To whom?

Cholesterol is a substance which is produced by the liver. A smaller proportion is absorbed from food. The body uses cholesterol primarily for forming cell membranes, producing bile and to protect the skin. Cholesterol travels though the bloodstream in small packages called lipoproteins. The most important lipoproteins are LDL (low-density lipoprotein) and HDL (high-density lipoprotein). While HDL has preventative effects on vascular diseases, LDL is accused of being responsible for the development of circulatory disorders.

Method

The LDL cholesterol test will enable you to assess quickly and easily whether or not your LDL cholesterol level is within the normal range. You will then be able to take action to drastically reduce your personal risk of heart disease if, as a result of detecting raised levels, you seek the advice of your doctor as to further steps and treatment.

How to use?
  • Begin by pricking your finger quickly and easily with the micro-lancet to obtain a tiny droplet of blood.
  • Place a drop of blood on the test strip and wait for three minutes.
  • Match the colour on the test strip with the disc and read your cholesterol level.
  • An overall cholesterol level of up to 200 mg/dl (5.2 mmol/l) is the normal level for adults.
  • If your reading is higher, please visit your doctor for a medical check-up as soon as you can.
