It is also needed for the production of certain types of hormones, as well as for building healthy cells, and for protecting the delicate nerves in your body.
Cholesterol numbers are the result of a blood test that's known as a complete lipoprotein test. This test separately identifies various types of cholesterol, including triglyceride levels (TG), high density lipoprotein (HDL) levels, low density lipoprotein (LDL) levels, and also, TC, which refers to one's total cholesterol count.
