The LDL C test (low density lipoprotein cholesterol test) is a lipid profile test which shows the levels of cholesterol in the blood. The provider uses the test to determine the patient’s risk of developing coronary artery disease or diabetes mellitus. The provider may adjust the patient’s cholesterol or diabetes medication depending on the results of the test. This code represents the most recent LDL C test level of less than 100 mg/dL.
