- Allows evaluating the risk of cardiovascular diseases
- Used as a primary analysis of lipid metabolism
Analysing the lipid metabolism is an important factor in preventing heart diseases. Total cholesterol is the total amount of cholesterol in various lipoproteins (substances made of protein and lipids), consisting of lipoproteins with varying density (“bad” cholesterol or LDL-cholesterol and “good” cholesterol or HDL-cholesterol, etc.) Cholesterol is an important component of cell membranes and a necessary substance for the synthesis of steroid hormones and bile acid.
Increased cholesterol content in blood is one of the primary risk factors of cardiovascular diseases (e.g. cardiac muscle infarction and stroke).
Since the result of the test is directly affected by food intake, it is important to refrain from eating and drinking 10-14 hours before giving blood.
