Apolipoprotein B

Lipoprotein subfraction testing is not routinely ordered, but its use is growing. It may offer useful information in assessing risk in patients who have a personal or family history of early heart disease, especially if their total and LDL cholesterol values are not significantly elevated.

Preparation: fast 12-14 hours prior to this test, unless you are diabetic or pregnant. Fasting means abstaining from food and any non-water drinks. Do drink plenty of water while fasting and continue with any prescribed medications.

Please be advised, that our services are strictly self pay and are not eligible for submission as a claim to your health insurance provider. However, you can submit the receipt for reimbursement to many Flexible Spending and Health Savings Accounts for reimbursement.
