Blood Test for Heart Health at The Health Dispensary

At The Health Dispensary, we understand the importance of maintaining a healthy heart. Our comprehensive blood test for heart health offers a thorough assessment, providing you with critical insights into your cardiovascular well-being. This test includes a full cholesterol profile, HbA1c levels, and CRP (C-Reactive Protein) levels to give you a detailed picture of your heart health.

Why Heart Health Matters

Cardiovascular diseases are among the leading causes of mortality worldwide. Early detection and monitoring can significantly reduce the risk of heart disease and related complications. Our specialised heart health screening can help you identify potential issues early and take proactive steps to maintain a healthy heart.

What’s Included in the Test?

1. Full Cholesterol Profile**

   – Total Cholesterol:** Measures the overall amount of cholesterol in your blood.

   – HDL (High-Density Lipoprotein) CholesterolKnown as “good” cholesterol, helps remove other forms of cholesterol from your bloodstream.

   – LDL (Low-Density Lipoprotein) Cholesterol: Often referred to as “bad” cholesterol, high levels can lead to plaque buildup in arteries and result in heart disease.

   – Triglycerides: Type of fat found in your blood. High levels can increase your risk of heart disease.

2. HbA1c Levels

   – This test measures your average blood sugar levels over the past three months. Elevated HbA1c levels can indicate poor blood sugar control, which is a risk factor for diabetes and heart disease.

3. CRP (C-Reactive Protein) Levels

   – CRP is a marker of inflammation in your body. High levels of CRP can indicate inflammation, which is linked to a higher risk of heart disease.
