Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

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.
