If you have any of the risk factors for heart disease, it's important to get your cholesterol and triglyceride levels checked regularly. An estimated 94 million Americans suffer from high-cholesterol. Healthyr’s Cardiovascular Health Test can help you do just that. This test measures your LDL-cholesterol and triglyceride levels and provides you with an accurate assessment of your risk for heart disease. If you'd like to read more about the biomarkers we're testing for and why we test for them, scroll down to our biomarkers section to learn more!

According to the CDC, too much cholesterol puts you at risk for heart disease and stroke, two leading causes of death in the United States. High cholesterol has no signs or symptoms, so the only way to know if you have it is to get your cholesterol checked.

Healthyr’s Cardiovascular Health Test doesn’t just check for high cholesterol, but for a host of other biomarkers that can impact your heart’s health. With this information, you and your physician are empowered to take next steps with a treatment plan. The earlier you catch cardiovascular problems, the better your chances are of preventing serious health complications down the road. So don't wait, get tested today with Healthyr’s Cardiovascular Health Test. Due to the latest regulations on Laboratory Developed Tests we proudly ship anywhere in the United States except for New York state.

Testing Biomarkers

Healthyr Cardiovascular Health Test

Total Cholesterol (CHOL)

What is it?

If you have too much cholesterol in your blood, it can combine with other substances in the blood to form plaque. Plaque sticks to the walls of your arteries. This buildup of plaque is known as atherosclerosis. It can lead to coronary artery disease, where your coronary arteries become narrow or even blocked.

How does it affect me?

Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that's found in all the cells in your body. Your body needs some cholesterol to make hormones, vitamin D, and substances that help you digest foods. Your body makes all the cholesterol it needs. Cholesterol is also found in foods from animal sources, such as egg yolks, meat, and cheese

High-Density Lipoproteins (HDL)

What is it?

HDL stands for high-density lipoproteins. It is sometimes called the "good" cholesterol because it carries cholesterol from other parts of your body back to your liver. Your liver then removes the cholesterol from your body.

How does it affect me?

With HDL cholesterol, higher numbers are better, because a high HDL level can lower your risk for coronary artery disease and stroke. How high your HDL should be depends on your age and sex: 19 or younger = More than 45mg/dl, Men age 20 or older = More than 40mg/dl, Women age 20 or older = More than 50mg/dl

Low-Density Lipoprotiens (LDL)

What is it?

LDL stands for low-density lipoproteins. It is sometimes called the "bad" cholesterol because a high LDL level leads to a buildup of cholesterol in your arteries.

How does it affect me?

If you have a high LDL level, this means that you have too much LDL cholesterol in your blood. This extra LDL, along with other substances, forms plaque. The plaque builds up in your arteries and puts you at risk of developing atherosclerosis.

Triglycerides (TRIG)

What is it?

Your body uses triglycerides for energy. If you eat more calories than you need, your body turns the extra calories into triglycerides and stores them in your fat cells to use later. When your body needs energy, your cells release triglycerides into your bloodstream to provide fuel for your muscles to work.

How does it affect me?

A high blood triglyceride level usually doesn't cause any symptoms, but over time, it may affect your arteries and increase your risk of heart disease. Extremely high levels of triglycerides also increase the risk of acute pancreatitis in adults and children.

Apolipoprotein A1 (APOA1)

What is it?

ApoA-I attaches to cell membranes and promotes the movement of cholesterol and phospholipids from inside the cell to the outer surface. Once outside the cell, these substances combine with apoA-I to form HDL. ApoA-I also triggers a reaction called cholesterol esterification that converts cholesterol to a form that can be fully integrated into HDL and transported through the bloodstream.

How does it affect me?

ApoA-1 promotes the formation of HDL (healthy cholesterol). Low ApoA-1 may cause low HDL and put you at risk of cardiovascular disease. Adapting healthy habits like sleeping, excercising, and eating healthy foods can improve ApoA-1 levels, but there may also be underlying gentic causes for low ApoA-1.

