The advanced lipid test identifies risk factors which are inherited, that increase risk of cardiovascular disease, heart stroked and /or diabetes. The results of advanced lipid tests help doctors to develop a treatment plan to include the best nutritional and exercise recommendations.

Advanced lipid testing is an excellent preventative health analysis provided by doctors. As an extension of standard blood-cholesterol tests, advanced lipid testing provides more detailed information of the levels of lipids in the blood that may increase the risk of high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes, or other health problems in some patients and sometimes causing heart stroke.  The advanced lipid testing procedure is a simple blood test that can be performed in the office at Advanced Cardiovascular Care Center, but it must be prescribed by a doctor or specialist.

When Advanced Lipid Testing is Preferred?

If your cholesterol has been tested recently and you’ve been informed you have high cholesterol levels, then advanced lipid testing performed.

While the necessity of advanced lipid testing remains a hot topic in some healthcare circles, for many high-risk patients this is the most effective method of assessing a prevention or treatment plan for potentially life-threatening health problems. Depending on your particular medical concerns, your doctor can tailor a plan to your specific needs.
