10 Key Points

  • What is the normal range of lipid profile or cholesterols?

  • A good value for total cholesterol is upto 200 mg/dl, for HDL(high density lipoprotein) it should > 40 mg/dl, LDL cholesterol upto 100 mg/dl, Triglycerides upto 150 mg/dl, Very low density lipoproteins upto 30 mg/dl.
  • The only difference between normal range for men and women in the lipid profile is in HDL cholesterol where the recommended range for women is > 50 mg/dl
  • These normal ranges are only applicable to adult men and women.
  • How to reduce cholesterol by diet?

  • The best foods to lower cholesterol are those that are low in saturated and trans fats, high in mono and polyunsaturated fats, and include bioactive foods such as fruits, nuts, seeds, vegetables, legumes, whole-grain products, and plant oils, while also limiting processed meats and increasing consumption of soy protein.
  • Can high cholesterol or lipids cause diabetes?

  • Yes, increased levels of cholesterol are known to increase the chances of developing diabetes.
  • Which type of cholesterol is most commonly elevated?

  • LDL Cholesterol also known as bad cholesterol is usually the first and most commonly abnormal cholesterol.
  • How does the lipid profile normal range change due to medicines?

  • Medicines for blood pressure like Beta-blockers can cause Triglyceride levels to go up by almost 40%
  • Diuretics like loop diuretics for blood pressure can also cause a 5-10% increase in the lipid levels.
  • Estrogens used in Hormone replacement therapy or after menopause can cause the Triglycerides to increase by as much as 40%.
  • Antiviral drugs (protease inhibitors) used against HIV can cause the triglyceride levels to nearly double. Immunosuppresants can also cause the triglyceride levels to rise by as much as 70%
  • If you are taking any of these medications, please remember to tell your doctor, so that they can correctly interpret the normal range of the lipid profile, in the context of the medicines that you are taking.
  • What is the normal range for LDL cholesterol in pregnancy?

  • During pregnancy the normal range of lipid profile is different and the values depend on the month of pregnancy.
  • During the first three months the range is between 60-153 mg/dl
  • During month 3-6, the normal range is between 77-184 mg/dl
  • During month 8-9 the normal range is between 101-224 mg/dl
  • Why lipid panel must be done in fasting state?

  • The lipid panel or lipid profile consists of 5 seperate tests. Of these tests the "total triglycerides" is the only component which gets affected by eating.
  • Secondly, most of the guidelines and normal values established for lipid profile are based on blood samples taken from patients in the fasting state.
  • Thus to get accurate values for the triglycerides part of the lipid panel, and to make sure that the rest of the values are comparable with reference values, it is better to do the test in the fasting state.
  • What is the difference between fasting and non-fasting lipid test?

  • In the fasting state, the values of triglycerides will be lower than in the non-fasting state. This is the major difference in lipid panel in the fasting vs non-fasting state. The other three components namely HDL, LDL, and total cholesterol are not much different whether the patient is fasting or not.
  • How many hours of fasting is required for lipid panel test?

  • A generally accepted value of 12 hours of fasting is recommeded before having a lipid profile test.
  • What other factors can affect my lipid panel results?

  • Total cholesterol is higher in the winter, while triglycerides are higher in the summer
  • If the blood sample is taken when you are lying down, the values of cholesterol and triglycerides may be lower by 10%
  • Some kidney diseases like nephrotic syndrome, and hypothyroidism can increase cholesterol values.

What is Lipid Profile

A lipid profile is a blood test that measures the levels of various types of fats (lipids) in the bloodstream. It typically includes measurements of total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglycerides. The test is performed by drawing a blood sample from a vein, which is then analyzed in a laboratory. The results can help to assess a persons risk for heart disease and guide treatment decisions.
