What is a lipid profile?

  • A lipid profile is a combination of blood tests performed to check the cholesterol levels and the level of triglycerides in the blood.

  • These are nothing but fat content present in your bloodstream.

  • Unhealthy levels of lipids can clog your arteries and increase your risk of heart disease and stroke.

  • These are also responsible for unhealthy weight gain.

  • A lipid profile is a snapshot of how much healthy/unhealthy fats do you have to circulate in your blood.

  • High cholesterol is linked to heart diseases, obesity, diabetes, etc.

  • Those who are at a higher risk of these conditions or have been diagnosed with these issues need to undergo a lipid profile.
