Prediction of coronary heart disease using risk factor categories



Before significant advances have been made in genetic profiling, risk factor detection will continue to rely on family history, the presence of certain features found on medical examination, artery scanning (to detect to tendency to atherosclerosis or artery ‘furring’) and various markers in the blood.

These blood test markers are useful in large populations to detect overall risk but almost useless to reliably detect the presence of coronary artery disease in individuals.

These aspects of blood tests apply to blood fats (cholesterol, LDL, HDL), homocysteine, CRP and lipoprotein-a alike.
