Small intestine: Lipids are digested in the small intestine and absorbed with the assistance of bile which acts as an emulsifier, pancreas secretes lipase to breakdown some lipids and the small intestinal lining have enzymes at the "brush border" and certain shorter length fats can be absorbed directly in the intestines. Fats are then repackaged in the liver after digestion. ...Read more

Lipid panel: Blame it on genetics. Unfortunately many lipid panel abnormalities are difficult to pin down as to root cause.

Cholesterol, TG Test: The standard lipid panel measures levels of blood cholesterol and triglycerides (tg). These lipids are carried in the circulation by various lipoprotein particles such as tg rich vldl and cholesterol rich LDL and hdl. Tg is used to estimate vldl concentration, while the cholesterol carried in LDL and HDL (ldl-c and hdl-c) is used to estimate LDL and HDL particle concentrations. ...Read more
Lipids include triglycerides and cholesterol. Triglycerides are tiny droplets of fat in the bloodstream. They are formed from fat absorbed from intestines. It is how your body moves fat from your intestines to other parts of body for storage.
Cholesterol is vital to life, and is used to make cell membranes (the casing of cells) and hormones like testosterone and others.

The cell membrane:
Is made of lipids. The membrane is like a plastic bag that holds the cell contents inside. Without lipids, there would be no flexible cells, and as a result no humans or any other animals for that matter.
Hope this helps.

MRI of LDL/check-up.: This profile is a special test that uses nuclear magnetic resonance or NMR to observe the amount and type (s) of your LDL particles in your body, along with vldl and hdl. With this, your doctor can make more accurate treatment decisions. Since about 50% of heart attacks occur in those with good readings, and the risk goes up with issues like diabetes, and high blood pressure, it is wise to do it. ...Read more
Predicts events.: Lipid profile tells you about risk for future heart / blood vessel disease. Smoking, hypertension, diabetes and lipids are modifiable risk factors. Non modifiable risk factors are male sex, getting older and having family history of early heart disease. At your age there is virtually no contribution of lipids to mortality within the next 20 years unless numbers very high or many risk factors. ...Read more
Routine blood test: It is better to have a high HDL and a low LDL. HDL is the good and LDL is the bad cholesterol. Doctors want a patient's total cholesterol divided by HDL to be less than 3.0. Avoiding animal fats should lower one's LDL. One's triglycerides (TG) should not be high either. Avoiding sugar and avoiding simple carbohydrates should lower one's TG. ...Read more
