Priority Lab Testing’s individual cholesterol testing and panels are designed to quickly and efficiently give you an accurate reading of your LDL (bad) cholesterol, HDL (good) cholesterol, and triglycerides to help decrease risk of heart disease, stroke and high blood pressure. Note that in order to receive the most accurate results, many of our cholesterol tests and panels require that you fast for at least 8 hours prior to testing (i.e. nothing to eat or drink except water).
