Comprehensive Cholesterol Panel
SmarTest Labs processes a cholesterol panel to measure blood levels of fats called cholesterol and triglycerides. Excess cholesterol and triglycerides can cause hardening of the arteries, which can cause heart attacks. Tests that reveal high levels of blood fats often indicate that changes in diet and exercise habits may be advisable.
A complete cholesterol test is done to determine whether your cholesterol is high and estimate your risk of developing heart attacks and other forms of heart disease and diseases of the blood vessels. A complete cholesterol test includes the calculation of four types of fats (lipids) in your blood called Total Cholesterol.
