  • A lipid panel or profile is a set of blood tests that measures blood levels of triglycerides as well as the major forms of cholesterol (total cholesterol, high density lipoprotein cholesterol or HDL and low density lipoprotein cholesterol or LDL). 
  • The most common location for a xanthoma is around the inner or outer areas of the eyelids, where they tend to occur in clusters; this particular type of xanthoma is called a "xanthelasma." 
  • LDL levels are often elevated in people who eat a high-fat, low-fiber diet; are overweight; and do not get sufficient exercise. 
  • Depending on your cholesterol level, and depending on how it responds to lifestyle changes, you may also require cholesterol-lowering medications, such as statins, bile acid sequestrants, nicotinic acid, fibrates or drugs that inhibit cholesterol absorption. 
  • If you are found to have high cholesterol, you should follow the usual lifestyle recommendations to lower your lipid levels: Follow all treatment recommendations if you have diabetes, high cholesterol and/or high blood pressure.
