Cardiac Lipid / Cholesterol Panel   

*This test requires a fast.

Cholesterol, HDL, LDL, Triglycerides The Cardiac Lipid/Cholesterol Panel measures the lipids that are recommended by the National Cholesterol Education Program to determine your risk of having a heart attack or stroke. Total cholesterol is made up of HDL, or "good cholesterol," which decreases your risk for heart disease, and LDL, or "bad cholesterol," which increases your risk. Cholesterol-lowering drugs, known as statins, work to decrease LDL and increase HDL. Triglycerides are now considered a risk factor for heart disease. The most recent treatment guidelines recommend lowering triglyceride levels in the blood. A fasting blood sample is needed.
