LDL Particles

Plaque Progression: More LDL Particles = More Plaque

The higher the number of LDL Particles, the greater the likelihood for them to enter the arterial
wall and deposit their contents forming atheroslerotic plaque.

Measurement of LDL-C on traditional lipid panels does not reflect the LDL particle number.

The NMR LipoProfile test—The Particle Test—is more than a cholesterol test.
It measures the number of LDL Particles in blood to get a more
complete picture of cardiovascular risk for personalized LDL management.
