Description

A Lipid Panel with LDL/HDL Ratio is a blood test used to assess an individual’s risk for heart disease and other medical conditions. It measures levels of total cholesterol, low density lipoproteins (LDL) and high density lipoproteins (HDL) in your blood. LDL, also known as “bad” cholesterol, tends to build up in your arteries and can cause blockages that lead to heart attack or stroke. HDL, or “good” cholesterol, helps to keep your arteries clear. A high LDL to HDL ratio is a sign of an increased risk for heart disease. The results from this test are combined with other tests and factors, such as age and family health history, to provide an overall assessment of your health.
