LDL Cholesterol self test

 


Worried you might have high cholesterol? Cholesterol LDL test gives you a reliable estimate of whether your overall LDL cholesterol level is within normal limits.


A high LDL cholesterol level is a risk factor for hardening of the arteries (arteriosclerosis), stroke and cardiac arrest. LDL cholesterol test kit gives a reliable estimate if your cholesterol level is within normal limits.


 


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.


 


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.
