But cholesterol can also be dangerous if excess cholesterol gets stuck in the walls of the blood vessels, as this can lead to cardiovascular disease.
By calculating the ratio of Apolipoprotein B and Apolipoprotein A1, one can reflect the balance between HDL-cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol and thereby assess the risk of cardiovascular disease (heart and blood vessel diseases).
This is how it works: The test is a blood test that is carried out at the selected sampling unit.

Remember: Bring valid identification with you when taking the sample.
By measuring Apolipoprotein B and Apolipoprotein A1, you get the ratio of these that reflects the balance, which is a good measure for assessing the risk of suffering from cardiovascular diseases. A desirable level for men is
