Level Checks - Heart Health Test Information

Heart Health Information

Whether you're experiencing the symptoms of cardiovascular disease or you're worried that you're genetically predisposed to heart problems, a heart health blood test can put your mind at ease.

A quick, relatively painless procedure can tell you whether or not you?re experiencing or likely to develop a cardiovascular condition. We will send your sample to our laboratory for an express analysis before giving you the results ? usually within a few days.

When we perform a cardiovascular function blood test, we?re looking for a number of markers that might suggest a problem. If your marker levels are abnormal, we may suggest further tests or a thorough investigation. The markers we test for include:

  • Total cholesterol

  • LDL cholesterol levels

  • HDL cholesterol

  • Triglycerides

  • High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hsCRP)

  • One of our experienced doctors or phlebotomists will assess your marker levels in detail. And we'll aim to complete the tests and deliver our feedback within just a few days of your blood test appointment.
