Blood Lipid Profile Management Programme
Blood lipid profile, including: cholesterols and triglyceride, is an important indicator of cardiovascular health. Cholesterol can be synthesized by the liver or obtained from animal food. About 2/3 of cholesterol is synthesized by the liver and intestinal wall, while the other 1/3 is obtained from food. High blood lipid or cholesterol is the cause of blood plaque, atherosclerosis, fatty liver, cardiovascular diseases or cerebrovascular diseases.

Analysis

Total cholesterol

>6.2

<5.2

Cholesterol can be synthesized by the liver or obtained from animal food. High blood cholesterol will increase risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.

High density cholesterol
(HDL)

<1.0

>1.6

HDL is protective to blood vessels. It can remove excessive bad cholesterol from vessel wall and transport it back to liver for elimination.

Low density cholesterol
(LDL)

>4.1

<2.6

LDL, which is responsible for carrying cholesterols to different parts of the body, if in excessive, will cause vessel obstruction and atherosclerosis. It is called the bad cholesterol.

Triglyceride

>2.3

<1.7

Hyperlipidemia is the cause of lethal diseases like atherosclerosis, cardiovascular diseases, cerebrovascular diseases and fatty liver etc.
