This panel may be appropriate for anyone with a personal or family history of cardiovascular disease (CVD), high cholesterol, high triglycerides, or diabetes.  There is increasing focus on post-COVID-19 syndrome (Long Term COVID) and the potential for heart disease, among other symptoms.  

Cardiovascular disease can be caused by high levels of bad cholesterol (LDL-C) in the blood. This leads to the buildup of plaque on the walls of the arteries.  Over time, this can lead to heart attack or stroke.

There are various therapies, along with diet and exercise, that can lower your risk of CVD if you know you are at risk.  This test offers the ability to determine your risk accurately and quickly in the convenience of your home by using Dried Blood Card collection.

How does a dried blood card work?

Dried blood card is a form of collection where patients place blood drops on the Advance Dx100 collection card after a finger prick with a lancet provided in the kit. Once dry, blood cards are extremely stable for shipment and storage (except in extreme heat) and the dried blood format offers excellent correlation with serum tests.
