The lipid profile is a group of tests that are often ordered together to determine risk of coronary Heart disease. They are tests that have been shown to be good indicators of whether someone is likely to have a heart attack or stroke caused by blockage of blood vessels or hardening of the arteries (atherosclerois). The lipid profile typically includes:
Optimal: Less than 100 mg/dL (2.59 mmol/L)
Near/above optimal: 100-129 mg/dL (2.59-3.34 mmol/L)
Borderline high: 130-159 mg/dL (3.37-4.12 mmol/L)
High: 160-189 mg/dL (4.15-4.90 mmol/L)
Very high: Greater than 190 mg/dL (4.90 mmol/L)
Desirable: Less than 200 mg/dL (5.18 mmol/L)
Borderline high: 200-239 mg/dL (5.18 to 6.18 mmol/L)
High: 240 mg/dL (6.22 mmol/L) or higher
Low level, increased risk: Less than 40 mg/dL (1.0 mmol/L) for men and less than 50 mg/dL (1.3 mmol/L) for women
Average level, average risk: 40-50 mg/dL (1.0-1.3 mmol/L) for men and between 50-59 mg/dl (1.3-1.5 mmol/L) for women
High level, less than average risk: 60 mg/dL (1.55 mmol/L) or higher for both men and women
Desirable: Less than 150 mg/dL (1.70 mmol/L)
Borderline high: 150-199 mg/dL(1.7-2.2 mmol/L)
High: 200-499 mg/dL (2.3-5.6 mmol/L)
Very high: Greater than 500 mg/dL (5.6 mmol/L)
There is increasing interest in measuring triglycerides in people who have not fasted. The reason is that a non-fasting sample may be more representative of the "usual" circulating level of triglyceride since most of the day blood lipid levels reflect post-meal (post-prandial) levels rather than fasting levels. However, it is not yet certain how to interpret non-fasting levels for evaluating risk, so at present there is no change in the current recommendations for fasting prior to tests for lipid levels.
Fasting blood sugar levels
If it is 102 mg/dL and you are fasting, you may have diabetes. If you are not fasting, you may not have diabetes. It's best to discuss this with your physician.
Yes I mean no, chol e sia
Fasting Blood SugarFetal Bovine Serum is a culture medium
The RHP on blood work is normally requested when the patient is undergoing dialysis. The RHP is theRecirculatory Hemoperfusion number
chol/e = bile or gallbilebile.
A lipid panel is a fasting blood test in which the lab measures blood fat, cholesterol, and the levels of good and bad cholesterol.
IF YOU MEAN PROSTATE TESTING, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO FAST, WELL AT LEAST THE MEN THAT CAME TO OUR CLINIC FOR FREE SCREENING A FEW YEARS AGO ONLY HAD TO HAVE THEIR BLOOD DRAWN AND NO FASTING WAS REQUIRED.
You are requested to consult the gynaecologist. She will go for some cheque ups. She will let you know.
4.2 is the ratio of chol. it equals your total cholesterol divided by the HDL chol. if ur a man that's approx an average risk... and i think 4.2 is average risk range for females as well.
I would say no, since the medicine, depending on what it is for, might change your blood readings and it might not be the readings that you want. I mean, you can, but just keep that in mind.
