Want to understand your risk for a heart attack?

Lp(a), a lesser known cholesterol, could be increasing your risk of heart attack 3x. A free Lp(a) blood test can provide you valuable insight into your heart attack risk.

Lp(a) is a protein in your blood that can be genetically elevated and builds up regardless of exercise and diet.

Prolonged high Lp(a) levels increase risk of heart attack 3x.

There are currently no treatments yet for high Lp(a).

People with low LDL may still have a high Lp(a).

You can impact the future of heart health with a blood test

  • Overlooked Marker: Most routine blood tests by doctors do not check for Lp(a) so elevated levels commonly go undetected.
  • No Insurance Needed: Insurance typically doesn't cover Lp(a) testing, but with Care Access, it's on us.
  • Compensation Included: We'll even compensate you for your time and travel, up to $45.
  • Help future generations: Contribute to scientific research about the link between Lp(a) and heart disease.

What is lipoprotein (a) [Lp(a)]?

20% of the world's population has an elevated lipoprotein (a) [Lp(a)], a very sticky protein (cholesterol) in your blood that is affected by genetics instead of lifestyle. A lipoprotein (a) test can help determine your Lp(a) levels, however, it is typically not covered by insurance.

What are some Lp(a) treatments?

Currently, there are no approved Lp(a) treatments on the market. Participants who screen will have access to learn about research options for the development of Lp(a) treatments.

How is type 2 diabetes diagnosed?

Type 2 diabetes is diagnosed when your pancreas cannot create the hormone insulin that helps lower the amount of glucose (sugar) in your blood.
