Information

Did you know 2 out of 3 people in the UK have raised cholesterol levels?

Our cholesterol home test kit enables you to test at home so you can maintain a healthy lifestyle. This sterile rapid test determines whether your personal total cholesterol level is within normal limits:

It is simple! Requires only 1 drop of whole blood Fast & reliable - visible result within 3 minutes.

Why is this test important?

  • 2 out of 3 people in the UK have raised cholesterol levels 
  • Everyone should regularly monitor their cholesterol level 
  • A high cholesterol level is a risk factor for hardening of the arteries, stroke and cardiac arrest 
  • Early detection along with lifestyle changes will help to decrease the risks.

Why test for cholesterol levels?

Cholesterol is the least bothering but the most worrying substance. High cholesterol levels, coupled with other external and internal factors, increase the risk of heart and coronary diseases. Two out of three people in the UK have raised cholesterol levels. Early detection allows early preventive action and effective treatment.

Who is it for?

Everyone, but strongly recommended for adults aged 40+. Strongly recommended for people suffering with diabetes, as they are at higher risk of heart and coronary disease.

What is the interpretation of results?

"

Where does cholesterol come from?

  1. Internal factor: Mostly genetically inherited from family and region.
  2. External factors: Smoking and alcohol, red meat and saturated fats, sugar and salt.

When assessing the risk factor related to scholesterol, one needs to differentiate between:

  1. HDL - high density lipoprotein that carries so called "good cholesterol" from the body to the liver, where it is recycled or excreted. High levels of HDL are good, because they help the body protect itself from cardiovascular diseases.
  2. LDL - low density lipoprotein, carries the so called "bad cholesterol" around the body and deposits it in the arteries, causing hardening of the arteries.

What happens when cholesterol is high?

Fatty deposits in blood vessels can cause their hardening (Arteriosclerosis), which could lead to high blood pressure, angina, heart attack and CAD (Coronary Artery Disease). High cholesterol is not the only factor to consider: stress, smoking, little exercise, diabetes or family history of heart or coronary disease adds to the risk.

What if results show high cholesterol?

High overall cholesterol is not necessarily an indicator of ill health (consider HDL and LDL - good and bad cholesterol levels). Consult you doctor for re-testing and advice. Do not make any medical decisions without consulting your doctor. Reducing external influences and increasing exercise, intake of fresh fruit and vegetables, fush oils and water, might help reduce cholesterol levels.
