The Lipid Panel with HDL:LDL Ratio is often used to access the risk of coronary disease. The HDL:LDL ratio may be useful in determining heart disease risk, though total cholesterol is more useful in determining treatment. This is a cholesterol total test which includes; high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol; low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (calculation); triglycerides; very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol (calculation) and HDL:LDL ratio. Turnaround time for the Lipid Panel with HDL:LDL Ratio is typically 1 business day.
The Lipid Panel with HDL:LDL ratio requires fasting 12-14 hours prior to blood collection.Lipid-Cholesterol Overview
