The lipid profile is a group of tests that are often ordered together to determine risk of coronary heart disease. They are tests that have been shown to be good indicators of whether someone is likely to have a heart attack or stroke caused by blockage of blood vessels or hardening of the arteries (atherosclerois). The lipid profile typically includes:

Total cholesterol
High density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) often called good cholesterol
Low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) often called bad cholesterol
Triglycerides
An extended profile may also include:

Very low density lipoprotein cholesterol (VLDL-C)
Non-HDL-C
