Blood Lipids and Fatty Acids

Blood lipids are fats in the blood, which are generally either fatty acids or cholesterol. Some levels of blood lipids are normal, but if your levels are too high, you could be at an increased risk for developing high blood pressure or heart disease.

The Importance of Fatty Acids

Fatty acids are important to our diet because they help with normal brain function, healthy metabolism, and many other processes in the body. However, when you have too much fat in your diet, it becomes stored on your body, and as a result, can travel through the bloodstream, where it becomes a blood lipid.

On-Site Testing

Anyone interested in learning more about their health can visit us to get a blood lipid test. It will tell you more about the level of fat in your blood, which can help you gauge your overall health.
