A 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?

A 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, serves as a precursor to vital hormones, and helps in the production of bile acids that help digest fats. Cholesterol is transported through the blood by two kinds of proteins: low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL). An optimal amount of these proteins is necessary for proper body functioning.
