About Our Lipid/Cholesterol Test Panel
The Lipid Panel is used to measure overall cholesterol levels in the body. Lipids are various forms of fat in the body and include cholesterol types. Higher levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL, also known as "bad cholesterol") are associated with increased risk of heart attack.
LDL helps cause atherosclerosis, a hardening of the veins that leads to plaque build-up and heart attacks.
This blood test panel measures levels of:
- Total Cholesterol
- HDL - "Good Cholesterol"
- LDL - "Bad Cholesterol"
Patients should fast 9-12 hours prior to collection for the lipid test panel.
