    What is a Lipid Profile Test?

    A Lipid Profile test evaluates the levels of lipids, a type of fat, in the blood. It provides important information about your heart and blood vessel health by assessing cholesterol and triglyceride levels to ensure they are within normal limits. High lipid levels can lead to clogging of blood vessels, increasing the risk of heart diseases like heart attack. Routine check-ups often include a Lipid Profile Blood test, which helps in early detection and effective management of heart-related issues.

    Stress can have a major impact on heart health. This may eventually lead to high blood pressure, which increases the risk of heart attack and stroke. In a fast-paced city like Mumbai, where busy lifestyles are the norm, stress levels are high. Therefore, getting a Lipid Profile test is crucial for preserving the health of your heart. Book a Lipid Profile test in Mumbai at your home in just 60 minutes.

    Lipid Profile Test Parameters

    A Lipid Profile test or Cholesterol test provides valuable insights into your risk of developing heart diseases like stroke. It evaluates five key parameters to provide a complete view of your heart health:

    Thus, the measurements of these parameters via a Lipid Panel test help your doctor determine other important parameters such as the LDL: HDL ratio and cholesterol: HDL ratio.


    The most frequently found lipids in your blood, accumulating from fatty foods and surplus calories stored in your body.

    Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol

    LDL, also referred to as "bad cholesterol", can accumulate in your blood arteries and raise your risk of heart problems.

    Very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol

    This form of cholesterol usually occurs in trace levels in a fasting blood sample and is mostly derived from past meals.

    High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol

    HDL, also referred to as "good cholesterol", works to prevent LDL from accumulating in your arteries, thereby reducing the risk of heart disease.

    Total cholesterol

    Using your LDL, VLDL, and HDL levels as a basis, this is your total cholesterol level.

    Lipid Profile Test Preparation

    Before undergoing the Lipid Panel Blood test in Mumbai, it's important to consider a few key factors as below:


    No specific preparations are needed for the Lipid Profile test. A venous blood sample will be collected by the eMedic and sent for analysis. As the purpose is to assess your cardiovascular risk through cholesterol levels, fasting beforehand is typically advised. Please consult your doctor for detailed instructions.

    Best Time to Get Tested

    The optimal time for this test is in the morning, particularly if fasting is necessary. Your doctor can provide guidance on the best time based on your specific requirements.

    Who Should Get a Lipid Profile Test

    The Lipid Profile test is usually recommended for adults, especially those with risk factors like obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, or a family history of heart disease. For those with a family history of lipid disorders, screening might start as early as age 2. Healthy individuals are generally advised to undergo this test every five years starting from 45 years of age. Your doctor can offer personalized advice based on your health and risk factors.

    Cautions Before Taking the Lipid Profile Test

    Be sure to tell your doctor about any medications you are taking, as some can impact your lipid levels. Providing this information is essential for obtaining accurate test results.

    Why Take a Lipid Profile Test?

    Your doctor might prescribe you for a Lipid Profile Blood test or a Cholesterol Blood test for several important reasons such as:

    Early Risk Detection: Routine testing can reveal if your lipid levels are normal or if you’re at risk for heart disease. Detecting these issues early allows you to take preventive measures to lower your risk. Factors that increase heart disease risk include:

    • Lack of physical activity

    • Stress

    • Smoking

    • High blood pressure

    • Being overweight or obese

    • Diabetes or prediabetes

    • Poor diet

    • High total cholesterol

    Monitoring Health Conditions: For those with existing heart conditions or high cholesterol/triglyceride levels, regular Lipid Profile tests help doctors track treatment progress and make necessary adjustments to medications or lifestyle.

    Evaluating Overall Health: While initially focused on heart health, Lipid Profile tests can also highlight other potential health issues like metabolic disorders, offering a broader view of your overall health.

    Lipid Profile Test Results & Interpretation

    After completing your Lipid Profile Blood test and receiving the results, it’s crucial to understand their implications for your heart health. Here’s a brief overview to help you interpret your results.

    Name of the TestNormal RangeBorderline HighHighInterpretation of the results
    Total CholesterolLess than 200 mg/dL200 to 239 mg/dL240 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 Cholesterol40 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 test result range provides a guideline for assessing your cholesterol levels. Results outside the target range may suggest a risk for heart problems, depending on their deviation from normal. High levels of total cholesterol, LDL, and triglycerides, coupled with low HDL levels, generally increase heart disease risk. Elevated triglycerides can also indicate pancreatic inflammation, and high VLDL levels in fasting samples might point to metabolic disorders or fat-handling issues. Low cholesterol levels are often linked to malnutrition-related health conditions. Consult your doctor for guidance and interpretation if the results of your Lipid Profile Blood test in Mumbai are not normal.
