LIPID PANEL (CHOLESTEROL LIPIDS WITH RATIO)
This Lipid Panel includes the following tests:
1. Total Cholesterol
4. HDL/LDL Ratio
The Lipids Panel can determine if you have abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels. These are important because they can also help you and your doctor determine if you’re at risk for heart disease or other coronary (heart) illnesses.
Cholesterol is fat that is produced by the liver. It can also be obtained from foods like cheeseburgers, pizza, etc. There are two kinds of cholesterol – the good and the bad.
1. High Density Lipoproteins (HDL) = Good cholesterol.
2. Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL) = Bad cholesterol.
Basically, you want a high HDL and a low LDL (see below for optimal results).
The Lipids Panel is a great panel to establish a “baseline” (an initial reading or level of results) and continuously monitor over time to ensure healthy results and take necessary action in elevated levels.
When all of these tests are evaluated together, your physician can determine if you would benefit from a cholesterol maintenance medication. If you’re already taking cholesterol medication, your doctor may require a more detailed test from ANY LAB TEST NOW such as the Cholesterol Medication Maintenance Panel before a refill can be completed.
Why Do I Need It?:
Is your heart healthy?
Measuring your Total Cholesterol and other levels is one method to detect whether you’re at risk for heart or coronary artery diseases, among others.
