About the Test
Measure your cholesterol and triglycerides levels to help assess risk for heart attack, heart disease, and other diseases of the blood vessels. A sample of your blood is collected to measure total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, and triglycerides. High cholesterol usually has no symptoms, and some people can have high levels for years without knowing. If the results show you have higher than normal levels of cholesterol, you and your healthcare provider can work together to determine next steps.
