    Total blood cholesterol is a collective term involving estimation of LDL, HDL, VLDL and Triglycerides. Test results give a preliminary assessment of the individuals risk for heart disease, which guides further specific testing to reach a definitive diagnosis.

    LDL Cholesterol
    LDL Cholesterol carries cholesterol from the liver to the cell membrane where it’s used, and if excess it remains in the blood and accumulates on the walls of blood vessels, leading to blockage of blood. Hence LDL cholesterol is commonly called as the Bad Cholesterol and its important uphold optimal levels

    HDL Cholesterol
    HDL Cholesterol is termed as good cholesterol because it plays a critical role in removing the bad cholesterol from the blood thereby protecting you from cardiovascular diseases. A higher number is desirable.

    Triglycerides are how your body stores fat and an elevated level is directly linked to heart disease.

Your doctor may order this test for you if he believes that you are under risk for elevated cholesterol. Your weight and BMI can give an indication for higher levels of cholesterol in blood. If you are obese or overweight, your doctor is most likely to get your lipids checked and monitored at regular intervals.

Cholesterol is a vital chemical present in the body and performs many functions such as coating the cells of the body-forming the cell membrane, producing certain components called bile acids which aid in digestion of fats. Additionally, it performs an imperative role in production of certain vital nutrients like vitamin D and sex hormones like estrogen, progesterone and testosterone (steroid hormones).

Elevated levels of cholesterol indicate a risk for heart disease, atherosclerosis and stroke and hence estimating blood cholesterol levels is one of the most fundamental and critical test in routine screening and health checkup.
