More precise LDL cholesterol test.
Low Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C) values are typically used to assess a person’s risk for heart disease or to follow response to therapy to lower cholesterol. This is a direct measure of LDL-C instead of a calculation that is in the standard Lipid Panel.
Preparation: You should fast 12 hours prior to your blood draw.
Expect results in 1-2 business days.
