Understanding Cholesterol - Total in Bangalore


What is Cholesterol - Total in Bangalore?

The Cholesterol - Total test is a blood test that measures the amount of total cholesterol (fats) in the body. It is available at an affordable price in Bangalore with Tata 1mg labs. This test is done to screen for the risk of developing heart diseases, particularly in those with risk factors such as obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, or a family history of heart disease. Additionally, it also helps check the efficacy of ongoing lipid-lowering treatments.

The Cholesterol - Total test level reflects your risk for heart disease, allowing you to initiate effective treatment timely. You can maintain healthy cholesterol by making a few changes in your lifestyle, such as eating healthy, maintaining a healthy body weight, and doing regular exercise.

What does Cholesterol - Total measure?

The Cholesterol - Total test measures the total amount of cholesterol (fats) in your blood. Cholesterol is mainly synthesized in the liver and partially in the intestines. It acts as a building block for cell membranes, is a precursor to vital hormones, and helps produce bile acids that help digest fats. Cholesterol is transported through the blood as lipoproteins: low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL). An optimal amount of these proteins is necessary for proper body functioning.
