Medical Text

Cholesterol Lipid Panel Test Details

With a single finger stick, we can run this test.  Test requires 12 hour fasting.

 

With this test, the patient will receive results for the following:

  • TC - Total Cholesterol

  • HDL - High Density Lipoproteins - good cholesterol

  • LDL - Low Density Lipoproteins - bad cholesterol

  • TRG - Triglycerides

  • TC/HDL Ratio - the ration between Total Cholesterol and High Density Lipoproteins

Why is This Test Useful?

Cholesterol is a major cause of Coronary Heart Disease (CHD), and large clinical trials show that lipid-lowering therapy substantially reduces risk for CHD.  

 

It is recommended that a fasting lipid profile should be performed at least every 5 years in all adults aged 20 years and older.  

 

While the major focus of the studies has been to lower LDL (bad cholesterol), HDL (good cholesterol) and triglycerides are also important to monitor and treat.

 

Goals

  1. Total Cholesterol - less than 200mg/dL

  2. LDL Cholesterol (bad) - less than 100mg/dL

  3. Triglyceride - less than 150mg/dL

  4. HDL Cholesterol (good) - greater or equal to 60mg/dL

* Lipid Profile also calculates the TC/HDL ratio, non-HDL cholesterol, and estimates the level of LDL cholesterol (referred to as the "bad cholesterol"). TC values of less than 200mg/dL are desirable. HDL levels greater than or equal to 60 mg/dL are protective. Normal fasting TRG levels should be below 150 mg/dL. LDL levels are optimal below 100 mg/dL.
