Lipid Profile Test
A lipid profile, also known as lipid test, cholesterol panel, coronary risk panel, and lipid panel, measures the level of good and bad cholesterol along with triglycerides in the blood. This includes measuring the levels of different parameters like low-density lipoproteins (LDL), very-low-density lipoproteins (VLDL), and high-density lipoproteins (HDL), triglycerides, total cholesterol, and cholesterol/HDL ratio among others.

"Good" cholesterol is commonly referred to as HDL (high-density lipoprotein). This is due to the fact that it absorbs other types of cholesterol and carries it away from the arteries and back to the liver, where it is excreted.
LDL (low-density cholesterol) is referred to as the ”bad“ cholesterol because it can build up on the walls of blood vessels, narrowing the passageways. If a blood clot forms and gets stuck in the narrowed passageway, it can cause a heart attack or stroke.
The lipid profile examines the levels of Low-density lipoprotein (LDL), High-density lipoprotein (HDL), Triglycerides and Total cholesterol.
