Why Run this Test?

Lipid peroxidation is a well-established mechanism of cellular injury and is used as an indicator of oxidative stress, also known as “free radical damage.”

The elevation of lipid peroxides serves as an early warning of the potential long-term effects of oxidative stress. The outcome of long-term oxidative stress is chronic degenerative disease, an example being the peroxidation of low-density lipoproteins contributing to atherosclerosis. Oxidative stress can result from exposure to toxins or pathogens, inappropriate lifestyle – such as over-exercising or smoking – or byproducts of normal metabolism.
