In recent years, advanced lipid panels have been used more frequently for more accurate risk assessment and better targeted treatment of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Both high-density lipoproteins (HDLs) and low-density lipoproteins (LDLs) consist of subclasses that vary in atherogenicity. A growing number of biomarkers including lipoprotein(a), apolipoprotein A1, and B100 as well as lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 are being monitored to provide insights into CVD and vascular inflammation risk. Compared to standard lipid panels, advanced lipid panels may allow for more refined risk identification, which can lead to better treatment targets and goals. While guidelines don’t yet call for routine use of advanced lipid panels, an increasing number of healthcare providers order these panels in addition to traditional lipid biomarkers. Dietitians may use results of advanced lipid panels to advise patients on specific lifestyle modifications to lower CVD risk.


The goal of this cardiovascular disease (CVD) and lipids continuing education module is to teach dietitians what advanced CVD biomarkers are and how they can be used in practice. After studying the information presented here, you’ll be able to:
  • Discuss the use of novel cardiovascular risk markers in prevention of CVD and among patients with additional comorbidities
  • Describe the differences among low-density cholesterol (LDL), high-density cholesterol (HDL), and the respective lipid subclasses and their atherogenicity
  • List ways in which information provided in advanced lipid panels may be used by dietitians to better educate patients and support healthcare providers to maximize CVD risk reduction
