Test Includes

The reflex criteria below are in effect.

• If triglycerides are >800, the LDL cholesterol will reflex to the direct LDL at an additional charge.

• If LDL direct is <130, will reflex to NMR Lipoprotein Analysis by NMR without IR (insulin resistance) markers performed at an additional charge.

• If LDL calculation is <130, will reflex to NMR Lipoprotein Analysis by NMR without IR (insulin resistance) markers performed at an additional charge.

 

Use 

The lipid cascade supports risk assessment and management of patients who present with cardiometabolic risk (CMR) factors (eg, elevated blood pressure, abdominal obesity, insulin resistance (IR), lipoprotein abnormalities, and elevated blood glucose).

Conventional lipid profile results are indirect estimates of the actual lipoproteins that transport cholesterol, many of which may be atherogenic. Additionally, basic lipid profile results do not: (1) account for the variability in cholesterol subfraction content; (2) measure lipoprotein particle size and number; or (3) provide information suggestive of changes associated with IR progression.

In patients with an LDL cholesterol result <130 mg/dL, the lipid cascade automatically reflexes to lipoprotein analysis by NMR to evaluate LDL particle number (additional charge on reflex). The lipid cascade provides a lipoprotein IR score as a qualitative indicator of the patient's insulin resistance and risk for diabetes. In patients with a triglyceride result >800 mg/dL, the lipid cascade automatically reflexes to a direct LDL (additional charge on reflex). If the direct LDL result is <130 mg/dL, the lipid cascade automatically reflexes to lipoprotein analysis by NMR.
