Why take Lipid Profile Test?

Total blood cholesterol is a collective term involving estimation of LDL, HDL, VLDL and Triglycerides. Test results give a preliminary assessment of the individuals risk for heart disease, which guides further specific testing to reach a definitive diagnosis.

 

LDL Cholesterol

LDL Cholesterol carries cholesterol from the liver to the cell membrane where it’s used, and if excess it remains in the blood and accumulates on the walls of blood vessels, leading to blockage of blood. Hence LDL cholesterol is commonly called as the Bad Cholesterol and its important uphold optimal levels

 

HDL Cholesterol

HDL Cholesterol is termed as good cholesterol because it plays a critical role in removing the bad cholesterol from the blood thereby protecting you from cardiovascular diseases. A higher number is desirable.

 

Triglycerides

Triglycerides are how your body stores fat and an elevated level is directly linked to heart disease.
