The PLAC test, which measures the Lp-PLA2 enzyme in the blood, is designed to detect the build-up of plaque on arterial walls, providing valuable insights into one's risk of heart disease. Elevated levels of PLAC are indicative of active cardiovascular disease, rather than just theoretical risk factors, as it is closely associated with an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. PLAC is carried in the blood to fatty cholesterol deposits in the coronary arteries, triggering inflammation and increasing the likelihood of plaque rupture, leading to potential heart attacks or strokes.

Individuals with medical risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, or a family history of cardiovascular disease, as well as those with lifestyle risks like smoking, physical inactivity, or unhealthy diets, may benefit from considering a PLAC test. This home testing process provides a convenient and discreet method for collecting a blood sample, with results available within two working days. Elevated PLAC levels can prompt individuals to take proactive steps towards improving their cardiovascular health, including lifestyle changes and medications like statins to lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of cardiovascular events.
