All you need is a simple blood test

About 60 million Americans may be affected by high Lp(a) and may not know it.

The scientific understanding of the role of Lp(a) is expanding. Although screening for high Lp(a) is not yet part of a standard blood test, finding out your level is simple. It only takes a quick blood test. If your Lp(a) level exceeds 125 nmol/L (50 mg/dL), this indicates a high level. Having some Lp(a) in your blood is normal; the risk comes when the level is too high. 

We're proud to partner with LetsGetChecked to make it easier for you to get screened for high Lp(a). Learn more about how to order a test from LetsGetChecked by visiting their website


The cost for a test varies; you can have your Lp(a) level checked through a testing company for less than $90. The test will also include cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

To learn whether you are living with the hidden heart risk of high Lp(a), get screened today. Here are some helpful links to help you get started:
