If you are concerned about your cholesterol levels or just want to check on your health, this cholesterol blood test is for you.
Cholesterol plays an important role in the general function of the body, however too much can increase your risk of a stroke, heart attack or developing dementia.
Our Cholesterol Profile Blood test will check your levels of good and bad cholesterol within your blood and identify risks to your health. It is also sometimes know as a Lipid blood test, or Lipid Panel Test.
High Density Lipoprotein (HDL Cholesterol) is the ‘good’ cholesterol you need for your health, whilst Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL cholesterol) is the bad cholesterol that can build up in your blood vessels and lead to heart disease, stroke, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
High cholesterol has no symptoms, so the only way to check your health is with a blood test.
Book a cholesterol blood test today and understand your cholesterol levels to start making simple changes to your diet and lifestyle as required, and improve your health and longevity.
Do I need to fast before my test?
Our in-clinic rapid test does not require you to fast before your appointment.
However, due to the nature of the testing process at the laboratory used for home test kits and venous blood draws, it is recommended that you fast for 10-12 hours before taking a home test or venous blood sample. This means not eating or drinking anything except water for between 10-12 hours before your sample is provided.
