Online Lipid Profile Screening Pack by carefit
The lipid profile test is a combination of tests that checks for abnormalities in the levels of lipids such as cholesterol and triglycerides which in high levels can increase the risk of coronary heart disease. This panel of tests are recommended for people who have diabetes, high blood pressure, smokers and people who have a high-fat diet.
What are the tests included in the Lipid Profile Screening Pack?
High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) Blood Test
- HDL cholesterol is often referred to as ‘good cholesterol’ as it removes excess cholesterol from the tissues and carries it to the liver for removal. The cholesterol test determines the amount of HDL C in the blood. A higher level of HDL C in the blood usually lowers the risk of heart attacks and strokes that can be caused due to plaque build- up.
Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) Blood Test
- LDL cholesterol is referred to as ‘bad cholesterol’. High levels of LDL in the body can lead to hardening of the arteries. When there are increased levels of cholesterol in the blood and it is not removed by HDL, the cholesterol is deposited in the blood vessel walls. These deposits which are called plaques harden the vessel walls constricting the blood flow and thus cause heart attacks. This cholesterol blood test helps determine the levels of LDL in a person’s blood.
- This test determines the ratio between good cholesterol (HDL) and bad cholesterol (LDL).
- Measures the amount of triglycerides in a person’s blood. Extra calories are converted to triglycerides which are a type of fat (lipid) in your body. The body stores these triglycerides which are released into the bloodstream when the body needs energy. These provide fuel for the muscles. People on high carbohydrate and high fat diets have higher levels of triglycerides in this blood putting the individual at a higher risk of a heart attack or stroke.
TC/HDL Cholesterol Ratio
- This ratio is determined by dividing the total cholesterol number by the HDL cholesterol number. The higher the ratio the more risk a person is at developing heart diseases.
Very Low Density Lipoprotein (VLDL) Test
- This test determines the levels of VLDL in the blood. VLDL cholesterol is made in the liver and released into the blood to supply the body tissues with triglycerides. High levels of VLDL are associated with the development of plaque deposit in the artery walls causing a risk of heart diseases. The best way to lower your VLDL levels is to make dietary changes and include a good exercise regimen.
