Cholesterol Testing (Lipid Panel) Tests


FAQ

  1. What is a lipid panel?

    A lipid panel tests your cholesterol and lipid values, including:

    • HDL (good) cholesterol
    • LDL (bad) cholesterol
    • Triglycerides

    A lipid panel may help evaluate dietary recommendations and identify risk factors for conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes.

  2. 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.

  3. 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
  4. 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.

  5. For how long should you fast for a lipid panel?

    The average fasting time before your blood lipid panel is 8-12 hours.

  6. Do I need to visit a doctor?
