LDL Cholesterol Test

Overview

A low-density lipoprotein (LDL) test is a blood test that detects the presence of bad cholesterol (LDL) in your blood. LDL proteins carry cholesterol from your liver to the rest of your body. If your LDL levels are higher than your HDL levels, which carry cholesterol back to your liver, it can increase your risk for heart disease and stroke. LDL blood tests help your doctor design preventive and treatment plans.
