Biochemistry

The analysis of LDL cholesterol is a laboratory test that you can perform within the blood analysis laboratory in Belgrade, IntroLab. This test measures the level of LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol in the blood. LDL cholesterol is often called “bad” cholesterol because high concentrations of LDL can increase the risk of heart disease and other cardiovascular problems. This analysis provides important information about your lipid profile and allows for the assessment of the risk of developing heart disease. Additionally, the cost of the LDL cholesterol analysis in our laboratory is very affordable.

LDL cholesterol analysis – Indications

There are certain indications that may suggest the need for LDL cholesterol analysis. For example, this blood lipid status test is often recommended for people at increased risk of heart disease, such as those with diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, or a family history of heart disease. Also, if you have symptoms such as chest pain or shortness of breath, your doctor may recommend an LDL cholesterol analysis to assess your cardiovascular status.

Interpretation of results

The results of the LDL cholesterol biochemical blood analysis are expressed in milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) or millimoles per liter (mmol/L) of blood. Normal value ranges can vary depending on the laboratory. However, generally, lower values of LDL cholesterol are desirable, while higher values may indicate an increased risk of heart disease. Of course, it is important to consult with your doctor to get a detailed interpretation of the results in the context of your health condition.

What does the sampling look like?

The process of blood sampling for LDL cholesterol analysis is quick and painless. A nurse will use a sterile needle to draw blood from a vein, usually from the arm area. Then, the puncture site will be carefully covered with a bandage to prevent possible bleeding. Afterward, the sample will be analyzed.
