Lipid Profile Test

Importance of the Test

What is a lipid profile test? A lipid profile test also known as lipid panel test is a very comprehensive cholesterol test. Then the doctors use the result to determine the quality of the “good” and “bad” cholesterol it also checks for triglycerides (a kind of fat) in your blood. High cholesterol is a grave condition which will lead to cardiovascular disease in the future. We have given a list of risk factors these people are very vulnerable to cardiovascular obesity, excessive alcohol intake, smoking, a sedentary lifestyle, and a family history of heart diseases and high cholesterol. We recommend you to start getting your cholesterol levels tested after getting around the age of 35 or before if you are a male. If you are a female, we recommend you to check your cholesterol when you are 45 or start sooner than the age. Just for precaution purposes we recommend you to get your cholesterol tested when you enter the age group of 20 and above for five years. The lipid profile test checks for four vital aspects of cholesterol, most of the time being total cholesterol, high-density cholesterol, low-level cholesterol, and triglycerides.
