VAP(R) Cholesterol Test Highlighted in Groundbreaking Book on Longevity
Date:7/7/2009

other results. In the VAP test, LDL is measured directly, providing much more accurate information than a calculated value. VAP also measures lipoprotein(a), IDL, and VDL, risk factors found to be more important than total cholesterol and LDL. Finally, VAP fractionates or splits HDL, the beneficial form of cholesterol, into HDL-2 and HDL-3 subunits. HDL-2 is much more protective than HDL-3. Low HDL-2 is a significant risk factor for cardiovascular disease."

The TRANSCEND authors urge people to take advantage of the accelerating developments in biotechnology and offer everything from updates on relevant research to tips on talking to your doctor about cutting-edge testing.

The VAP Test reports 20 separate components of blood cholesterol as opposed to four in a standard cholesterol test. The test can identify a far greater number of lipid abnormalities -- the No. 1 risk factor for heart disease -- than the standard cholesterol test and now reports apoAI and the apoB/apoAI ratio at no added cost.

People with a family history or an existing condition of diabetes, high blood pressure or heart disease -- or who are already taking cholesterol-lowering medication -- are candidates for the comprehensive VAP Test. In addition, those who don't score within the desirable ranges of the standard cholesterol test (i.e. those with triglycerides > 150, HDL < 40, LDL >130, total cholesterol > 200) should also opt for the more detailed VAP Test.

The VAP Test is available nationwide and covered by most insurance providers, including Medicare and Medicaid. For more information call 877.901.8510 or visit www.thevaptest.com.