Apolipoprotein B (APOB)

What is it?

The APOB gene provides instructions for making two versions of the apolipoprotein B protein, a short version called apolipoprotein B-48 and a longer version known as apolipoprotein B-100. Both of these proteins are components of lipoproteins, which are particles that carry fats and fat-like substances (such as cholesterol) in the blood.

How does it affect me?

ApoB is a protein attached to bad cholesterol like LDL, VLDL, and IDL and allows these types of cholesterols into your cells. Elevated ApoB means you may be at risk of cardiovascular disease.

High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein

What is it?

High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) is a marker of inflammation that predicts incident myocardial infarction, stroke, peripheral arterial disease, and sudden cardiac death among healthy individuals with no history of cardiovascular disease, and recurrent events and death in patients with acute or stable coronary syndromes.

How does it affect me?

Elevated CRP may be caused by injury, infection, or chronic disease and may increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, and cardiovascular disease.

Cortisol

What is It?

Cortisol is a steroid hormone that your body naturally produce and release. Cortisol affects several aspects of your body and mainly helps regulate your body's response to stress. Cortisol has several important functions including helping the body regulate blood pressure and heart rate. Cortisol aids in the metabolism of glucose, suppresses the immune system, and influences memory formation. Cortisol also plays a role in how the body responds to inflammation.

How does it affect me?

Elevated cortisol may cause a wide array of health problems including mental health issues, infertility, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. With respect to athletic performance, cortisol causes muscle breakdown and may inhibit growth factors that help build muscle.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this test work?

Healthyr At-Home Tests all use the latest Dried Blood Spot technology to safely collect a sample at home and then have it processed in one of our CLIA certified labs. This involves using a small lancet, pricking your finger and dripping the blood onto the provided card.

Does pricking my finger hurt?

Pain tolerence is relative to everyone. We use a small gauge lancet for minimal incision. If you're curious how big the incision is or where to prick please refer to our Instructional Video to see. It's on every product page if you scroll through our images. And we promise, this won't hurt any worse then spending hours at the doctor's office.

What if I can’t get enough blood on the card?

Three lancets are provided to give you the best chance of collecting enough blood for the sample. We recommend drinking a glass of water thirty minutes before collecting your sample, washing your hands in warm water, and raising your heart rate just before lancing. A couple ways you can raise your heartrate is by doing 20 jumping jacks or looking at pictures of your ex on Instagram.

What if I follow those tips and still can’t get enough blood?

1) You probably don't need to be worried about being a vampire's first victim and 2) Call us and we're happy to help. Our Customer Service Number is on your test box and here at 833-416-6816. If you have trouble during the collection process, please reach out to us and we can provide a new test kit. We are also happy to walk you through the test while you take it.

What happens if my sample gets lost in the mail?

Regrattably, we don’t have any control over the mail, but we will keep track of your sample and notify you if it appears lost. If you need us to find your tracking information reach out and we're happy to find it for you!

What would cause my sample to get rejected?

• The most common rejection reasons are not enough or too much blood or smearing.
• Red blood must cross the 1st line. Passing the 3rd line is okay, but the lab actually needs to punch out the serum (whiteish part).
• If you let the strip dry and then go to add more blood, it will not separate correctly. Once a strip gets wet, you must add enough blood before it dries.
• Once you have completed your collection, ensure that the blood is dried completely before putting it in the mailer bag.
"

What happens if my sample gets rejected?

In the event that the lab is unable to process your sample, you will receive notice and a new kit, free of charge.

How do I get my sample to the lab?

Every Healthyr Test comes with a prepaid USPS shipping envelope and a biohazard bag. All you have to do is place your sample and the provided biohazard bag into the prepaid shipping envelope and place it in your mailbox or drop it off at your nearest Post Office.

How long will it take to receive my results?

From the time that the lab receives your sample, it will take approximately 1-3 days to receive your results.
