Clinical Conditions Associated With Cardiovascular Disease

Clinical Conditions Associated With Cardiovascular Disease

LabCorp offers tests that can help diagnose and identify the underlying causes of conditions frequently associated with the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD), such as dyslipidemia, atherosclerosis, and familial hypercholesterolemia.

Secondary Dyslipidemia

(Rule out common causes: diabetes, hypothyroidism, liver disease, renal disease*)

Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT/SGPT)

Familial Hypercholesterolemia

Very high levels of LDLC (>190 mg/dL) are usually genetic in origin.* Gene sequencing may be utilized to identify variants in the following:
