Biomarker profiles

  • Heart Health
Total Triglycerides
Triglycerides are a type of fat which are the most common type of fat to circulate in the blood. When you consume fats or excess calories your liver produces triglycerides which are stored in fat cells or used for energy. High levels of triglycerides increases the risk for heart disease.
HDL (High-Density Lipoprotein)
High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) also known as the “good cholesterol” can help lower your risk to heart disease. HDL removes cholesterol put of the bloodstream by transporting it to the liver. Once it arrives in the liver it is broken down and excreted in the form of bile which is a digested fluid. Cholesterol is highly influenced by the foods that we eat and the amount of physical activity that we do.
C-Reaction Protein (CRP)
C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is a protein that is made in the liver and released into the bloodstream in response to inflammation. Therefore, the level of CRP will rise when there is inflammation in the body. Inflammation can occur due to a number of reasons and conditions such as infection, injury, highly active people, and diseases such as heart disease, cancer and rheumatoid arthritis.
Cholesterol
Cholesterol is a type of fat in the body which is made in the liver and found in some foods. Cholesterol plays a number of key functions such as building cell membranes which found in all cells and separates the internal environment from the cell from the outside environment. Cholesterol is also needed to make steroid hormones such as oestrogen, progesterone and Vitamin D. Measuring total cholesterol levels helps to determine your risk of heart disease, stroke and other metabolic diseases such as Type 2 diabetes.
Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL)
LDL cholesterol (low density lipoprotein) known as the “bad cholesterol” this the most dominating form of cholesterol found in your body. Having high levels of LDL cholesterol is a major risk factor for heart disease, stroke and other metabolic diseases such as Type 2 diabetes. When too much LDL cholesterol circulates around in your bloodstream it can stick to the blood vessel walls leading to arteriosclerosis which is a thickening or hardening of the arteries.
Non-High Density Lipoprotein (HDL)
Non-HDL cholesterol includes all the cholesterol molecules which are not HDL (or ‘good’ cholesterol). This is all the cholesterol that can be harmful and increase your risk to heart disease, stroke and Type 2 diabetes.
CHO:HDL Ratio
The cholesterol/HDL ratio is calculated by dividing your total cholesterol value by your HDL cholesterol level (“good cholesterol”). This measurement tool helps to understand your risk to cardiovascular disease.
