Cholesterol is a vital chemical present in the body and performs many functions such as coating the cells of the body-forming the cell membrane, producing certain components called bile acids which aid in digestion of fats. Additionally, it performs an imperative role in production of certain vital nutrients like vitamin D and sex hormones like estrogen, progesterone and testosterone (steroid hormones). Elevated levels of cholesterol indicate a risk for heart disease, atherosclerosis and stroke and hence estimating blood cholesterol levels is one of the most fundamental and critical test in routine screening and health checkup.
