Get insights in your in your metabolish and heart health by measuring key factors.
Lipids, such as cholesterol and triglycerides, are small fat-like substances in your body that reveal important information about your health. Excessive levels of "bad" LDL cholesterol can lead to the buildup of plaque in your arteries, increasing the risk of heart disease. Conversely, higher levels of "good" HDL cholesterol help remove LDL cholesterol, reducing the risk of heart disease. Since high cholesterol often shows no symptoms, it can easily go unnoticed. That's why it's important to know your numbers!
Triglycerides and cholesterol levels, specifically HDL and LDL, are important indicators of how our body processes fats. These levels are influenced by our diet, physical activity, and how our metabolism works overall. CRP (C-reactive protein) is a substance that plays a significant role in the development of a condition called atherosclerosis, which involves the buildup of plaque in our arteries. This protein affects processes like the recruitment of inflammatory cells and the absorption of cholesterol by certain cells called macrophages. By measuring a type of CRP called hsCRP, we can evaluate the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.Show lessShow more
