  • Who's this for?

• Full Cholesterol test - Cholesterol is a fatty substance mostly created by the liver from the fatty foods in your diet and is vital for the normal functioning of the body.

Total Cholesterol - Total cholesterol measures the overall amount of cholesterol in your blood, including both "good" (HDL) and "bad" (LDL) cholesterol

Triglycerides - Triglycerides are a fatty substance similar to bad cholesterol. High levels of triglycerides can cause heart disease.

LDL Cholesterol - LDL (low-density lipoprotein) can be considered as “bad cholesterol”. This makes you more likely to have heart problems or a stroke

HDL Cholesterol - HDL (high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol can be considered “good cholesterol”. this makes you less likely to have heart problems or a stroke

Non-HDL Cholesterol - Non-HDL cholesterol, as its name implies, subtracts your high-density lipoprotein (HDL, or "good") cholesterol number from your total cholesterol number. So it contains all the "bad" types of cholesterol.

HDL % of total/Total HDL Ratio - This is the ratio of all the "bad" types of cholesterol to total cholesterol. The higher the number, the greater the chance of heart problems

A complete cholesterol test will measure levels of all cholesterols and other fats in your blood. Although a certain level of cholesterol is essential, too much of it can build up in your blood vessels and raise your risk of heart disease

Everyone basically! We should all be doing cholesterol tests regularly
