Are Lipoprotein Particle Size and Lipoprotein Electrophoresis test the same? I asked my Dr for Lipo Particle Size and Lp(a) but got Electrophor result

Are Lipoprotein Particle Size and Lipoprotein Electrophoresis test the same? I asked my Dr for Lipo Particle Size and Lp(a) but got Electrophor result

No: I don't think so. I think you need to use different technology to determine particle size. I believe the electrophoresis is only going to give LDL, HDL and VLDL concentration. You could check with the lab your doctor has sent you to to confirm this. ...Read more

Electrophoresis (Definition)

Elecrophoresis is a process of running an electrical current through a matrix and separating items based on how fast they move through the matrix. Frequently in science and medicine, proteins or dna/rna is separated on gel based on the ...Read more

SeperatesLipoprotein: particles by charge & size. Lipoproteins, complex fat particles which transport all fat molecules around body in the water outside cells, have always been the correct issue for artery disease, not any one fat, eg. cholesterol or triglycerides, which is being carried. The higher the LDL-particle concentrations, the more arterial disease progresses; the higher the Large-HDL-particles, the slower. ...Read more

What does an abnormal protein band 1 mean on electrophoresis?

What does an abnormal protein band 1 mean on electrophoresis?

Bone marrow disorder: It means that you are making too much of a single antibody or just a part of an antibody because one clone of plasma cells from your bone marrow has developed over the normal population. This can be a benign condition for many years or progress into a condition called multiple myeloma that needs treatment. ...Read more
