A complete cholesterol test is called a Lipid Profile or Lipid Panel. This complete cholesterol test is done to determine the level of cholesterol (high or low) and triglycerides (main constituents of natural fats and oils) in your blood. Measuring the amount of cholesterol will help to determine the risk of heart diseases and to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

  • Total cholesterol - This test measures the amount of total cholesterol in your blood.

  • High-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) - called as ‘good cholesterol’ measures the amount of cholesterol in HDL particles. It removes excess cholesterol and thus helps in easy blood flow through the arteries.

  • Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) - Often called ‘bad cholesterol’ measures the amount of cholesterol in LDL. Due to the excess deposits of cholesterol in the walls of arteries, it reduces the flow of blood which causes a condition known as atherosclerosis. The amount of LDL-C is calculated by summing up total cholesterol, HDL-C, and triglycerides.

  • Triglycerides - Triglycerides are the type of fats deposited in the blood.
