Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women? 1 in 4 Americans die from heart disease each year.
What if my cholesterol is normal?
Routine cholesterol levels are commonly used to estimate the number of lipoprotein particles (bad cholesterol particles). Your routine cholesterol tests may appear normal but could actually be dangerously high when performing an advanced lipoprotein particle test (LDL-P).
This conflict between a routine cholesterol test (LDL-C) and the advanced LDL particle test (LDL-P) is especially common in an insulin resistant individual.
Aren’t I at greater risk for a heart attack when the LDL particle number is higher?
Don’t be misled by the “normal” cholesterol tests, get the facts about you. It pays to get an Advanced Lipoprotein Blood Test.
