How can a Cholesterol test help you?

Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that is present in your cells, and involved in the production of hormones, Vitamin D, and bile (aiding digestion).

However, high Cholesterol levels can create a build up in the walls of blood vessels, causing them to narrow and increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. High Cholesterol doesn't show any symptoms, so to understand your risk levels it's recommended to take a blood test.

There are several lifestyle factors that can affect cholesterol levels, including:

  • Eating foods high in saturated and trans fats
  • Lack of physical exercise
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Smoking and drinking too much alcohol
  • Having a genetic predisposition to high cholesterol

Alongside your Cholesterol test results, you'll be provided GP-approved advice in your health app, to maintain or improve your Cholesterol levels.

  • Total Cholesterol

    Your total cholesterol level reflects your risk for heart disease. In general, the higher the level, the higher your risk.

  • LDL Cholesterol

    LDL ‘bad’ cholesterol is a molecule that transports fats to various tissues throughout the body and can cause fatty deposits to accumulate inside artery walls, potentially leading to atherosclerosis and heart disease.

  • HDL Cholesterol

    HDL cholesterol (high-density lipoprotein) is a molecule that removes cholesterol from the bloodstream and takes it to the liver to be broken down and removed from the body.

  • Triglycerides

    After you eat, your body converts excess calories into triglycerides which are then transported to cells to be stored as fat. Your body then releases triglycerides when required for energy.

  • Cholesterol : HDL Ratio

    The cholesterol/HDL ratio is calculated by dividing your total cholesterol value by your HDL cholesterol level. It is used as a measure of cardiovascular risk because it indicates the proportion of your total ‘Good’ cholesterol.
