  • Cholesterol

    Cholesterol is a waxy lipid produced in the liver and found in every cell of the body. There are two main types of cholesterol, one is in the form of HDL (high-density cholesterol) and LDL (low-density cholesterol).

  • HDL (High-Density Lipoprotein)

    HDL is known as “good cholesterol”. HDL transports excess bad cholesterol to your liver to be expelled from the body.

  • LDL (Low-Density Lipoprotein)

    LDL is known as “bad cholesterol”. LDL transports cholesterol to various parts of your body. It may build up in the arteries causing them to become hard and narrow.

  • HDL % of Total Cholesterol

    The HDL % of total cholesterol refers to the amount of "good cholesterol" in the body which can combat low-density lipoproteins or "bad cholesterol". The higher you HDL % of total cholesterol, the better.

  • % of Hemoglobin A1c

    The % of Hemoglobin A1c refers to the amount of glycated hemoglobin in the blood. Glycated hemoglobin is red blood cells that have glucose attached to them. An A1c between 5.7-6.4% signals prediabetes. Type 2 diabetes is diagnosed when A1c is over 6.5%

  • Total Triglycerides

    Triglycerides are the most common form of fats in the body, Excess calories, alcohol, and sugars in the body are converted to triglycerides and stored in the body as fat.
