Cholesterol is necessary to make the cells in our body. We get cholesterol from two sources - our liver makes cholesterol and we can also get it from eating foods from animals. We measure cholesterol directly rather than a calculation.
Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL) is generally considered the "bad cholesterol" as it can deposit in arteries and lead to a condition known as atherosclerosis. LDL can be calculated mathematically using triglycerides and total cholesterol values or measured directly – this test measures calculated LDL.
HDL, high-density lipoprotein, is considered the "good cholesterol" because it is able to carry cholesterol deposits away from arteries and back to the liver where it can be broken down and cleared from the body.
Triglycerides are the primary form of fat in the blood. Fats can deposit in organs like the liver and pancreas and interfere with healthy functioning.
