Description

Apolipoprotein A1 is the main protein component of high-density lipoprotein, HDL-cholesterol "the good cholesterol", and protects against cardiovascular diseases. Cardiovascular disease can often be prevented by making lifestyle changes and, if necessary, drug treatment for high blood pressure and high blood fats.

By measuring Apolipoprotein A1 together with Apolipoprotein B (Apo B), the ratio of these can reflect the balance between the different types of cholesterol and assess the risk of cardiovascular disease and suspicion of disturbed lipid metabolism.

This is how it works: The test is a blood test that is carried out at the selected sampling unit.

Sample response: You normally have a response within 6 banking days after taking the sample. The test answer is sent digitally to your e-mail. Together with your test results, you will receive a report in Swedish about your values ​​and the doctor's comment.

Remember: Bring valid identification with you when taking the sample.

Information

About Apolipoprotein A1 (Apo A1) and Apolipoprotein B (Apo B)

Blood fat disorders (lipid metabolism) give an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases. Apolipoprotein A1 (Apo A1) is found in HDL cholesterol, the "good cholesterol" with anti-inflammatory properties, and transports excess cholesterol from the cells to the liver for burning, which contributes to a reduced fat deposit in the blood vessels.

Apolipoprotein B (Apo B) is the protein component of LDL cholesterol, also called "the bad cholesterol". Apolipoprotein B contributes to the transport of LDL cholesterol and can cause the LDL cholesterol to get stuck in the blood vessels, which affects the walls, which then become stiff, which in itself can lead to a higher risk of cardiovascular diseases.

High and low levels of Apolipoprotein A1 (Apo A1)

During treatment with estrogens, antiepileptic drugs and regular alcohol intake, high levels of Apolipoprotein A1 are seen.

Diabetes mellitus, obesity and liver diseases are seen at a low level of Apolipoprotein A1. Low level is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

No recommendations for apolipoprotein A1 have been established, but it has been suggested that the desirable level should be >1.25 g/L for women and >1.15 g/L for men.
