CVD is the leading cause of death in women, taking the lives of over 300,000 women in the US in 2020.1
However, women are much less likely than men to be assessed for CVD risk based on guidelines.2
Individuals suitable for testing:
Testing solutions for early identification of CVD risk in women
a Panel and profile components may be ordered separately:
Lipid Panel: Cardio IQ Cholesterol Total (91717); Cardio IQ Triglycerides (91718); Cardio IQ HDL Cholesterol (91719)
Lipid Panel with Reflex to Direct LDL: Cardio IQ Cholesterol Total (91717); Cardio IQ Triglycerides (91718); Cardio IQ HDL Cholesterol (91719). If triglyceride result is >400 mg/dL, Direct LDL Cholesterol will be performed at an additional charge
