Lipid Profile Test

Lipid profile test is a set of tests used to measure the amount of cholesterol and other types of fats present in your blood. This test is helpful in assessing the risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVD).

What is the importance of lipids?

Lipids are a bunch of fats and fat-like substances which are very useful constituents of the cells in our body. They are also an important source of energy. Cholesterol and triglycerides are the two important lipids. Cholesterol and triglycerides are transported are circulated into the blood through lipoprotein particles. Each lipoprotein particle is a combination of cholesterol, phospholipids, triglycerides, and protein molecules.

Types of Lipoproteins

They are classified based on their density into three types. They are:

  • HDL (High-density lipoproteins)
  • LDL (Low-density lipoproteins)
  • VLDL (Very low-density lipoproteins)
  • Total cholesterol
  • Triglycerides

High-density lipoproteins (HDL) are good cholesterol and low-density lipoproteins (LDL) is bad cholesterol. High-density cholesterol carries cholesterol to the liver from various parts of your body. Liver functions by eliminating the cholesterol out of the body. HDL helps in moving the cholesterol away from your arteries. The increased amount of HDL helps in reducing the risk of coronary heart disease. LDL gets attached to the walls of the arteries and clogs them.

This leads to a condition called atherosclerosis. Total cholesterol is the sum of both HDL and LDL. With the help of total cholesterol and HDL the values, the total cholesterol-to-HDL ratio can be derived with which coronary heart disease and stroke can be diagnosed.

Why a lipid profile test is advised?

The lipid profile test is done to know whether an individual is having normal or abnormal cholesterol levels in the body. The doctor may ask to perform this test if an individual is suffering from conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, and has heart disease or with a family history of heart disease, has a heart attack. This test is also done to determine the risk of developing heart disease.

If an individual is on the treatment of anti-cholesterol medications like statins, then the doctor may ask to perform this test to evaluate and to check the effectiveness of the treatment and cholesterol levels in the body.

This helps the doctor to rule out the patient disease condition. When a patient is diagnosed with atherosclerosis or hypercholesterolemia visits hospital for a general check-up, the doctor may ask to undergo the lipid profile test, which gives a better status of the condition. Mostly, this test is done along with other tests like an electrocardiogram (ECG), echocardiogram, cardiac catheterization.

How frequent lipid profile test has to do?

In adults with no risk factors, it is recommended every 4-6 years. For individuals above 20 years of age, this test is recommended every 4-6 years. The frequency of this test depends on various factors like age, history of heart disease, high blood pressure, physically inactive, etc. If you are a diabetic or have heart disease or stroke or high blood pressure, then this test is recommended every year. Lipid profile test is also recommended at regular intervals to evaluate the lifestyle changes like diet and exercise and to check the effectiveness of the treatment.

Lipid profile test includes
  1. HDL (High-density lipoproteins)
  2. LDL (Low-density lipoproteins)
  3. VLDL (Very low-density lipoproteins)
  4. Total cholesterol
  5. Triglycerides
  6. HDL LDL Ratio
  7. TC HDL Ratio

Lipid Profile Test

Note:

  • Overnight fasting is not required
  • Doctor’s prescription may be needed
  • The normal test result may vary depending on gender, age, health history, etc.
  • Smoking and medicines like statins (simvastatin, rosuvastatin) may change the levels of lipids in the blood. Hence, inform your doctor or technician about all your current medications and medical conditions prior to the test.
