DLO Direct™ offers three individual tests that can help detect or monitor a heart condition.
A cardiac screen, also known as a lipid panel, is a group of tests to detect the risk of coronary artery disease, heart attack or stroke. It is also used to monitor treatment for someone already diagnosed with cardiac issues.
A total cholesterol test is used to screen for the risk of developing heart disease. Because high blood cholesterol has been associated with the hardening of arteries, called atherosclerosis, and an increased risk of death from heart attacks, cholesterol testing is considered a routine part of preventative health care.
A high sensitivity CRP test is a blood test that is used to evaluate the risk of cardiovascular disease, heart attacks and strokes. The test measures low levels of CRP in the blood to identify low levels of inflammation that can lead to heart disease.
