DESCRIPTION:

The VAP® Test uses the most advanced technology that provides an extremely accurate picture of an individual’s potential for heart disease and diabetes.  This information is a great tool for your physician to provide the proper steps in preventing future heart attacks.

The VAP Test provides a detailed report of individual lipoprotein subclasses and Apolipoprotein subclasses.  This test not only includes the basic cholesterol tests, but also identifies any cholesterol abnormalities that can be a precursor to heart disease or diabetes.

This is not a fasting blood test, which gives you flexibility for different appointment times and doesn’t have to be done early in the day.

WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER THE VERTICAL AUTO PROFILE (VAP) LAB TEST?

Since heart disease is the leading cause of death in both males and females in the United States, the VAP Test provides a comprehensive look at your cholesterol and all its subclasses to give your physician the information needed to manage heart disease risks and prevent any potential medical complications.
