Lipid Profile Test in Noida

Lipid Profile Test in Noida

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?

  • To check the efficacy of the prescribed drugs being consumed

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.

Also, you can consume food and drinks after giving your blood sample for the lipid profile test.

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.
