The “Cardiac Risk Markers-Advanced” test is a diagnostic test package offered by Redcliffelabs that includes a combination of 6 tests designed to assess various risk markers associated with cardiovascular health. The results are typically available within 15 hours. Here’s a breakdown of the tests included in this panel:
Significance of the Package: The Cardiac Risk Markers-Advanced test evaluates specific markers that provide insights into cardiovascular health. Elevated levels of certain markers, such as Apo B, hs-CRP, and homocysteine, can indicate an increased risk of cardiovascular events. On the other hand, higher levels of Apo A and favorable Apo B/A1 ratios are associated with a lower risk.
These markers help healthcare providers assess the overall risk of heart disease and make informed decisions about prevention and treatment strategies. It’s important to note that cardiovascular risk is influenced by a combination of factors, including lifestyle, genetics, and other medical conditions. The results of this test can be used alongside other clinical information to develop a comprehensive picture of cardiovascular health.
As with any medical test, interpreting the results and making decisions about treatment or lifestyle changes should be done in consultation with a qualified healthcare professional. They can provide personalized guidance based on individual health history, risk factors, and test results.
