The lipid profile is a basic assessment of the amount of “good” and “bad” cholesterol and the level of triglycerides in your blood. This test is often requested as a general health assessment and should be investigated further with advanced lipid testing such as LDL subfractions if results are abnormal or if you have a family history of heart disease. Cholesterol is an important fat that your body needs to function properly. However, too much cholesterol can lead to serious health concerns such as heart disease, stroke, or atherosclerosis.

The NutriPATH basic lipid profile is a sufficient assessment as a general health check-up. However, if you have a history or have high blood pressure, excess body weight, diabetes, or heart abnormalities, it is highly recommended to investigate advanced lipid testing such as our ‘Cardiovascular Profile’ test code 4027.
