More About Lipid Profile 1

Total Cholesterol
Total cholesterol and it’s sub groups HDL, LDL and Triglycerides (TG) are used in evaluating heart disease risk.
These tests are useful in the assessment of healthy individuals as well as in patients who have heart disease or have other risk factors such as smoking, high blood pressure or diabetes. They are also used to monitor treatment with lipid lowering drugs.

Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP)
Alkaline phosphatase is an enzyme found in high levels in bone and liver.
This is the reason it is used to screen for or monitor, treatment for a liver or bone disorder and is part of the liver function test profile.

Liver function tests
Aspartate aminotransferase (AST), Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT), and bilirubin
These tests together as a group are refer to them as 'liver function tests'.
They detect liver damage or an inherited liver disorder.

Lipoprotein(a)
Lp(a) is a risk factor for heart disease especially when LDL cholesterol is also raised. In the body, apolipoprotein (a) can interfere with blood clot formation and help LDL-C (“bad cholesterol”) molecules bind to artery walls. This accelerates the development of plaques within the wall, which can then narrow and harden the artery. This dual action may explain the role of Lp(a) in the promotion of cardiovascular disease.

hsCRP
C-reactive protein (CRP) is a protein in the blood that increases with inflammation. Atherosclerosis (fatty build-up in artery walls) is also an inflammatory process. However, the inflammation from atherosclerosis is a low level of long-term inflammation that produces only small amounts of CRP. Therefore, the test requires higher sensitivity than previous tests in order to detect the small increases of CRP. Thus, this test is known as high-sensitivity CRP or hs-CRP.
