Lipid (Cholesterol) Panel Testing


  • Measures lipids-fats and fatty substances used as a source of energy by your body.
  • Lipids include cholesterol, triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein (HDL), and low-density lipoprotein (LDL).
  • Measures: Total cholesterol level, Triglyceride level, HDL (“good“) cholesterol and LDL (“bad“) cholesterol.
  • Lipids are found in your blood and are stored in tissues. They are an important part of cells, and they help keep your body working normally.
  • Lipid disorders such as high cholesterol, may lead to life-threatening illnesses such as coronary artery disease (CAD), heart attack or stroke.
