A lipid profile is a panel of tests that measures lipids in the blood, such as triglycerides and the various lipoproteins that carry cholesterol (HDL, LDL, etc.). Lipid profiles are often used to assess the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Hypercholesterolemia is a term used when certain lipid levels are too high in a patient. Statins are drugs used to control this condition and are usually the first-line of therapy in these cases.
