Check the concentration of cholesterol in blood to verify abnormally high levels.
Adults with a healthy lifestyle.
WHY SHOULD I PERFORM THE TEST?
Cholesterol is produced by the liver and absorbed mostly from food. It contributes to forming cellular membranes, neurons and hormones. The normal level of cholesterol should be lower than 200 mg/dl; in case of higher levels the risk of heart attack and arteriosclerosis is increased. High cholesterol is one of the major risk factors for developing heart disease and having a heart attack. It is important to find out what your levels are because lowering high cholesterol reduces your risk of heart attack. Checking the level of cholesterol in the blood is a very good tool for verifying our own health status and eventually taking the required preventive actions.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Test uses an enzymatic method and gives a quantitative result of the level of cholesterol in blood.
