A Lipid Profile blood test, also known as lipid panel, assesses the level of specific fat molecules called lipids in the blood. This test determines the amount of total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and triglycerides.

The top Lipid Profile blood tests are available in Jubilee Hills, Kukatpally, Madhapur, AS Rao Nagar, Kondapur.

A high level of lipids in your blood might lead to a buildup in arteries and blood vessels. This can potentially damage the arteries and increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases. 

With a lipid profile test, one can determine the risk of heart ailments, heart attack, cardiovascular issues, and stroke. Generally, the Lipid Profile test cost is not too high. the You can book the Lipid Profile blood test via Apollo 24|7. The Lipid Profile test price offered by Apollo 24|7 is quite competitive.

Apollo 24|7 offers a complete lipid profile test which includes six tests:

Total Cholesterol: It checks the overall level of cholesterol — LDL, VLDL and HDL cholesterol — in the blood.
HDL Cholesterol - Serum: It assesses HDL cholesterol, also known as the 'good' cholesterol. HDL helps erase the LDL cholesterol from the blood.
VLDL Cholesterol: VLDL cholesterol can be the reason for the increased risk of getting cardiovascular diseases. VLDL is not measured directly. Instead, it is calculated by assuming it is 20% of your triglycerides level.
Non-HDL Cholesterol: Non-HDL cholesterol is also known as LDL cholesterol or 'bad' cholesterol. Too much LDL can stick to the walls of arteries, which can increase the risk of stroke, heart attack, and atherosclerosis.
Cholesterol/HDL Ratio: It measures the ratio of cholesterol to HDL and offers insight into the risk of developing coronary heart diseases. If the ratio is higher, the risk is also higher. Having a ratio under 5:1 is desirable, and a ratio of 3.5:1 is considered extremely good.
Triglycerides - Serum: The fat that comes from the food you consume is broken down into smaller molecules known as triglycerides. If triglycerides are high, it indicates a risk of developing heart-related diseases. Factors such as obesity, drinking too much alcohol, unmanaged diabetes, and a high-calorie diet contribute to high triglycerides.
The lipid profile test is most commonly referred to as a cholesterol test.

faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Before your lipid panel test, it's crucial to maintain a balanced diet and avoid alcohol or heavy meals for at least 12 hours. Regular physical activity is also recommended, but refrain from intense exercises just before the test.
If your results are not within the lipid profile test normal range, first consult your doctor, who may recommend lifestyle modifications like healthier eating and regular exercise. If these changes don't improve your results after retesting, you may need to see a specialist or consider medication.
Alongside a serum lipid profile test, other tests like blood pressure measurement, glucose level check, and body mass index (BMI) calculation can provide a more comprehensive insight into your cardiovascular health.
