Product Description

The Total Cholesterol Test allows you to check if your total cholesterol level is healthy.

Total cholesterol is the overall measure of both good cholesterol (HDL) & bad cholesterol (LDL)

Early detection and management of raised cholesterol helps reduce the risks of hardening of the arteries, strokes and cardiac arrest.

Features

• The test provides a reliable estimate of the total cholesterol level in the blood.
• Easy to follow instructions.
• The test provides early detection of potential raised cholesterol.
• A visible result in three minutes.
• Everything you need to complete the test at home.

What are the benefits of testing for cholesterol levels?

• Having raised cholesterol levels can increase your risk of heart and coronary diseases
• Early detection of raised cholesterol levels allows you to take preventative action

How to use the test

The test is to be carried out on an empty stomach.
The test can be done first thing in the morning.
• 1: The test requires a finger prick sample of blood
• 2: Visual result is available in less than 5 minutes.
• 3: Read the full instruction manual contained in the pack before use.

How to read your results

Below 5.0mmol/l - This means the level is the target for most people
Between 5.0mmol/l - 7.5mmol/l - This means the level is high
Above 7.5mmol/l - This means the level is very high

Who can use the test?

The test is suitable for everyone, but is strongly recommended for:

• Those with diabetes, as they are at a greater risk of heart and coronary disease

• Adults aged 40 years and over

What next steps can I take if the results are high or very high?

You should speak to your pharmacist for a more thorough test and advice.
