Cholesterol Screening

A fasting blood test is the best way to find out your total cholesterol levels and also to look at the balance of the different types of cholesterol in your bloodstream (HDL, LDL as well as Triglycerides). Low density lipoproteins (LDL) are the most damaging cholesterol particles causing the buildup of atheroma (fat) in your coronary arteries. There is some evidence that high density lipoproteins (HDL) may protect against heart disease. There are no symptoms of high cholesterol, and if left undetected can lead to coronary heart disease. The level can be corrected in many cases by small lifestyle changes. A blood test is taken and results are available within 24 hours for discussion with the Health Advisor with future recommendations on how to control and reduce cholesterol levels.

Please note: You are required to fast for 12 hrs prior to test.
