Lipoprotein (a) is a type of lipoprotein that can contribute to the buildup of fatty deposits in the arteries. High levels of Lipoprotein (a) are associated with an increased risk of heart disease.

iollo markers that associate with Lipoprotein (a)

Arachidonic acid

Arachidonic acid is an omega-6 fatty acid involved in inflammation and oxidative stress, which can promote atherosclerosis. Elevated Lp(a) is also atherogenic and associated with increased cardiovascular disease risk.

Docosahexaenoic acid

DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid with anti-inflammatory properties that may counteract the pro-inflammatory and atherogenic effects of elevated Lp(a). Higher DHA levels are linked to reduced cardiovascular risk.

Eicosapentaenoic acid

EPA is an anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acid that may help reduce Lp(a) levels and mitigate the atherogenic effects of Lp(a). Higher EPA levels are associated with lower cardiovascular risk.
