Fasting

For the preventive Hart Compleet package for your health, it is important to be fasting for 12 hours before the blood test, so you can only consume water during this time.

What is it?

The Hart Compleet blood test is an extensive package that examines the health of your heart. Heart and vascular diseases are the most common diseases, and we are developing atherosclerosis (vascular narrowing) at increasingly younger ages. Therefore, a preventive blood test is advisable, especially if you have a sedentary lifestyle and move less than 30 minutes per day.

In this blood test, among other things, we measure everything about your cholesterol. More information about cholesterol can be found below. Cholesterol Blood Test We also measure kidney function, glucose, and a form of heart function.

If you experience chest pain during exertion, you should have a different test. For this, it is best to make an E-consult General Practitioner appointment.

What do we determine?

LDL Cholesterol
LDL stands for low-density lipoprotein. It is a fat molecule that can cause narrowing of the blood vessels, known as atherosclerosis. Therefore, LDL cholesterol is the less favorable cholesterol. Normally, LDL is broken down. If something is wrong with the breakdown, or too much is ingested through food, then cholesterol levels rise. This increases the risk of a heart attack (myocardial ischemia) or a stroke (cardiovascular accident, CVA).

HDL Cholesterol
HDL is called the beneficial cholesterol because it can bring other types of cholesterol back to the liver for breakdown. This way, they do not remain in the blood and do not cause damage.

Triglycerides
Triglycerides are fats that you get from food. These are broken down into fatty acids in the intestines and converted back into triglycerides in the liver. They are then distributed and broken down into usable molecules such as cholesterols.

Creatinine and eGFR
With these, we determine kidney function. People with heart problems often have narrowing of the arteries. The blood does not flow well, and as a result, the heart pumps harder. This is not good for the pressure in the renal artery, causing kidney damage.

HbA1C
With HbA1C, we can determine the blood sugar (glucose) level of the past two months to see if there are indications of diabetes.

NT-proBNP A high NT-proBNP is released with stretching of the heart wall. We often see this in heart failure, accompanied by symptoms of shortness of breath and fluid in the legs. This test is only determined if the age is over 50 years and symptoms are present.

When to choose this test?

Choose the Hart Compleet blood test package when:

  • You want to know if a healthy diet/lifestyle is effective
  • Your risk of cardiovascular disease is increasing or decreasing
  • You want a quantitative picture of your cardiovascular risk profile
  • You have had complaints of shortness of breath, pain, or fluid in the legs for some time


When to test?

If you already have an increased risk of heart and vascular diseases, it is advised to test every 3-12 months. If you have additional diseases, such as overweight or diabetes, you can test every 3-6 months. If you are over 20 years old, it is advised to test once every 6 years if the results are good.
The accuracy of the test for Hart compleet is conducted through ISO-certified laboratories. The accuracy of a test method is expressed in terms of specificity and sensitivity. However, the most important aspect is that the results are interpreted and accepted among general practitioners and hospitals. This is the case with our venous samples. Mutual acceptance may not always be present due to potentially reduced reliability with a capillary sample.
Most tests generally take 24-48 hours. Tests that go through an LC-MS method generally take longer, think about an average of 3-7 working days. Additionally, it also depends on the location. Some locations do the analysis themselves and others outsource it to another lab.
Interpreting the results of Hart compleet is not always easy and should be seen in the broader picture, along with anamnesis and physical examination. In the doctor's advice section, the query in which you can already outline your complaints is taken into account, otherwise, the results are interpreted in conjunction with the other results. If necessary, the doctor can call to ask about physical abnormalities. You don't have to interpret the results yourself because there is always advice and explanation from the doctor.
If the results of the test for Hart compleet are clinically significantly abnormal, the doctor will contact you by phone. If you are not reachable, you will receive an email. This includes advice and an explanation of the abnormal results and what you can do about them. If you need a prescription or referral, we can help with that.
The costs of Hart compleet can be found on the product page. Depending on your insurance and additional packages, you may be reimbursed for these costs for Hart compleet. For example, tests for IVF treatment are often reimbursed. After your order, you will receive an invoice that you can submit to your insurance.
The ordering process is easy. You can add a Hart compleet test or the tests you want to your shopping cart. In step two, you fill in your details and pay.

For blood tests, we always use venous sampling. This is the gold standard for blood collection. Over-the-counter tests, such as a finger prick test, use the capillary route for blood collection. These do not always give the same results and the accuracy depends on how, where, and with which technique the collection is done. The advantage, of course, is that the test is easier and less painful to take.
You can always pay with iDeal and credit card (VISA, Mastercard, and Amex). This also includes Apple Pay. The phlebotomists at the collection location cannot accept cash payments.
