CV Healthâ„¢-Genova Kit

Note: This is a test kit that will be mailed to you and requires a blood draw. It is your responsibility to arrange the blood draw for your kit.



Fasting Required: Yes - See Special Instructions

Specimen: Blood

Results: 14-17 business days
Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.

Special Instructions: Certain medications and supplements may influence this test, including aspirin and cholesterol-lowering drugs.
On the day before the collection patients MUST fast overnight (at least 12 hours) prior to the blood draw. Patients should also be counseled to avoid exercise for at least 12 hours prior to the test, and to avoid alcohol consumption for at least 24 hours prior to the test.
Specimens from patients who are on drug therapy involving S-adenosyl-methionine may show elevated levels of homocysteine.
Results on specimens obtained from patients taking methotrexate, carbamazepine, phenytoin, nitrous oxide, anti-convulsants, or 6-azauridine
triacetates should be interpreted with caution as these substances interfere with homocysteine determination.

Description: This profile analyzes blood and utilizes NMR fractionation technology. This allow for state-of-the-art lipid markers and independent risk factors to illuminate the clinical complexity of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Together, these markers provide a thorough assessment of cardiovascular health status, revealing the biochemical environment associated with inflammation, lipid deposits, endothelial dysfunction, and clotting factors underlying cardiovascular disease.
