    What is a Lipid Profile Test?

    Lipids are fatty substances that are stored in our bodies as a source of energy. However, lipid disorders like high cholesterol could affect our body functions and cause life-threatening conditions like strokes, heart attacks and more. Lipid profile tests are done to keep this lipid number in check and to prevent such conditions.

    Why is a Lipid Profile Test performed?

    A Lipid Profile test is performed to assess the increase in your cholesterol and measure the risk of strokes, heart attacks, and blood vessel diseases like DVT in you. There are typically no signs or symptoms associated with high cholesterol levels.

    The procedure helps assess and analyse the number of fats in the blood. Treatment may be initiated to lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart failure if there is too much cholesterol throughout the blood.

    It is a set of blood tests used to determine the levels of four different forms of lipids in our blood:

    • LDL, a bad form of cholesterol that keeps itself and other plaque-forming components in arteries only, leading to an increased chance of heart attack & stroke.
    • Triglycerides
    • Total cholesterol
    • HDL cholesterol, a good form of cholesterol that takes plaque-forming components and other cholesterol to the liver to convert it into bile and eliminate it from the body.

    A doctor may suggest you get this test done for a variety of reasons. It could be a part of a regular health checkup or as a part of required treatment. It is recommended for adults (irrespective of where they stand in terms of being at risk) to get this test done every four to six years.

    Smoking, being overweight, unhealthy diet, a lack of physical exercise, hypertension, pre-existing heart disease, being diabetic or pre-diabetic, etc. puts you at the risk of developing such lipid-related issues more and could benefit from regular lipid tests.
