Cholesterol Blood Test in Mumbai

What is a Cholesterol Test?

The cholesterol blood test is a diagnostic cholesterol screening test done to evaluate the levels of different types of cholesterol in your body. Cholesterol is generally produced in the body by the liver, but consumption of food rich in fat fibres can also contribute to the levels of cholesterol in our body. High cholesterol level interferes with the normal functioning of the biological processes, and therefore its monitoring is important. Chol blood test is also known as lipid profile or lipid panel.

Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that is present in all the cells of the body. Cholesterol is needed in our body to carry out functions like the production of vitamin D, hormones, and substances that aid in the digestion of food. All the cholesterol that is required by the body to carry out its functions is prepared by the body itself. Therefore, the cholesterol that we take through our diet only builds up to the levels of cholesterol present in the body. 

When the levels of cholesterol rise, the cholesterol combines with other substances present in the blood leading to the formation of plaques. The formation of plaques can lead to atherosclerosis wherein these plaques stick to the walls of the arteries. If these plaques stick on the walls of the coronary artery, it causes narrowing and blockage of the arteries that leads to coronary artery disease.

Why is a cholesterol test conducted?

A cholesterol blood test is conducted to evaluate the levels of cholesterol in your blood or to determine your risk of heart diseases. There are different types of cholesterol that are evaluated in a cholesterol test and these are:

  • LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol levels: This refers to the bad cholesterol that is mainly responsible for the blocking of arteries.
  • HDL (high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol levels: This refers to the good cholesterol that helps the body in managing the levels of bad cholesterol.
  • Total cholesterol levels: This is the total amount of good and bad cholesterol in the body.
  • Triglycerides levels: It is the type of fat that increases the patients’ risk of heart diseases.
  • VLDL (very low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol levels: These are also bad cholesterol linked to the development of plaque on the arteries.

How is the cholesterol test done?
