A complete cholesterol test is also known as a lipid panel or lipid profile. Your doctor can use it to figure out how much "good" and "bad" cholesterol, as well as triglycerides (a type of fat), are in your blood. High cholesterol is a dangerous condition that can lead to heart disease and stroke, and persons who have the risk factors listed below are the most vulnerable. Smoking, obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, excessive alcohol use, and a family history of high cholesterol or heart disease are all significant risk factors.
If you're a man, you should start getting your cholesterol levels checked around the age of 35 or earlier.
