Cholesterol & Lipids Test

The Cholesterol & Lipids Test test contains 1 test with 6 biomarkers.

Cholesterol & Lipids Test includes Cardio IQ Reports and the following biomarkers.

  • Cholesterol, Total
  • HDL Cholesterol
  • LDL-Cholesterol
  • Chol/HDLC Ratio
  • Non-HDL Cholesterol
  • Triglycerides

Measure your cholesterol and lipid levels to help improve your heart health.

This cholesterol and lipids test is comparable to a standard lipid panel but includes Cardio IQ reports. Total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, and triglycerides are among the biomarkers measured. This cholesterol test is intended for anyone who is monitoring their cholesterol levels or is curious about their current levels. It's a simple cholesterol screening that provides precise results for three key cholesterol measurements and triglycerides. 

Your cholesterol blood test results will indicate your total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, and triglyceride levels. Knowing your numbers and taking steps to improve your cholesterol and lipid levels are excellent ways to lower your risk of cardiovascular disease.

Chol/HDLC Ratio

Cholesterol, Total

Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that occurs naturally in all parts of the body. Your body needs some cholesterol to work properly. But if you have too much in your blood, it can combine with other substances in the blood and stick to the walls of your arteries. This is called plaque. Plaque can narrow your arteries or even block them. High levels of cholesterol in the blood can increase your risk of heart disease. Your cholesterol levels tend to rise as you get older. There are usually no signs or symptoms that you have high blood cholesterol, but it can be detected with a blood test. You are likely to have high cholesterol if members of your family have it, if you are overweight or if you eat a lot of fatty foods. You can lower your cholesterol by exercising more and eating more fruits and vegetables. You also may need to take medicine to lower your cholesterol.

HDL Cholesterol


Non HDL Cholesterol


Triglycerides are a form of fat and a major source of energy for the body. This test measures the amount of triglycerides in the blood. Most triglycerides are found in fat (adipose) tissue, but some triglycerides circulate in the blood to provide fuel for muscles to work. After a person eats, an increased level of triglycerides is found in the blood as the body converts the energy not needed right away into fat. Triglycerides move via the blood from the gut to adipose tissue for storage. In between meals, triglycerides are released from fat tissue to be used as an energy source for the body. Most triglycerides are carried in the blood by lipoproteins called very low density lipoproteins (VLDL). High levels of triglycerides in the blood are associated with an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD), although the reason for this is not well understood. Certain factors can contribute to high triglyceride levels and to risk of CVD, including lack of exercise, being overweight, smoking cigarettes, consuming excess alcohol, and medical conditions such as diabetes and kidney disease.
