Measurement of the amount of cholesterol, a eukaryotic sterol that in higher animals is the precursor of bile acids and steroid hormones and a key constituent of cell membranes, carried in intermediate-density lipoprotein (IDL) molecules in a specified volume of blood, the fluid that circulates through the heart, arteries, capillaries and veins carrying nutrients and oxygen to the body tissues and metabolites away from them. IDL are relatively large lipoprotein particles (complex molecules that consist of a protein membrane surrounding a core of lipids) formed by degredation of very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) particles and thus having a size intermediate between those of VLDL and low density lipoproteins. The IDL class of lipoproteins is defined as having a density between 1.006 and 1.019 g/ml.
blood low density lipoprotein cholesterol level +   
blood very low density lipoprotein cholesterol level +
