A very high level of lipids in the blood can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Since many times patients with elevated lipids or CVD do not have symptoms, it is important to have a blood lipid check, to assess the risk of suffering from cardiovascular disease or to monitor any drug treatment to lower these levels of fats in the blood . These results serve to take preventive courses of action or adequate treatment.
