (CV Health or CV Health Plus Genomics)?

The CV Health Profiles are comprehensive evaluations of cardiovascular biomarkers featuring an advanced lipid profile that utilizes Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) fractionation technology, inflammatory biomarkers, and a novel Insulin Resistance Score. Both CV Health profiles evaluate:

  • Lipid Markers
    • LDL, HDL, Total Cholesterol, Triglycerides
    • LDL-Particle Number and Size
    • HDL-Particle Number and Size
    • Lp(a)
  • Independent Risk Factors
    • High Sensitivity CRP (hs-CRP)
    • Lp-PLA2 (PLAC)
    • Fibrinogen
    • Homocysteine
  • Insulin Resistance Score by Lipid Fractionation, combining:
    • Small LDL-Particle Number
    • LDL Size
    • Large VLDL-Particle Number
    • VLDL Size
    • Large HDL-Particle Number
    • HDL Size

This test is useful for patients with :

  • Have a family history of heart disease
  • Are experiencing premature cardiovascular disease
  • Have abnormal serum lipids
  • Suffer from obesity and/or diabetes
  • Smoke
  • Are physically inactive
