Lipid Profile Panel Test

The Lipid Profile Test screens for certain diseases and measures your risk of cardiovascular disease. It usually involves fasting. 

The Lipid Panel includes:

  • Three measurements of your cholesterol levels
  • A measurement of your Triglycerides

 

People take lipid profile tests for the following reasons:

  • To check and screen your current cholesterol level to see if your results were previously abnormal or if you have risk factors like heart disease.
  • To screen how our body reacts to treatment, such as medications for cholesterol and lifestyle changes
  • To test for Pancreatitis, chronic kidney disease, and hypothyroidism.

 

This package includes the following tests: 

  • Cholesterol
  • Triglycerides
  • HDL and LDL

 

Lipid Profile Test measures the following:

  • Total cholesterol – Your overall cholesterol level
  • Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol – Known as “bad cholesterol,” this can raise your risk of cardiovascular disease.
  • Very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol – Cholesterol in low amounts, especially if the blood sample comes from a fasting sample. 
  • High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol – Also called “good cholesterol,” it helps offset the buildup of LDL in the blood vessels
  • Triglycerides – Fat that comes from the food that is digested. 

 

S Lipid Profile Blood Test costs PHP 465.00.

  • Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol – Should measure Below 100 mg/dL
  • For those with diabetes: Below 70 mg/dL
  • Triglycerides – Ideally, it should be below 150 mg/dL

 

Questions About Lipid Profile Test

 

Why is fasting necessary for a lipid profile test?

You must usually fast for 10-12 hours before the test. This is necessary to minimize variation since eating can affect lipid levels and to calculate LDL Cholesterol better. The equation for LDL cholesterol can be interfered with after eating. 

 

What diseases are tested for in a lipid profile?

The diseases tested for are heart disease, stroke, heart attack, and cardiovascular diseases. The lipid panel analyzes the amount of cholesterol in the blood. 

 

What is the desirable / optimal level for lipid profile?

  • Total cholesterol: lower than 200 mg/dL
  • LDL cholesterol: less than 100 mg/dL
  • HDL cholesterol: less than 60 mg/dL
  • Triglycerides: less than 150 mg/dL

 

What happens if the lipid profile is high?

If one’s lipid profile is high, one is at a higher risk for heart disease. Hyperlipidemia is a disease associated with High levels of lipids (fats) in the blood.
