Assess Your Risk Factors for Heart Disease

The Heart Health blood test assesses crucial risk factors that can lead to heart disease in the future. It evaluates your cholesterol, inflammation, and apolipoproteins A to E levels to determine your risk. The test is beneficial if you have a family history of heart disease or are concerned that your lifestyle choices may increase your risk.

What it includes

  • A comprehensive blood test conducted by a healthcare professional at our clinic.
  • Doctor-reviewed results with written comments and advice.
  • Optional results consultation with a doctor is available at a discounted rate.
  • Please scroll down the page for a complete list of biomarkers included in the test.

Why take a heart health test

  1. A heart health test is important for those with a family history of heart disease or lifestyle concerns.
  2. It assesses cholesterol, inflammation, and apolipoproteins to detect potential risk factors early.

Age restriction on blood tests

We're unable to offer blood tests for those under the age of 18 unless it is part of a routine GP appointment and the clinician believes it suitable.

The following biomarkers are tested in the heart disease blood test:

  • HDL and LDL cholesterol: HDL (good) and LDL (bad) cholesterol are measured to assess cholesterol levels.
  • Triglycerides: a measure of the actual fat in your blood.
  • CRP-hs: a marker for inflammation in the body.
  • Lipoprotein (a) or Lp(a): a genetic variation of LDL cholesterol that is a significant risk factor for the early development of fatty deposits in arteries.
  • Apolipoproteins A to E: proteins that attach to fats in our blood. High levels of ApoA are protective against heart disease. In contrast, high levels of ApoB represent a higher risk of heart disease.
  • High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP): A biomarker used to measure inflammation levels in the body. It aids in assessing the risk of cardiovascular disease and provides valuable information for preventive strategies.

What should I do if my test results indicate a high risk of heart disease?

If your test results suggest an increased risk of heart disease, it is important to consult with your healthcare provider. If needed, they will guide lifestyle modifications, medications, and further diagnostic tests to help manage your risk and promote heart health.

Can the heart disease risk blood test diagnose heart disease?

The heart disease risk blood test assesses various risk factors associated with heart disease. Still, it cannot independently diagnose the presence of heart disease. It provides valuable information to evaluate your risk and guide preventive measures. Additional diagnostic tests may be required for a definitive diagnosis.
