Four signs you need a lipid profile test
Indians are more likely to develop heart diseases and diabetes than Caucasians. Over 30% of the deaths in urban India are due to cardiovascular diseases – much of this can be delayed or avoided through regular testing and lifestyle changes.
If you fall in the four listed categories below, you need to get lipid profile tested every year.
- Obesity: New research shows that obesity is not necessarily related to health disorders. For example, fat people in the mediterranean can lead very long and healthy lives. However, Indian food habits lead to “unhealthy” obesity. In India, obesity is linked to multiple diseases including cardiovascular ones.
- High blood pressure: This means that your heart is having to work harder and harder. Over a period of time, it may lead to thickening in the heart and hence lower heart function.
- Family history of heart disease: I know a family in which the father and four sons all died of heart attack between the age of 55 and 60. This is one example and may not be extrapolated. However, medical research has shown that certain genes increase the probability of heart attacks and genes are generally common in a family.
- Smoking: Very difficult to understand why people will want to smoke when it is proven beyond doubt that it cause heart diseases, lower fertility, skin damage, hair loss and many other ailments.
As part of the preventive health management, one should get lipid profile test done every year after the age of 35 for men and 40 for women. For people, who have the above four characteristics, the testing should start earlier. It is a routine blood test which is an indicator of multiple genetic or lifestyle disorders including heart function related issues. It measures the level of good and bad cholesterol in the body and the level of certain types of fats.
