    This test is not a routine test. Your doctor will order this test to check for risk of stroke, heart attack or other heart-related conditions only if you have certain risk factors, such as a family history of heart disease. This test estimates the level of lipoprotein (a) in the blood. Lipoproteins are composed of protein and fat that carry cholesterol through the bloodstream.
