Cholesterol check

We believe that all adults should get a cholesterol check - no matter what your age or how healthy you feel. This is because high cholesterol usually does not have any early signs or symptoms, so the only way to know your cholesterol levels is to get a check. This test is also designed to help you maintain healthy cholesterol levels by providing you with useful advice.

High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol

HDL is often known as ‘good’ cholesterol as it removes other types of cholesterol from the blood vessels and transports them back to the liver. High levels of HDL are associated with a lower risk of developing cardiovascular complications. This test determines your HDL levels and the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases.
Biomarkers Tested: Total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL), total cholesterol:HDL ratio, HDL percentage

Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol

LDL is often known as the ‘bad’ cholesterol. High levels of LDL can build up in your arteries, causing heart disease.This test will determine your LDL levels and the associated risk of developing cardiovascular complications.
Biomarkers Tested: Total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL), non-HDL cholesterol

Triglycerides

Triglycerides are a type of fat found in the blood. These are the most common type of fat in the body. Triglycerides are needed for metabolic health but in excess amounts, they may be harmful and may increase the risk of heart disease.

Biomarkers Tested: Triglycerides

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is the home cholesterol test suitable for?

Anyone can take this cholesterol test to understand and monitor their cardiovascular health. You should take this test if your parents or siblings have ever had a heart attack, undergone bypass surgery, had cardiac stents or a stroke in the past.

Why should I measure my cholesterol?

While cholesterol is essential for your health, if it gets too high it might increase your risk of heart disease — putting you at risk of things like a heart attack or stroke. It's important to measure your cholesterol regularly as there are no signs of high cholesterol that can warn you before something goes wrong, like cardiac arrest.

What makes my cholesterol levels go up?

Eating foods such as red meat, whole milk dairy products, egg yolks, and some kinds of fish can make your cholesterol levels go up. Being overweight can make your bad cholesterol go up and your good cholesterol go down. Also, after women go through menopause, their bad cholesterol levels tend to increase. However, a more accurate reading of the nature of your cholesterol will be laid out in our comprehensive report that is tailored and personalised for you.
