What does a Cholesterol Test and Diagnosis entail?

A blood test to check cholesterol levels — called a lipid panel or lipid profile — typically reports:

  • Total cholesterol


  • LDL cholesterol


  • HDL cholesterol


  • Triglycerides — a type of fat in the blood

For the most accurate measurements, don’t eat or drink anything (other than water) for nine to 12 hours before the blood sample is taken.
