To determine the quantity and type of fat in the blood, a lipid profile test, sometimes referred to as a total cholesterol test, is performed. It assesses the body’s levels of triglycerides, HDL (high density lipoprotein), and LDL (low density lipoprotein).
People who are overweight, have diabetes, lead a sedentary lifestyle, or have a family history of high cholesterol or heart attacks should regularly get their lipid profiles tested.
