Cholesterol Screening

Cholesterol Screening

Cholesterol is necessary for various functions of the body such as maintaining healthy cell walls, making hormones, vitamin D and bile acids. However, high levels of cholesterol in the blood can lead to atherosclerosis, where cholesterol builds up in the artery walls causing hardening, narrowing and blockage. This prevents oxygenated blood from reaching the heart and can result in heart disease. High cholesterol levels can exist in the absence of signs and symptoms, so a simple blood test for screening cholesterol called a complete cholesterol test, lipid panel or lipid profile is performed to identify the risk of heart disease.
