Complete Lipid Panel Testing with a Single Drop of Blood:

  • Total Cholesterol - LDL, HDL and Triglycerides are factored in to achieve your total cholesterol result
  • HDL - HDL (high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol carries cholesterol, triglycerides, and other fats from other parts of your body to your liver. Studies have shown that the higher your HDL cholesterol, the lower your risk of coronary heart disease.
  • Triglycerides - Type of fat used to store excess energy from your diet
  • LDL - LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol carries cholesterol, triglycerides and other fasts (lipids) to various parts of the body

Potential Health Benefits of Lipid Testing and Hemoglobin A1C Testing

Routine lipid and hemoglobin A1c blood testing can help identify health risk factors which standard blood-cholesterol tests may not. A full panel cholesterol and hemoglobin A1c test will recognize abnormal levels of cholesterol and/or blood glucose. Higher levels of such can lead to various health conditions and if left untreated, can even lead to heart disease. If caught early on, your doctor can work with you to devise a plan to lower your levels. Simple lifestyle changes like an increased amount of exercise or improving your diet can lower your numbers considerably.

If you or a loved is concerned about high cholesterol or if you have a family history of heart disease, schedule your blood testing appointment today and become one step closer to improving your well-being.
