Blood Lipids

Also referred to as a lipid panel, lipid profile or cholesterol test. A Lipid Profile is a complete cholesterol test conducted through analysis of blood. It is used to measure the amount of “good” and “bad” cholesterol and triglycerides, a type of fat, in your blood. The Lipid Profile is used as part of a cardiac risk assessment to help determine an individual’s risk of heart disease and to help make decisions about the best or most appropriate form of treatment if one’s results are considered borderline or high.

Total Cholesterol
Total Choleseterol

Calculation of your cholesterol ratio is part of the risk assessment of heart disease. Guidelines for an optimal ratio are less than 4.5. A higher ratio figure means a higher risk of cardiovascular disease.

HDL Cholesterol
HDL Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a soft, fat-like substance found in all your body's cells. High-density lipoprotein (HDL), often referred to as ""good"" cholesterol, helps remove other forms of cholesterol from the bloodstream, by taking it back to the liver where it is broken down and taken from the body. Low-density lipoprotein (LDL), meanwhile, is referred to as ""bad"" cholesterol. LDL Cholesterol can build up within the walls of your arteries leading to a clot, which can in turn lead to a heart attack or stroke. There are no symptoms of this build-up and therefore screening of your cholesterol levels is an important part of prevention.

Triglycerides
Triglycerides are a type of fat (lipid) found in your blood. Having a high level of triglycerides in your blood can increase your chances of developing heart disease. The body converts unused calories into triglycerides, which are stored in fat cells. Regularly consuming more calories than you burn can lead to hypertriglyceridemia, or a high level of triglycerides, which can be an indicator of other conditions that could increase the risk of heart disease and stroke.
