NMR LipoProfile

This test directly measures the number of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particles circulating in the body. LDL cholesterol (LDL-C) is called “bad” cholesterol because it can build up in the arteries, reducing blood flow. A high level of LDL-C is a risk factor for heart disease. The NMR LipoProfile is different from the traditional tests that measure LDL cholesterol (LDL-C). In most lipid tests, LDL-C is an estimated value. The NMR LipoProfile test directly measures the number of particles—called LDL-P. In some people, LDL-C and LDL-P results show similar risk for heart disease. In other people—particularly people with type 2 diabetes, those being treated with statins, and those with risk factors for heart disease—they are not consistent. In those cases, the NMR LipoProfile test can provide useful information to help assess risk for heart disease. An elevated LDL-P number indicates increased risk for heart disease.
