I’ve recently ran some advanced lipids, one I’m interested in particular is my Lp-PLA2 but my result is in the following measurement U/L.
Everything online in terms of research or studies it is measured in the two following measurements -
“There are two types of Lp-PLA2 tests:
The Lp-PLA2 test measures the amount of the enzyme in the blood, reported in units of nanograms per mL (ng/mL).
The Lp-PLA2 activity test measures the activity of the enzyme, reported in units of nmol/min/mL. While these units look complex, they simply describe the amount of substance that Lp-PLA2 converts each minute.”
How do I make sense of my level please?
PL PLA2 - 520 u/L
< 560 u/L - Low Risk
560 - 619 - Intermediate Risk
620 - 634 - Borderline Risk
> or equal to 635 u/L - High Risk
