Our Full Lipid Profile test basically consists of Total cholesterol (TChol), Triglycerides, HDL-Cholesterol (HDL-C), and LDL-Cholesterol (LDL-C). In addition, various computed values such as VLDL, TChol/HDL-C, HDL-C/LDL-C ratios are given. The lipid profile can be performed as a fasting test (requiring about 10 hours after last meal) or as a routine without fasting requirement. To perform this test you will need to visit your laboratory of choice for the collection of a Blood sample.
