Heart Health Panel
The Basic Heart Health Panel is a test used to uncover risk factors that may increase a patient’s risk of developing cardiovascular disease, like hypertension (high blood pressure), high cholesterol, and high blood glucose levels.
The Heart Health Test should be used in conjunction with a comprehensive health panel.
- C-Reactive Protein (CRP), which is a High Sensitivity test for inflammation in and around the heart, a sign of cardiovascular disease.
- Homocysteine, which evaluates the risk of coronary heart disease, atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), and other cardiovascular diseases.
