Lipid Panel At-Home Cholesterol Test
Lipids (also known as fatty substances) can tell you a lot about the state of your overall health. For example, high levels of “bad” or LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol can build up in the walls of your arteries and increase your risk for heart disease; however, high levels of “good” or HDL (high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol can actually reduce your risk by removing excess LDL from the body.
This cholesterol and lipids panel measures the fatty substances used in the body as energy that contribute to heart health (including cholesterol and triglycerides) to help assess the risk of heart disease.
