    What is a Lipid Profile Test?

    A lipid profile test is a blood test that measures the lipid levels in your bloodstream. It gives important information about the health of your heart and blood vessels by looking at the cholesterol and triglyceride levels in your blood to see if they are within the normal range. Increased lipid levels in your blood can clog your blood vessels and arteries, leading to an increased risk of heart disease. Lipid profile blood test is commonly included in routine check-ups. Getting this test done reduces the risk of heart-related issues by detecting them early, thus allowing you to manage them well.

    Stress can have a major impact on heart health. It increases the risk of high blood pressure, which in turn, increases the risk of heart attack and stroke. In bustling and fast-paced cities like Bangalore, where demanding lifestyles are common and stress levels are rising, getting a lipid profile done is important to keep your heart healthy and strong. Book a lipid profile test in Bangalore at the convenience of your home in 60 min.

    Lipid Profile Test Parameters

    A lipid profile test or commonly known as cholesterol test measures 5 main parameters that give you a comprehensive picture of your heart health:


    Triglycerides are the most prevalent form of lipids that circulate in your blood. They originate from foods rich in fats like butter and oils, as well as from excess calories stored in your body.

    Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol

    Also known as "bad cholesterol," LDL can build up in your blood vessels, increasing the risk of heart problems.

    High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol

    Often referred to as "good cholesterol," HDL works to reduce the buildup of LDL in your blood vessels.

    Very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol

    This type of cholesterol mainly comes from the food you've recently eaten and usually shows up in small amounts in a fasting blood sample.

    Total cholesterol

    This represents your overall cholesterol level, measured based on your LDL, VLDL, and HDL values.

    Measuring these components can help your doctor calculate other parameters such as LDL:HDL ratio and cholesterol: HDL ratio. Overall, a lipid panel test allows them to understand if you’re at risk of developing heart disease or stroke. In Bangalore, you can conveniently get a lipid panel blood test at home through Orange Health Labs and get your test reports on time.

    Lipid Profile Test Preparation

    Before undergoing a lipid Panel blood test in Bangalore, it's important to consider a few key factors as below:

    • Prerequisites : You don't need any special preparations for the lipid profile test. A sample of your blood will be drawn through a vein and sent for analysis. However, if the test is being done to assess your cardiovascular risk based on your cholesterol levels, fasting before the test is preferable. You should consult your doctor for more details on this.

    • Best Time to Get Tested : The best time for this test is in the morning, especially if you have been recommended to fast before the test. You can reach out to your doctor to ascertain what time works for you.

    • Eligibility for Lipid Profile Test : The test is usually advised for adults, especially for those with risk factors like obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, or a family history of heart disease. But for those with a family history of lipid disorders, screening may start as early as age 2 years. For most healthy individuals, this blood test is typically advised every 5 years, beginning at age 45. Your doctor may give you personalised advice on whether you should get the test done and when depending on your health and any risks you might have.

    • Cautions Before Taking Lipid Profile Test : Before getting the test, make sure to tell your doctor about any medications you're taking, as some medicines can change your lipid levels.

    By preparing with these steps, you can make sure your lipid profile blood test at home or in a laboratory gives accurate results.

    Why Take a Lipid Profile Test?

    There are many reasons why your doctor might ask for a lipid profile blood test or also known as a cholesterol blood test. Here's why it's important to get this test done:

    • Early Detection of Risks

      • smoking

      • high blood pressure

      • overweight or obesity

      • lack of exercise

      • stress

      • diabetes or prediabetes

      • eating unhealthy foods

      • high total cholesterol

    • Monitoring of Existing Conditions : If you already have a heart condition or high cholesterol or triglyceride levels, getting regular lipid profile tests can help your doctor monitor how well your treatment is working. This lets them adjust your medications and/or lifestyle as needed.

    • Checking Your Overall Health: Although the main concern behind doing this test is to check for heart health, unusual lipid levels can also signal other health problems like metabolic disorders and give you a peek into your overall health.

    Lipid Profile Test Results & Interpretation

    Once you are done with your lipid profile test and receive your results, it's important to understand what they mean for your heart health. Here’s a summary of the test results to help you understand them.

    Name of the TestNormal RangeBorderline HighHighInterpretation of the results
    Total CholesterolLess than 200 mg/dL200 to 239 mg/dL295 mg/dL and aboveHigh total cholesterol levels indicate increased cardiovascular disease risk.
    LDL CholesterolLess than 100 mg/dLNear-optimal: 100 to 129 mg/dL Borderline high: 130 to 159 mg/dL160 to 189 mg/dLHigh LDL cholesterol levels are linked with stroke and heart disease.
    VLDL Cholesterol2 to 30 mg/dLN/AAbove 30 mg/dLHigh VLDL cholesterol levels are associated with increased risk of heart disease and stroke
    HDL Cholesterol95 mg/dL to 59 mg/dLN/A60 mg/dL and aboveHigh HDL cholesterol levels indicate a low risk of coronary artery disease as it can remove LDL cholesterol from your blood. Low HDL levels indicate an increased risk of heart disease.
    TriglyceridesLess than 150 mg/dL150 to 199 mg/dL200 to 499 mg/dLElevated triglyceride levels may potentially increase the risk of heart disease, particularly in women.

    The range in the test results offers a guideline for evaluating your cholesterol levels. If your results fall outside the target range, you might be considered at risk for heart problems, depending on how much they vary from the normal range. Typically, having higher levels of total cholesterol, LDL, and triglycerides, along with lower levels of HDL, can increase your risk of heart disease. Additionally, high levels of triglycerides in your blood can also be a sign of inflammation in the pancreas. Higher than normal levels of VLDL in a fasting sample could indicate a problem with the way your body handles fats and metabolic disorders. Abnormally low cholesterol levels are often linked to a health condition that causes malnutrition.

    If you receive unexpected results from your lipid profile test, it's important to consult your doctor for further guidance and interpretation. Arrange your home lipid profile blood test in Bangalore to make sure you get an accurate assessment and reports.
