Questions Submitted

  • I started checking Lp(a) one time only, since hearing your talk at last year’s Refresher Course. How do you use that information? (Eg patient with few to no risk factors but very high Lp(a)- does that push the patient to a higher risk catergory?) How is it weighted among the other risk factors we calculate in the Framingham Calculator? Do you think it will one day be added to the Framingham Calculator?

If you have any questions, please consult our Help Desk.
