Advanced Lipid Profile

There are a number of risk factors involved when evaluating your overall heart health. Some of these factors can be managed or controlled, and others cannot. An Advanced Lipid Profile test is used as part of an overall assessment to help determine your likelihood of developing cardiovascular disease. The results of the lipid profile are considered along with other known risk factors of heart disease to develop a plan of treatment and follow-up. By making lifestyle adjustments, such as healthy dietary choices, quitting smoking, and exercising regularly, you can reduce your overall risk for heart disease. For some patients, your cardiologist may recommend lipid-lowering medications such as statins.
