Cardiovascular disease means disease of the heart, such as a heart attack, or of the arteries, such as strokes. These conditions are partly due to laying down of excess cholesterol in the artery walls (known as atherosclerosis, or “furring up of the arteries”). The balance of different cholesterol fractions measured as part of the lipid profile (e.g. “bad” non-HDL-C vs “good” HDL-C) can influence how fast and extensive this process is. Therefore, the commonest reason to measure a person’s lipid profile is to help estimate their risk of developing cardiovascular disease in the future
