ApoB:ApoA1 Ratio

What is the ApoB:Apoa1 ratio?

The ApoB/ApoA1 ratio is also highly valuable for detecting atherogenic risk. The ApoB/ApoA1 ratio is stronger than the total cholesterol/HDL cholesterol and LDL/HDL cholesterol ratios in predicting risk. The lower the ApoB/ApoA1 ratio, the lower the risk.
