Apolipoproteins A1 and B are proteins that form a major part of high-density and low-density lipoproteins, respectively. The Apo A1 and B test measure the amount of the A1 and B apolipoproteins in the blood, to help get an overview of the ratio of good and bad cholesterol in the blood.
Apolipoprotein A1 and B are proteins that form components of lipoproteins. Apo A1 is associated with HDL, while Apo B is a part of LDL. The Apolipoprotein A1 and B test is generally not a part of basic screening panels and is mostly prescribed for definitive studies of an individual’s cardiac risk factors when they have significant histories of CAD, heart attacks, strokes, etc. in their family. The Apo A1 and B blood test may also be performed as a follow-up in cases where an individual has received lipid profile results that are inconsistent with their health profile or are abnormal, as Apo A1 and B are known to be more closely associated with cardiovascular conditions.
The Apo A1 protein plays a significant role in the reverse transportation of cholesterol. High Apo A1 levels are inversely related to a person’s risk for developing heart conditions. On the other hand, Apo B levels have a direct association with cardiovascular risks. While the amount of cholesterol in LDL particles may vary, every LDL contains exactly one Apo B protein, which makes the Apo B test a more reliable marker for LDL levels.
The Apo A1 and B test is prescribed for people with a family history of cardiac issues or who have high-risk factors for developing heart conditions. The Apo blood test can prove to be more effective when it comes to studying one’s risk profile for heart diseases. In cases where a person’s lipid profile seems to be inconsistent with their risk factors, an Apo A1 and B test can help assess the atherogenic potential of lipid disorders. Other symptoms/conditions that may lead to a Apo A1 and B test being prescribed include:
The Lab test can help monitor the efficacy of cholesterol treatment, and check the effects of hormonal therapies, and it can be used to detect improvements in renal function. In a few cases, the Apo A1 and Apo B test can also help in the diagnosis of genetic issues, like hypobetalipoproteinaemia, that lead to the under- or over-production of apo B or to diagnose conditions, like tangier or fish-eye disease, that cause Apo A1 deficiencies.
At Max Lab, all details, including the cost, of the Apolipoprotein A1 and B test can be checked online before booking an appointment for the same. Max Lab also offers an at-home sample collection facility for a seamless experience. The test report for the Apo A1 and Apo B blood test is generated within 24 hours of sample collection and can be downloaded from our website as well. As the normal range for this test may vary from lab to lab and as there are several factors that can affect the Apo A1 and B levels in a person’s body, it is always recommended that one visits their doctor with their test results, so a proper diagnosis can be performed.....Read More

Apolipoproteins A1 and B are two types of apolipoproteins. Apolipoprotein A1 is the major protein component of HDL (high-density lipoprotein), while apolipoprotein B is the major protein component of LDL (low-density lipoprotein). The Apo A1/B test measures the ratio of these two proteins in your blood.
The Apolipoprotein A1 and B Test is used to diagnose a number of different diseases, including atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease, and stroke. This test measures the levels of apolipoprotein A1 and B in the blood, which are proteins that play a role in the transport and metabolism of cholesterol.
Your doctor may recommend an Apolipoprotein A1 and B test if you have a family history of heart disease or if you’ve already been diagnosed with heart disease. The test can help show how well your treatment is working.
Normal ranges for apoA1 and apoB vary depending on the laboratory, but are generally within the following ranges:
-ApoA1: 70-130 mg/dL
-ApoB: 40-100 mg/dL
The best way to lower your apolipoprotein A1 and B levels is to make lifestyle changes that will lower your cholesterol levels. These lifestyle changes include eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and quitting smoking. If you have high cholesterol, your doctor may also recommend medication to help lower your apolipoprotein A1 and B levels.
