Date:8/12/2008

ive cholesterol test available today, reporting 15 separate components of blood cholesterol as opposed to four in a standard test, and is the only cholesterol test to identify markers for Metabolic Syndrome, a precursor for diabetes. The test has been shown to identify over twice the number of patients with lipid abnormalities than the standard lipid panel (cholesterol and triglyceride test). Risks of both heart disease and diabetes can be reduced with the right preventive treatments, which is why more accurate diagnosis is critical.

The VAP Test is available nationwide. Consumers interested in the test can ask their doctor for more information or visit http://www.thevaptest.com. Individuals should always check their plan for specific benefit coverage.
