Information

Investigation by specialist doctor - Cholesterol profile

Research shows that both healthy and people with cardiovascular disease benefit from lowered cholesterol levels. Within traditional healthcare, however, the healthy person rarely gets any help to optimize their cholesterol values. Which means that high cholesterol levels are only treated after a person has suffered from cardiovascular disease. This may be due in part to limited resources in healthcare, but also to a lack of knowledge and awareness among the public and doctors about the importance of lowering high cholesterol levels.

The health check-up is designed to give the cardiologist the conditions to assess your current cholesterol profile, identify any abnormalities and give you any advice for treatment. The research on blood fats is constantly developing and has led to changed recommendations on what are considered to be optimal cholesterol values according to Swedish and European guidelines. Now it is known that LDL cholesterol, the bad cholesterol, should be below 3.0 to avoid risks. If your LDL cholesterol exceeds this value, the risk of atherosclerosis in the blood vessels increases, which in the long run increases the risk of serious cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke.

Statement from specialist doctor

Marcus Hjort is a heart specialist in cardiovascular diseases and has also conducted research focusing on biomarkers in acute coronary syndromes. Marcus focused particularly on heart attacks and during the years as a specialist in cardiology at Danderyd hospital, he has marveled at how undertreated elevated cholesterol levels and its risks are.

What help is there to get?

Unfortunately, high cholesterol levels are usually not treated until after a person has suffered from cardiovascular disease – ie when the damage has already been done. This may be due in part to limited resources in healthcare, but also to a lack of knowledge and awareness among the public and doctors about the importance of lowering high cholesterol levels. Provided the specialist doctor believes that your values should be treated, you will be offered a free consultation to discuss possible treatment.

Optimize your cardiovascular health by monitoring your cholesterol levels

Cardiovascular disease, often linked to elevated cholesterol levels, is one of the leading causes of global death. According to European guidelines, half of the population in the Western world has too high cholesterol levels. Lowering cholesterol levels significantly reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke. For a 45-year-old with slightly elevated cholesterol levels, there is a 30% risk of suffering from cardiovascular diseases, and processes of atherosclerosis begin in childhood and increase with age. Through regular checks of your cholesterol values, you can detect any deviations early and take measures to prevent potential health risks.

Proteins are specific nutrients made up of several combined amino acids. In the body, there are over 10,000 different proteins that form the building blocks of all tissues and other body parts and are used in several important processes such as forming cells, enzymes and hormones.

AP1
Apo A1
Apolipoprotein A1 is the main protein component of high-density lipoprotein, HDL-cholesterol "the good cholesterol", and protects against cardiovascular diseases.

APB
Apo B
Blood fat disorders increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases and Apolipoprotein B, a component of LDL cholesterol also known as "the bad cholesterol", contributes to this risk.

B/A1
Apo B/Apo A1 (ratio)
By determining the ratio between Apolipoprotein B and Apolipoprotein A1, you get an indication of the balance between them, which is a good indicator for assessing the risk of cardiovascular disease.

HBA
HbA1c
HbA1c is a blood test that measures your long-term sugar, that is, blood sugar bound to red blood cells over a three-month period. HbA1c shows the level of blood sugar during that period.

Hormones are substances that control processes in the body and are produced in special glands and cells in the body.

FT4
T4 Free
T4 Free is a thyroid hormone that measures the free thyroxine in the blood and plays an important role in body temperature and metabolism. An imbalance may indicate thyroid problems.

ALP
ALP
Alkaline phosphatases, ALP, are a type of enzyme that breaks down phosphate groups in organic molecules and are active at a higher pH value (alkaline).

ASA
AST
Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) is an enzyme that is normally found inside the cells of the liver. In case of inflammation or irritation in the liver, AST can leak into the blood.

GGT
GT, gamma
GT, gamma, is an enzyme that the body uses to break down amino acids. If liver or biliary tract disease is suspected, the GT value can be measured.

The markers of the kidney tests measure values of various kidney markers that can provide answers as to whether you have reduced kidney function. Get answers to your values - order and make an appointment for a blood test.

CR
Creatinine
Creatinine is formed in your muscles when the body breaks down creatine phosphate (the muscles' energy reserve). The kidneys' job is to filter creatinine.

GLU
Glucose
Glucose is a type of sugar that provides energy and comes from food. Insulin helps move glucose from the blood into the cells. Blood sugar is the level of glucose in the blood and can be high or low. Diabetes affects blood sugar levels and causes high blood sugar.

Lipids (blood fats) consist of fats or biological material that cannot be dissolved in water.

HDL
HDL cholesterol

TC
Total cholesterol
Cholesterol is a natural fat that is important to the body because it helps build cells and produce hormones. It is found both in the cells of the body and in certain foods.

LDL
LDL cholesterol
LDL cholesterol, also known as "bad cholesterol", is a form of cholesterol carried in the body that can cause heart disease if there is too much of it.

TG
Triglycerides
Triglycerides are a type of fat found in the blood and used as a source of energy. They are a combination of glycerol and three fatty acids and play an important role in the body's energy metabolism. High levels of triglycerides in the blood have been shown to be a risk factor for health problems such as cardiovascular disease.

Minerals are non-organic compounds that are used as building blocks to build up parts of the body.

K
Potassium
Potassium is an important mineral for body function, especially for muscle cells. A small part of the total amount of potassium is found in body fluids, and when the potassium level is measured, it is measured in the fluid around the blood cells.

NA
Sodium
Sodium is a mineral that we get in our diet through, for example, meat, fish and cereals, as well as ordinary table salt, which consists of sodium chloride.
