Why is the Test Done?

This panel of tests is done assess one's risk of cardiovascular disease and accordingly guide therapy. It includes: A lipid panel typically includes:

  • Total cholesterol—measures all the cholesterol in all the lipoprotein particles
  • High-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C)—measures the cholesterol in HDL particles; often called "good cholesterol" because HDL-C takes up excess cholesterol and carries it to the liver for removal.
  • Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C)—calculates or measures the cholesterol in LDL particles; often called "bad cholesterol" because it deposits excess cholesterol in walls of blood vessels, which can contribute to atherosclerosis. Usually, the amount of LDL-C is calculated using the results of total cholesterol, HDL-C, and triglycerides.
  • Triglycerides—measures all the triglycerides in all the lipoprotein particles; most is in the very low-density lipoproteins (VLDL)

How to prepare for the Test:

The test requires a blood sample, which is drawn through a needle from a vein in your arm. You need to be fasting for at least 10-12 hrs before this test.
