Description

ApoB or Apolipoprotein B tests are a type of blood test used to assess an individual’s overall cardiovascular health. Apolipoproteins are proteins found in lipids (fats) which help to transport them in the body. ApoB is found in low density lipoprotein (LDL) particles which is known as the “bad” cholesterol. ApoB is used to measure the total levels of LDL particles in the blood. The results of an ApoB test can give healthcare professionals an indication of an individual’s risk of developing heart disease and other cardiovascular problems. People who have higher ApoB levels are at an increased risk of developing heart disease and should make lifestyle changes to lower their ApoB levels.
