What is the Serum Cholesterol Test?

A blood cholesterol test detects the quantity of cholesterol in your blood. Total cholesterol contains LDL (bad cholesterol) and HDL (good cholesterol). This test is used to assess the risk of heart disease and the effectiveness of current lipid-lowering therapy. Total cholesterol levels indicate heart disease risk.
