About Cholesterol (LDL) Test

Why is an LDL cholesterol test done?

An LDL cholesterol test is done to keep a check on the concentration of the bad cholesterol in the bloodstream. High levels of LDL in the body can cause the arteries to get blocked, a condition known as arteriosclerosis. This can cause the heart to not function properly.

While an unhealthy lifestyle does affect the LDL levels in the blood, certain diseases too cause an increase in cholesterol levels. Genetics too play a vital role in determining the cholesterol levels in the blood. These diseases include:

  • Liver diseases like cirrhosis or hepatitis
  • Type II diabetes
  • Kidney disease or renal failure
  • Pregnancy
  • Hypothyroidism
What does the LDL cholesterol test measure?

The body produces both high-density and low-density lipoproteins. While the HDL is considered to be good for the body, LDL often leads to the formation of plaques on the walls of the arteries and that causes narrowing of the passage.

A high concentration of LDL is not desirable because it leads to complications. But, many factors like age, gender, ethnicity, and medications can cause the levels of LDL to be high.

Potential risks/side effects of LDL cholesterol test

Talking of risks or side effects, the LDL cholesterol test carries no such threat with it. Apart from the slight discomfort that a person might feel when the injection is jabbed, drawing blood is fairly harmless. Lab technicians who perform LDL cholesterol tests are well-trained to identify the veins and perform the venipuncture as quickly and effectively as possible.

FAQs

How to lower the LDL levels?

Lowering the LDL or bad cholesterol in the body can be done by changing the lifestyle. Incorporating routine workouts, switching to a fat-free diet, quitting smoking, and lowering the consumption of alcohol can help a person reduce LDL levels.

Is it mandatory for people who are 45 years and above to routinely have their LDL levels checked?

Yes, people who are above the age of 45 years should have their lipid profiling done every 2 to 3 years. This will help them understand the changes they need to make in their diet.

Can fasting help decrease the levels of LDL cholesterol?

Fasting does help lower the LDL levels in the blood. But, fasting should be done only after consultation with the doctor.

THINGS TO KNOW AFTER GETTING TESTED

Interpreting the Cholesterol (LDL) test results

When it comes to LDL or bad cholesterol, the lower the concentration, the better it is. Doctors consider a value of 100 mg/dL to be optimum. When the concentration of LDL is between 100 mg/dL to 139 mg/dL, it is considered to be borderline. The patient is advised to follow a healthy lifestyle and go on a fat-free diet. Any concentration above 140 mg/dL is considered to be life-threatening.

LDL Range Health Risk
100 mg/dL NORMAL
100 -139 mg/dL Borderline
140 mg/dL Life-threatening

There are various factors that can affect the concentration of LDL cholesterol test results that are reflected in the lab results. Certain medications lower the levels and fasting too lowers the LDL concentrations.

Ms Sujata arrived on time and was very polite and caring throughout the process. Actually there was a mistake on my part where I couldn't attend her calls because I was not well and i feel asleep bcoz of my medicines. I had scheduled an appointment for my mother but Ms Sujata somehow reached my address by asking my neighbours. Such a lovely girl, and also the collection process was really smooth. Would absolutely recommend everyone to check out their services
