Lipid profile (Cholesterol and triglycerides)

What's the purpose of this test?

The Lipid Profile Test is a series of tests to determine the level of cholesterol and other kinds of fats within your blood. This test can help assess your potential risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD).

Test parameters:

  • HDL (High-density lipoproteins)
  • LDL (Low-density lipoproteins)
  • VLDL (Very low-density lipoproteins)
  • Total cholesterol
  • Triglycerides

What's the importance of lipids?

Lipids comprise a variety of fats, fat-like substances and other fats that are extremely beneficial components of cells in our bodies. They also are a major supply of energy. Cholesterol and triglycerides are the two most important lipids and cholesterol and Triglycerides through the blood through lipoproteins. Each lipoprotein particle is composed comprised of cholesterol and phospholipids triglycerides, as well as proteins.

Lipoproteins: What types?

They are classified according to their density into three categories. They are:

  • HDL (High-density lipoproteins)
  • LDL (Low-density lipoproteins)
  • VLDL (Very low-density lipoproteins)
  • Total cholesterol
  • Triglycerides

HDLs (HDL) have been referred to as healthy cholesterol, while low-density lipoproteins (LDL) are considered bad cholesterol. High-density cholesterol is a source of cholesterol that flows to the liver from different areas of the body. The liver's function is to eliminate cholesterol from your body, and HDL assists in moving cholesterol out of your arteries. The higher amount of HDL assists in decreasing the risk of developing coronary heart disease. LDL can attach itself to the arteries' wall and can block them, leading to an atherosclerosis condition. It is the total of HDL along with LDL. By analyzing overall cholesterol, and HDL numbers, total cholesterol-to-HDL ratios can be determined, based on which coronary stroke and heart disease can be identified.

Why is this test being conducted?

The test of lipid profiles is performed to determine if a person is experiencing abnormal or normal cholesterol levels within the body. Doctors may suggest conducting this test if the patient is suffering from health issues such as high blood pressure, diabetes and has heart disease having an ancestral medical history that suggests heart problems. Suffer from a heart attack.

This test is also performed to assess the likelihood to develop heart problems. Suppose someone is currently on the treatment for anti-cholesterol drugs such as statins. In that case, the doctor might suggest taking this test to assess the effectiveness of the treatment and cholesterol levels within the body.

This allows the doctor to identify the cause of the health condition. In general, when a person is diagnosed with hypercholesterolemia or atherosclerosis and is admitted to a hospital for a routine examination,

the doctor could request a blood lipid profile test that gives an accurate picture of the disease. Most of the time, this test is carried out in conjunction with other tests such as ECG (ECG) or echocardiogram cardiac catheterization.

Precautions:

Smoking or taking medications such as statins (simvastatin, Rosuvastatin) could alter the levels of lipids present in the blood. Therefore, inform the doctor or technician of all medications you take and medical conditions before taking the test.

Frequency:

For adults who have zero risk factors, the test is recommended every four to six years. For those who are over 20 years old, the test should be performed every four to six years. The time frame for this test is based on many factors such as age, heart disease and high blood pressure, physically inactive, etc.

If you have diabetes, suffer from heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure, it is recommended to test each year. The Lipid Profile test is suggested at regular intervals to assess the changes in your lifestyle like exercise and diet to assess treatment efficacy.

Also called LP Blood The Lipid Test LP.

Test Preparation

Inform your physician if you are taking any medications or have any allergies other medical conditions that could affect the Lipid Profile. Your doctor will provide specific instructions according to your health condition and what you need to do for your Lipid Profile.

To take this exam, you could be required to fast for a minimum of nine to twelve hours before the exam. If you are a young person who is not at risks factors such as diabetes or high blood pressure, the test might be suggested without fasting.

Understanding your test results

The standard reference range can differ based on gender, age and health history, for example.

If HDL values in the blood are higher than normal, this could indicate a small chance of developing heart-related disease. If the test results are lower than normal, this indicates an increased risk of developing heart-related disease.

When LDL levels in the blood are higher than normal levels, It could indicate that there is a significant likelihood of developing heart disease as well as other related conditions such as coronary heart attacks (blockage circulation of the blood supply to the muscle of the heart) and atherosclerosis (deposition of cholesterol, fat and other substances inside the artery wall) and blockage of blood flow caused by cholesterol deposition in the arteries, obesity, consumption of foods high in fat smoking, a lack of physical activity, etc.

Suppose VLDL blood sugar levels have risen higher than normal. In that case, this could mean that there is a significant likelihood of developing heart disease as well as other related conditions such as the heart attack (blockage circulation of the blood supply to the muscle of the heart) and atherosclerosis (deposition of cholesterol, fat and other substances inside the artery wall) and blockage of blood flow because of fat accumulation in the arterial arteries, obesity and high intake of fat-rich foods smoking, less physical activity, etc.

Suppose your blood cholesterol levels are greater than the normal range. In that case, it could indicate that you are at a low possibility of developing heart disease and physical activity that is good as well as inflammation, infection or liver cirrhosis (liver damage that leads to liver failure) and inherited lipoprotein deficiency (a genetic disorder where the person is not able to produce an enzyme called lipoprotein lipase that aids in breaking down cholesterol molecules).

If you have abnormal results from your test, it does not necessarily mean that you suffer from a medical condition. Discuss with your physician the results of your test. Your doctor could recommend different tests based on the results you have received.
