Diagnostic Blood Test:

Apolipoprotein B (ApoB)

Apolipoprotein B (ApoB) is a protein found in different types of “bad” cholesterol, including low-density lipoprotein (LDL), lipoprotein(a), and very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL). ApoB can transfer extra cholesterol into the body’s tissues. High levels of ApoB in the blood are linked to a higher risk of developing heart disease.
