This test indicates your level of risk for cardiovascular (heart) disease by determining the levels of lipids or fats in your blood. The test includes total Triglycerides, Cholesterol, good fats like HDL (High-density lipoprotein), bad fats like LDL (Low-density lipoprotein) and the % of total HDL in your blood to provide an accurate reflection of your heart health.
Cholesterol levels can often go unnoticed until you are faced with a more serious condition. Early detection and monitoring can provide for better clinical outcomes, by allowing you to take action with lifestyle choices such as diet, regular exercise or prescribed medication.
Anyone can take this test to understand and monitor their cardiovascular health.
Those with a strong family history of heart disease may take particular comfort in spotting early signs before it becomes a bigger issue. You should take this test if your mother, father, brother or sister has ever had a heart attack, undergone bypass surgery, suffered cardiac stents or a stroke in the past.
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) to include coronary heart disease and stroke is the number one cause of death globally. CVD causes more deaths than breast cancer, prostate cancer and bowel cancer combined.
80% of premature coronary heart disease and stroke is preventable. Getting a regular cholesterol or heart check will allow you to identify the risks early and take the necessary steps to ensure a long healthy life.
Lifestyle choices which lead to inactivity, obesity, tobacco or alcohol consumption, poor diets to include saturated fats, salt and sugar all contribute to a rise in cardiovascular disease, coronary heart disease and stroke.
