Lipoprotein (a), Lp(a) Blood Test

  • Item # LC120188

Measures blood levels of atherogenic small, dense lipoproteins

Lipoproteins are substances made of protein and fat. They transport cholesterol through your bloodstream, but they’re not all the same size. Small, dense lipoproteins increase your risk of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease—and standard lipid tests don’t measure them. This one does.

The Lp(a) test is used to measure the blood level of small dense lipoproteins, which are a direct link to the formation of arterial plaques (atherosclerosis), and is a strong indicator for coronary heart disease.

Elevated blood levels of lipoprotein are associated with increased risk of cardiac death in individuals with a history of acute heart attacks and coronary bypass procedures. Lp(a) also increases your risk for coronary heart disease and ischemic stroke.


Fasting is not required for this test. However, drink plenty of water and take your medications as prescribed. Intake of alcohol, aspirin, niacin, and estrogen supplements have the potential of causing a misrepresentation of true Lp(a) concentrations.
