About Test:

A Lipid Profile is a group of blood tests used to measure the levels of certain lipids or fats within the blood. The lipid profile helps gauge whether a person has a healthy, balanced diet, and whether they are at any risk for the development of cardiac problems. In case of high cholesterol, treatment plans and changes to diet can be suggested to prevent complications. The lipid profile is a regular health test that is advised every 3 to 6 years for adults or as advised by the doctor

What lipids are found in the blood?

Lipids are fats and substances similar to fats that are sources of energy. The digestive system absorbs fats from the food we eat and these are stored as lipids in the blood. We need to maintain healthy, balanced levels of these lipids in our blood to remain healthy. These lipids are:

  • High Density Lipoprotein (HDL): This is good cholesterol. It carries excess cholesterol deposits and takes them to the liver so that they can be filtered.
  • Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL): This is what we call bad cholesterol. It deposits itself on the walls of our blood vessels. Too much build-up of this type of cholesterol can lead to heart problems.
  • Triglycerides: These are the types of fats converted directly from the food we eat, and are stored in our body tissues for energy usage.
