This is a hypothetical blood work and urinalysis for a 63 yr. old man who reported to his physician with blood in his urine. The patient is taking a statin and fish oils. The purpose of this example is to illustrate where to find a LIPID PANEL on a blood work and urinalysis sheet.

Seeking optimal healthy longevity? Then do not be one of the people who self-doses with vitamins, herbs, supplements and medications without routinely getting blood work and urinalysis to measure the effect these materials are having upon you. To do otherwise is to risk danger to your health. Always have a physician to guide you and help you. Educate yourself by using WebMD, the Mayo Clinic, the Cleveland Clinic, and ErinPharm web pages. Buy books that guide you toward everyday health, nutrition, and exercise. Join the Life Extension Foundation. Learn how to detect cancer and vascular disease in the early stages when cure is possible. Become part of the future and not part of the past. Surveillance techniques for colon, breast, prostate and other cancers are well established. Use them. Surveillance techniques for coronary, carotid, and peripheral artery disease are routine for your physician. Utilise your physician in your quest for optimal healthy longevity and not just when you feel ill. He/she has the ability to guide you toward adding decades to your life. Orient yourself toward exercise, good nutrition, and a positive attitude.
Above all, recognise in reading this that you are one of the privileged few among humankind. The day you are reading this is a day where over one billion of our fellow human beings do not have access to fresh drinking water, let alone basic hygeine, let alone rudimentary health care, and freedom from fear.

Total Cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, VLDL-cholesterol Conversion:
from mg/dL to mmol/L: multiply by (x) 0.02586
mmol/L to mg/dL: multiply by (x) 38.7
LDL-cholesterol is a calculated value, derived from the Friedwald formula, in which Total cholesterol = HDL-cholesterol + LDL-cholesterol + VLDL-cholesterol.
Thus: LDL-cholesterol = total cholesterol - HDL-cholesterol - 1/5 triglycerides.
Since VLDL-cholesterol is mainly triglycerides then a VLDL (very low density lipoprotein) value is recorded as one-fifth that of the triglyceride level measured.
