If you’re taking cholesterol medicine, your doctor may request a Cholesterol Medication Maintenance Panel before a refill is prescribed. It’s also perfect for people who need to have their cholesterol and liver functions tested on a routine basis or for those simply interested in knowing their cholesterol level.
This panel checks to see if your current total cholesterol, LDL (bad cholesterol), HDL (good cholesterol), and triglyceride (blood fats) levels have changed. While not a common side effect, changes in liver enzymes can be directly associated with your current prescription; therefore, this panel will also check the liver enzymes that can be affected.
