Lipid Panel With Total Cholesterol:HDL Ratio


The Lipid Panel measures both cholesterol (total, LDL, and HDL) and fat (triglycerides) in the blood. These four metrics are commonly used as risk factors for cardiovascular disease.

Please note this test measures the same items as the lipid panel, or lipid panel with LDL:HDL ratio, with the only difference being the Total Cholesterol to HDL ratio calculation reported with the results (instead of no ratio, or LDL:HDL ratio respectively).


This test is the same as a standard lipid panel, with the addition of the Total Cholesterol to HDL ratio calculation included in the results.

Results include:

  • Total Cholesterol
  • HDL Cholesterol
  • LDL Cholesterol (Calculated)
  • VLDL Cholesterol (Calculated)
  • Triglycerides
  • Total Cholesterol:HDL Ratio

Expected turnaround is within 1 day, although this can vary depending on other tests ordered for the same blood draw, and expected variation in test handling.
