Cholesterol test Finger prick 15
Having high cholesterol doesn't show symptoms. You can only know through a blood test. High cholesterol can block arteries, causing heart disease, heart attack, or stroke.
A 5-minute finger prick test can measure your HDL & cholesterol levels and assess your heart disease risk based on your HDL to total cholesterol ratio.
High cholesterol levels can cause your arteries to become blocked - leading to coronary heart disease, heart attack or stroke. Finding out about high levels of cholesterol can help you to make the positive lifestyle and dietary changes needed to improve your chances of a long and healthy life.
Total Cholesterol is a measurement of the total amount of cholesterol in the blood. This includes low-density and high-density lipoprotein cholesterols. Cholesterol is used to produce hormones for development, growth and reproduction.
High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) is a form of cholesterol which is considered ‘good’ cholesterol because it helps remove cholesterol from the heart’s arteries.
Total Cholesterol: HDL Ratio is a mathematical calculation which indicates the ratio of total cholesterol versus ‘good’ (HDL) cholesterol in the blood.
