Cholesterol Test - Full Lipid Panel with Glucose
SKU #: H-CHOLNC
The Cholesterol Panel is a home cholesterol test with results from a certified CLIA laboratory. This test allows an individual to receive a full laboratory report with cholesterol levels from the comfort and privacy of their home.
A Cholesterol Panel provides a full lipid profile - that is, total blood cholesterol, HDL levels and LDL levels and triglyceride levels. HDL is often called "good cholesterol" because its thought to actually remove excess cholesterol from atherosclerotic plaques. LDL is often referred to as "bad cholesterol" because it can slowly build up within the walls of the arteries.
Cholesterol and other fats can't dissolve in blood. They have to be carried into and out of the cells by special carriers of lipids and proteins called lipoproteins. The two major lipoproteins, and the ones to be most concerned about, are high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL).

For an accurate home cholesterol panel, you must fast at least 9 and preferably 12 hours before the test.
