Where can I get my Lipids checked?

What is a Lipid Panel Test?

Lipids are a type of molecule found in cells and tissues throughout the body.  Cholesterol, one of the most common types of lipid, is a substance your body uses to produce healthy new cells.  In most cases, the liver is capable of producing all the cholesterol the body needs.  However, many types of food such as milk, eggs, and meat also contain cholesterol.  Excess cholesterol leads to the buildup of fatty deposits in the blood vessels.  Blocked arteries can restrict the flow of blood to the heart and result in serious health issues including heart attack or stroke.  1 in 3 American adults has high cholesterol.  Unfortunately, high cholesterol has no symptoms.  The easiest way to monitor your cholesterol levels is with a Lipid Panel blood test.  Results from this and other heart health tests can help to determine if your health is at risk and give your doctor valuable information to help decide what type of medication or lifestyle changes are necessary.
