Special Instruction:
Abnormal kidney function or use of diuretics may influence test results. This test should not be performed on individuals with kidney disorders. In addition, certain medicines may impact test results [e.g. adrenal steroids including corticosteroids, aminoglycoside antibiotics, amphetamines, antihistamines, cephalosporin-C and cephamycins (e.g. Cefoxitin), cimetidine (Tagamet), fibrates (e.g. Ciprofibrate), penicillin or D-penicillamine, phenothiazine derivatives, and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (Bactrim)]. Let your physician know about your use of these medications. Do not change use of medications unless instructed to do so by your healthcare provider.
4 Days before collection:
Discontinue all of the following (unless instructed otherwise by your physician): Non-essential medications including acetaminophen and over-the-counter cold remedies; any vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and herbal supplements taken regularly–including enhanced sports drinks, energy drinks, and vitamin waters.
2 days before collection:
Discontinue all of the following (unless instructed otherwise by your physician) Discontinue creatine, alpha-ketoglutarate, and malic acid supplements, as well as citrate, malate, or orotate forms of minerals.
24-hours before collection:
Eat usual diet but avoid over-eating any single food or consuming an extreme diet. Consume no more than six 8-ounce glasses of fluid over the 24 hours before collection. Avoid eating or drinking any products containing aspartame (Nutra-Sweet, Equal, Spoonful) and monosodium glutamate (MSG).
Night Before Collection:
Fast overnight. Water is okay. Freeze freezer brick at least 8 hours.
Morning of Collection:
Collect urine immediately upon waking. Test is not intended on persons under age 2. Do not collect if there is blood in urine, including menstrual or other blood.
The Cardio Check Profile is an advanced blood assessment of lipids and cardiometabolic analytes providing insight regarding independent risk. Combining the best of conventional and functional laboratory biomarkers, the profile evaluates cholesterol and triglyceride levels, as well as targeted apolipoproteins, important ratios, high sensitivity CRP, and homocysteine. The biomarkers on the Cardio Check are arranged as follows (see sample report for individual analytes):

LDL-C (low density lipoprotein)
is the form of cholesterol that can deposit in plaques ("bad cholesterol") and is the primary target of cholesterol-lowering therapy
HDL-C (high density lipoprotein)
promotes reverse cholesterol transport, carrying LDL cholesterol away from the arteries and back to the liver to be excreted as bile ("good cholesterol")
Triglycerides (TG)
are the most common type of fat in the body and store excess energy from the diet - well-established marker of CVD risk
Total Cholesterol (TC)
includes LDL, VLDL, and HDL cholesterol and levels correlate with atherosclerotic CVD
Lipid Ratios:
Multiple epidemiological studies have shown that lipoprotein ratios have a greater correlation with CVD and are better predictors than individual lipid measurements
TC/HDL Ratio
predicts the formation of coronary plaques and coronary heart disease; the higher the ratio, the greater the risk for developing atherosclerosis
TG/HDL Ratio
has been shown to predict both metabolic and cardiovascular risk and is associated with insulin resistance Apolipoproteins
Apo A-1
is the main structural component of HDL and assists in reverse cholesterol transport (HDL is "good cholesterol")
Apo B
is the main component of atherogenic lipoprotein particles, i.e. LDL, Lp(a), and others (LDL is "bad cholesterol"); Apo B is a stronger indicator of atherogenicity than LDL-C alone
Apo B/Apo A-1 Ratio
has been shown in multiple studies to have a higher predictive ability for metabolic syndrome, CVD, obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes, MI, and early atherosclerosis as compared to standard lipid evaluations. NutrEval Plasma® test is an advanced nutritional analysis designed to reveal nutritional imbalances or inadequacies. NutrEval Plasma evaluates the functional need for antioxidants, B-vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, amino acids, digestive support, and other select nutrients. This nutritional analysis offers insight into nutrient status and allows clinicians to provide targeted treatment for the particular needs of each patient, often augmenting and speeding recovery of complex chronic conditions. Select genomic biomarkers may be added to the profile for enhanced personalization of therapies.
