LDL Cholesterol (Direct)
High LDL Cholesterol (Direct) levels typically do not exhibit specific symptoms. However, elevated LDL cholesterol is a significant risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. Over time, it can lead to conditions like atherosclerosis, potentially resulting in symptoms such as chest pain, heart attacks, or strokes. This blood test measures the level of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, often referred to as “bad” cholesterol, and is crucial for assessing and managing the risk of heart disease and associated complications.
