What is a lipid panel?
A lipid panel tests your cholesterol and lipid values, including:
- HDL (good) cholesterol
- LDL (bad) cholesterol
A lipid panel may help evaluate dietary recommendations and identify risk factors for conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes.
Who needs a lipid panel?
You may need a lipid panel if:
- You're concerned about your cholesterol levels
- You have high cholesterol or triglycerides
- You have a family history of heart disease or diabetes
A lipid panel can help you understand how diet and lifestyle changes may benefit you. Nevertheless, everyone should get a lipid panel annually with their regular checkups.
How often should you test your lipids?
It is recommended to test your lipids at least once a year or after every lifestyle change, for example:
- If you have lost or gained a significant amount of weight
- Had surgery done on your body
What does a lipid panel test for?
A lipid panel test is used to monitor heart health by measuring the amount of cholesterol and triglycerides in your blood. It is used to identify a person's risk for atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and coronary artery disease.
For how long should you fast for a lipid panel?
The average fasting time before your blood lipid panel is 8–12 hours.
