Tests included with your home test.
Lipoprotein(a) is a type of lipoprotein, just as LDL-C is. And, just like LDL, everyone has it. However, some people are genetically predisposed to having higher levels of Lp(a). If you do, your LDL-cholesterol is much more likely to form plaques, which raises your risk of heart disease.
High-sensitivity C-Reactive Protein measures inflammation in your body. While inflammation can come from a variety of sources, serum values of hsCRP of 3.0 or greater have been consistently correlated with an increased risk of cardiac events such as heart attack or stroke.
Cholesterol is a fatty substance in all of your cells that gets a bad rap but is necessary for life. Without it, you couldn’t make hormones like vitamin D! If it’s too high, it can increase heart disease risk, but total cholesterol is not the whole story. Total cholesterol means LDL-C + HDL-C + non-HDL-C
Low-density lipoprotein (LDL-C) actually refers to the low-density lipoprotein-bound fraction of your cholesterol and is commonly called “bad cholesterol.” LDL-C is what becomes oxidized in blood-vessel walls (the endothelium), creating plaques, and thus increasing the risk of cardiac events.
High-density lipoprotein (HDL-C) actually refers to the high-density lipoprotein-bound fraction of your cholesterol and is commonly called “good cholesterol.” HDL-C is considered “good” because it acts like a “shuttle” to package cholesterol and bus it out of the bloodstream and into the liver for further processing. The higher your HDL-C, the better.
If your HDL-C is good, then it stands to reason that non-HDL-C must be not-so-good, right? Pretty much. Studies show that higher levels of non-HDL-C (which is just Total Cholesterol minus HDL-C) equate to higher cardiac risk.
Triglycerides are a type of long-chain lipids. Excessive levels of triglycerides may often occur because of genetics (family history) or high consumption of carbohydrates. High TG levels, along with other lipids, may raise cardiac risk.
This test measures the proportion of glycated hemoglobin, or hemoglobin A1C, in your blood. This is the percentage of hemoglobin in your blood that is bound to glucose, and represents your average blood glucose over an approximately three-month period. It should be less than 5.7 % if normal. If prediabetic, your HbA1C is 5-7-6.4%, and diabetic if 6.5% or greater per CDC guidelines. The numbers used to be 7.0% but are stricter now. We now know if your HbA1C level is >5.7%, your cardiac risk is also increased.
EAG is a reading that attempts to convert your A1C level into a familiar mg/dL of estimated average glucose over a three-month period. If your EAG is unusually high, just as with your HbA1C, your cardiac risk will also be elevated.
This is our calculated average of your blood pressure readings that you have entered into our app. Blood pressure is critical to assessing cardiac risk.
Nitric oxide, represented as NO, is a chemical messenger crucial to arterial function. If your nitric oxide levels are low, it indicates that the endothelium (lining of your arteries) is unhealthy, which makes you more likely to be subject to a cardiac event.
Visceral fat refers to the fat that is deep within your abdominal cavity, lining the peritoneum, omentum, and covering the organs of the abdomen (the viscera). Fat you can’t easily exercise away. The more of it you have, the higher your cardiac risk.

"We always took our heart health for granted. Through B100 we learned that having a healthy heart is within our control. However, with my husband's work schedule, it is impossible for him to take time off work for a doctor's appointment. Thanks to B100 he was able to check his labs from home and we got great recommendations. We look forward to growing together to B100, a heart healthy 100!"
Learn Your LubDub Grade
By receiving a LubDub Grade of an A, this means you are doing awesome, and are at very low risk for developing heart disease. We recommend that you repeat annually to ensure you are staying on course.
By receiving a LubDub Grade of a B, this means you have some borderline risks, and are low risk for developing heart disease. However, you need to take precautions to ensure your risk stratification does not increase. We recommend that you repeat annually to ensure you are staying on course.
By receiving a LubDub Grade of a C, this means there are some concerning elements that place you at moderate risk for heart disease. We recommend that you make immediate lifestyle changes and repeat every 6 months.
By receiving a LubDub Grade of a D, this means you are at high risk for heart disease and should be under the care of a cardiologist. If you don’t have a cardiologist and need a recommendation, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We recommend that you repeat every 6 months.
- Heart disease is preventable 80% of the time.
- 99% of heart attacks are preventable.
- The problem is, people don’t check on their heart health anywhere near as much as they should.
- Access to proper testing requires time consuming doctor visits.
- Depending on a person’s insurance, it can be costly.

Here are some questions we usually get.
The B100 Method is a comprehensive, app-based program designed by a board-certified cardiologist to identify heart disease risk, provide meaningful recommendations to help reduce your risk, and give you ongoing support to stay on track.
When a doctor listens to your heart with a stethoscope, if your heart has a healthy rhythm, only two heart sounds, S1 and S2, should be heard: S1 is the longer one, “lub,” and S2, the shorter one, “dub.” We came up with the LubDub Grade to be a simple system to represent your health results as expressed from A to D. Those who have an A grade are in “Awesome” health, whereas those with a C or D LubDub Grade are at significantly elevated cardiac risk, and should heed the recommendations given by the B100 Method.
We don’t accept insurance at this time. We work to keep our tests as affordable as possible, and our test costs are generally lower than the costs incurred from a trip to a healthcare provider.
We accept many Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and Health Savings Accounts (HSA) cards. They can be used in the same way that a debit or credit card would be used at checkout.
