Lipidogram: Cholesterol, LDL, HDL, Triglycerides

Cholesterol is an essential component of cell membranes. Some hormones and bile acids are formed on its basis. It is mainly produced in the liver. The excess of cholesterol may accumulate on the walls of vessels, causing atherosclerosis. Determination of cholesterol level allows for assessment of fat metabolism. It is a basic test in the prevention of atherosclerosis.
LDL - low-density lipoproteins. LDL are considered unfavourable, because they deposit excess cholesterol in the walls of blood vessels, thus contributing to atherosclerosis and ischemic heart disease. The study assesses the risk of atherosclerosis and its consequences, such as stroke and myocardial infarction.
HDL - high density lipoproteins. HDL are considered beneficial because they collect excess cholesterol and increase its degradation and elimination from the body. HDL has an anti-atherosclerotic effect, which is why it is called "good" cholesterol. Increased values occur e.g.: in lipid disorders, with high and irregular physical activity, after lipid-lowering drugs. Decrease of concentration is characteristic in nephrotic syndrome, in people with hypertriglyceridemia, in smokers.
Triglycerides - serve as energy carriers and stores. The examination evaluates fat metabolism and the risk of atherosclerosis. Abnormal values may indicate metabolic disorders, atherosclerosis, alcohol abuse, diabetes, kidney and liver diseases, hypothyroidism. An increased concentration of triglycerides in the blood is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

Glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c)

Glycated haemoglobin is formed when glucose attaches to haemoglobin. The HbA1c level indicates the level of glucose for 120 days preceding the test. A test used in the diagnosis of diabetes, monitoring and treatment of diabetes.
