About Our Lipid/Cholesterol Panel

Fasting Instructions:

Fasting is required for this lab test. You should not consume food or beverages other than water for at least 8 hours prior to visiting the lab. If you choose not to fast, it may affect your results.

What does this panel test for?

This test looks at overall cholesterol levels and triglycerides (the main components of natural fats and oils). Lipids are various forms of fat in the body and include cholesterol types. Lipids are a type of fat and fat-like substances found in cells and are used as a source of energy like glucose. Two notable lipids: cholesterol and triglycerides, are the main things tested in this panel. Monitoring and maintaining proper cholesterol levels is important to your health because the extra cholesterol may be deposited on the walls of blood vessels as plaque, which can narrow or even block blood vessels and lead to heart disease or stroke.

Specifically, you will see these measures in your results:

  • Total Cholesterol: The total amount of cholesterol in your blood.
  • LDL “Bad Cholesterol”: Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, this is known as bad cholesterol because it can lead to a hardening and clogging of your arteries.
  • HDL “Good cholesterol”: High-density lipoprotein cholesterol, this type of cholesterol helps to remove LDL from your blood.
  • Triglycerides: Unused calories are stored by the body as triglycerides in fat (lipid) cells.
