Test measures
For the Cholesterol and Lipids Test we analyze:
  • (Total) Cholesterol
  • HDL protein
  • LDL protein (calculated)
  • Triglycerides
  • Total-Cholesterol-to-HDL-Ratio
(Total) Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a fatty compound that is essential for the functioning of our bodes. Cholesterol is being transported in the blood in the form of lipo-protein compounds – so-called HDL and LDL. “Total Cholesterol” measures the full amount of cholesterol in the blood, including all different components. High cholesterol levels can indicate a higher risk of cardiovascular diseases. It shall be noted that Total Cholesterol levels should be interpreted alongside the individual components (see below).

HDL Protein

HDL (High-density lipo-protein) transports excess cholesterol from the body into the liver, from where it can be disposed. It is for this reason that HDL is also commonly referred to as the “good” cholesterol. High HDL levels indicate a lower risk of being affected by atherosclerosis.

LDL protein

LDL (Low-density lipo-protein) transports cholesterol from the liver into our body. Since this cholesterol might then be deposited and remain in our arteries, LDL is also commonly referred to as the “bad” cholesterol. High LDL levels can indicate an increased risk of atherosclerosis.

Triglycerides

Trigylcerides are the dominant form of fat in our bodies and play an important role in our metabolism and as a source of energy. Triglycerides are circulating in our blood flow in order to instantly provide energy or to be stored in the adipose tissue for future energy production. Usually, Triglyceride levels are lowest after fasting and highest after food intake.

Total-Cholesterol-to-HDL-Ratio

The Total-Cholesterol-to-HDL-Ratio indicates the risk of being affected by strokes or heart attacks. The lower the ratio, the lower is the risk.

Symptoms
You should check your cholesterol levels frequently if you:
  • have a family history of high cholesterol
  • have high blood pressure
  • are overweight
  • smoke

    Great test! Had one at another lab, which was very disappointing. This one is so much better (instructions were easy to understand…) and I will probably do it again in a couple of months to see whether anything changed.

    I’m a professional health coach and use this test for my clients. It’s easy, fast and the results help me finding the right diet for my clients, regarding their individual metabolic type. They loose more weight and get fit faster than the ones without an individual plan based on this test, so in my opinion it’s totally worth the money

    Easy sample collection. Thought it would be hard, but it’s actually pretty easy and the instructions were really helpful. Plus the results came back fast and now I’m starting on a new diet and can’t wait to see how it goes.

    Results came back fast and everything was the way I expected it to be. I’m just starting my new diet right now, so I don’t have final results yet, but it’s looking good so far. The test is not as expensive as similar tests from other labs, but still a lott of money.
