Cholesterol Test Overview
Cholesterol is a waxy, fat like-substance with steroid structure. It is synthesized in many types of tissue particularly liver and intestinal wall and found in every cell of the body. Source of cholesterol is either newly synthesized or from dietary intake. Cholesterol is carried in the blood attached to the protein called lipoprotein. Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) transports cholesterol throughout the body. At times, LDL builds up in the arterial walls making the walls narrow and hard. High-density lipoprotein (HDL), transports excess cholesterol back to the liver that’s why it is called as good cholesterol.
