Lipid Profile Test in Chennai

Starts from 500*

A complete cholesterol test is also called a lipid profile test. A lipid profile is used for examining cholesterol levels, triglycerides, and cholesterol ratio in the blood. It is, therefore, a blood test. Cholesterol is a wax-like substance in the blood needed for the development of healthy cells. Some amount of cholesterol is considered normal. A person with high cholesterol level usually remains asymptomatic in the initial stages. Therefore, it is vital to get lipid profile tests done frequently, especially if you are above 30 or have heart problems running in the family.

About lipid profile test

Why is the lipid profile Test done?

A lipid profile test is done:

  • For examining cholesterol and triglycerides levels in the blood
  • To check the risk for developing cardiovascular disease
  • To track the progress of the treatment being given for lowering lipid levels
  • To check the efficacy of the prescribed drugs being consumed
What does the lipid profile Test measure?

There are four types of fats present in the blood that are measured in a lipid profile test:

  • Triglycerides: Unwanted calories are converted into triglycerides and stored in fat cells.
  • High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL): Good cholesterol responsible for eliminating bad cholesterol.
  • Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL): Bad cholesterol that gets settled in the arteries and can cause strokes and heart attacks.
  • Total Cholesterol: Includes both good and bad cholesterol present in the blood.
Risk/side effects of lipid profile test

No side effects are associated with a lipid profile test, although, for a few days, some pain might be felt in the area from where the blood is taken using a needle. Covering it with a bandaid reduces the chances of an infection. Avoid lifting bulky items for a couple of hours after the test. Also, you can consume food and drinks after giving your blood sample for the lipid profile test.

What are the parameters and other tests included in the lipid profile test?
  • Total Cholesterol
  • Triglycerides
  • Non-HDL Cholesterol
  • Total Cholesterol/HDL Cholesterol Ratio
  • Cholesterol – LDL
  • LDL/HDL Ratio
  • Very Low Density Lipoprotein
  • Cholesterol – HDL (high-density lipoproteins)
  • Low density lipoprotein

FAQs

When is the lipid profile test performed?

You can go for the lipid profile test if you develop the following symptoms:

  • Hypertension
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Frequent pain in the chest
  • Pain in upper back
  • Frequent heartburn or indigestion
  • Problems in breathing
  • Pain in jaw and teeth
  • Headache

If you are in the recovery process after suffering a heart attack or are a regular smoker or drinker, you can also go for the lipid profile test.

IHow is the lipid profile test performed?

A lipid profile test is done by withdrawing a blood sample from your vein through the use of a needle. It can be performed at a preferred clinic, hospital, or a laboratory. Home test sample collection facilities are also available.

How to prepare for a lipid profile test?

Do not consume anything (except water) for 12 hours before going for a lipid profile test. Do inform your doctor about any medications that you are taking, since he/she can advise you to stop their intake for a few days before your lipid profile test. The reason for the same is that some medications can cause your cholesterol levels to rise and therefore, affect your lipid profile test results.

THINGS TO KNOW AFTER GETTING TESTED

Interpreting the lipid profile test results

Cholesterol levels are measured in milligrams (mg) of cholesterol per deciliter (dL) of blood. The table below highlights the normal ranges of cholesterol and other fats present in the blood for an adult (18+ yrs):

Name Normal range
Total Cholesterol Less than 200 mg/dL
LDL 70 – 130 mg/dL
HDL 45 – 60 mg/dL
Triglycerides 10 – 150 mg/dL
Non-HDL Less than 130 mg/dL
Cholesterol/HDL 4.0

If your cholesterol levels are present in abnormal ranges, you may be asked to go for other tests to check for the causes. Lower amounts of LDL, total cholesterol, and triglycerides are good for the body. On the other hand, increased levels of HDL are seen as valuable for the body.

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
