Lipid Panel Screenings
A complete cholesterol test — also called a lipid panel or lipid profile — is a group of blood tests that can measure the amount of cholesterol and triglycerides in your blood. A cholesterol test can help determine your risk of atherosclerosis, the buildup of plaques in your arteries that can lead to narrowed or blocked arteries throughout your body. If your cholesterol levels are high, you probably won't have any signs or symptoms, so a cholesterol test is an important tool. High cholesterol levels are a significant risk factor for heart disease.
Measures glucose, total cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL, LDL and calculates TC/HDL Ratio. Fasting is required beforehand.
Total Cholesterol Screenings
Fasting beforehand is not required.
Maintaining control over your blood glucose level is the best way to help prevent complications from diabetes, such as kidney and eye damage, as well as cardiovascular complications. To keep your level in check, you must monitor your blood glucose for changes that could indicate needed adjustments to diet and medication or that could be signals of other health complications.
Fasting beforehand allows for more accurate results.
