Calculated biomarkers are biomarkers that are calculated (or derived) from other biomarkers. In Clovi's system, these calculated biomarkers are BMI, LDL, VLDL, Non-HDL Cholesterol, Cholesterol Ratio and Fat Free Mass Index. NOTE: If you think there are other calculated biomarkers, please contact email@example.com to add them.
In an effort to reconcile Clovi's internal calculations of these biomarkers with point-of-care systems (e.g. Cholestech and CardioChek), we are introducing new biomarkers that are distinct from the ones you use already. For this reason you may see the following pairs in your Screening Form:
- BMI and Calculated BMI
- LDL and Calculated LDL
- VLDL and Calculated VLDL
- Non-HDL Cholesterol and Calculated Non-HDL Cholesterol
- Cholesterol Ratio and Calculated Cholesterol Ratio
- Fat Free Mass Index and Calculated Fat Free Mass Index
If you'd like to trust Clovi with the calculated biomarkers, you can remove the extra biomarker from the Screening Form. Visit here for instructions: https://clovi.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115002929173-How-do-I-remove-a-metric-from-the-Screening-Form-
This allows you control over whether you want to control the values of derived biomarkers or let Clovi automate the calculations.
