Il colesterolo è la principale frazione lipidica delle lipoproteine, ovvero un grasso presente in tutte le cellule dell’organismo, e riveste un valore significativo nelle patogenesi cardiovascolari. In caso di valori elevati, il valore ottimale è inferiore ai 200 mg/dl. Il colesterolo HDL, comunemente chiamato “colesterolo buono”, agisce eliminando il colesterolo in eccesso che si forma sulle arterie e protegge , quindi, da aterosclerosi e infarto cardiaco. Per tale motivi, livelli oltre i 40mg/dl riducono il rischio cardiovascolare, mentre livelli bassi lo aumentano. Il colesterolo LDL è una lipoproteina che innesca il processo di aterosclerosi, accumulandosi sulle pareti delle arterie ed ostacolando il passaggio del sangue formando delle placche. Più il valore dell’LDL è alto, maggiore è il rischio di aterosclerosi. Il valore ottimale è inferiore a 100 mg/dl.

Too much calorie intake and a sedentary lifestyle can increase the deposition and storage of cholesterol in the body in the form of 'plaques' within the blood vessels (atherosclerosis). It is very harmful as it narrows the spaces within blood vessels for the blood to flow; therefore, blood supply is inadequate to the tissues leading to common signs of fatigue, breathlessness, and increased heart rate to compensate. A raised bad cholesterol can predispose a person to chronic heart and blood vessel diseases.

The lipid profile test is a selection of tests that assess the patient for diseases like coronary heart disease or as a preventive measure to check any risks depending on factors like eating habits, diet, stress, exercise and lifestyle related. This test may be ordered when a patient reports signs and symptoms of dyslipidemia.

This panel of tests is conducted on blood sample after fasting and assess four different parameters; Total cholesterol (Altogether the level of cholesterol in blood), LDLs (bad cholesterol), HDLs (Good cholesterol), and Triglycerides.
