Cholesterol and Lipid Panel
When it comes to heart health, measure what matters with this Cholesterol and Lipid Panel Test.
This cholesterol and lipid panel measures both LDL and HDL cholesterol levels to help you get a better picture of your heart health.
Lipids are microscopic fatty substances (including cholesterol and triglycerides) within your body. Assessing them can reveal much about your overall health. For example, high levels of “bad” LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol can build up in the walls of your arteries, increasing your risk for heart disease. Conversely, high levels of “good” HDL (high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol can remove LDL cholesterol from your body, reducing your risk for heart disease.
High cholesterol usually has no symptoms, meaning you may have high cholesterol without knowing it. Knowing your cholesterol numbers is the first step towards a healthy heart and healthy life.
