Product Description

Measures cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the body.


The Lipid panel measures the following:

Cholesterol, Total: All cholesterol in the body.

Triglycerides: The amount of triglycerides in lipoprotein particles.

HDL Cholesterol: High-density lipoprotein (HDL) Measures HDL particles, often referred to as good cholesterol. HDL is responsible for carrying cholesterol to the liver for removal.

LDL Cholesterol: Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) Measures LDL particles, often referred to as bad cholesterol. Excess cholesterol is stored in the walls of blood vessels, which can lead to and/or promote various cardiac diseases and issues.

The Lipid panel is normally a part of a standard physical or routine blood draw. It is also commonly used during follow-ups that revolve around hormone treatment or other health conditions. Is a very regular part of follow-up when treating any cardiovascular condition and is an important test when trying to keep cholesterol levels under control.
