Lipid Panel

FAQ

  1. What is a lipid panel test?

    A lipid profile will measure different fat molecules (lipids) in the blood, including:

    • Total cholesterol
    • HDL cholesterol
    • LDL cholesterol
    • Triglycerides

    Lipids have vital functions in the body, like:

    • Making cell membranes flexible
    • Producing hormones
    • Absorbing vitamins
    • Storing energy

    However, too many or too few lipids in the blood can impact your health and lead to complications.

  2. What is included in a lipid panel test?

    A basic lipid panel will usually include all types of fat molecules; those that are considered "bad," like:

    • Total cholesterol
    • LDL cholesterol
    • VLDL cholesterol
    • Triglycerides

    HDL cholesterol, considered a "good fat", is also an important part of a lipid panel. Ratios between these markers are measured to understand your lipid profile better.

  3. What does a lipid panel test for?

    A lipid profile may help evaluate excess or deficiencies of lipids in the blood and the need for dietary interventions or medications for a specific health condition. It can help identify risk factors for conditions such as:

    • High blood pressure
    • Atherosclerosis
    • Insulin resistance
    • Coronary artery disease
  4. Does a lipid panel require fasting?

    Yes. To get the most accurate result for a lipid panel test, fast for at least 8-12 hours before the test.

  5. Do I need to visit a doctor?

    No doctor visit needed.

  6. How do I get my results?

    You get your results via email as soon as they are available.
