How can a cholesterol blood test help you?

This test gives you a detailed look at the fats in your blood - your cholesterol (including LDL and HDL) and triglyceride levels. There are no symptoms of high cholesterol, so you can only get insight into your cholesterol levels with a blood test.

When high cholesterol goes unchecked, it can affect your heart health. We recommend measuring your cholesterol every 3 months if you have high cholesterol.

Combined with a GP report and advice, we help you understand how to improve or maintain your cholesterol levels.
