Test Catalog

Test Name

Test ID: ADHP    
Familial Hypercholesterolemia/Autosomal Dominant Hypercholesterolemia Genetic Testing Reflex Panel

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Aiding in the diagnosis of familial hypercholesterolemia defective apoB-100 in individuals with elevated, untreated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations


Distinguishing the diagnosis of autosomal dominant hypercholesterolemia from other causes of hyperlipidemia, such as familial combined hyperlipidemia


Genetic evaluation of hypercholesterolemia utilizing a cost-effective, reflex-testing approach

Profile Information A profile is a group of laboratory tests that are ordered and performed together under a single Mayo Test ID. Profile information lists the test performed, inclusive of the test fee, when a profile is ordered and includes reporting names and individual availability.

Test IDReporting NameAvailable SeparatelyAlways Performed
ADHIFH/ADH Genetic InterpretationNoYes

Reflex Tests Lists tests that may or may not be performed, at an additional charge, depending on the result and interpretation of the initial tests

Test IDReporting NameAvailable SeparatelyAlways Performed
LDLMPLDLR Large Del/DupYes, (order LDLM)No
LDLSPLDLR, Full Gene SequenceYes, (order LDLRS)No

Testing Algorithm Delineates situations when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

If APOB genotype is negative, LDLSP / Familial Hypercholesterolemia, LDLR Full Gene Sequencing will be performed at an additional charge.


If LDLR full gene sequence is negative, LDLMP / Familial Hypercholesterolemia, LDLR Large Deletion/Duplication, Molecular Analysis will be performed at an additional charge.
