Who should take the test?

The test is recommended for anyone interested in monitoring their cholesterol levels and assessing their risk of developing cardiovascular and arteriosclerotic diseases at an early stage. It can be conducted regularly, ideally 1-2 times per year, allowing individuals to respond promptly to any increases in cholesterol levels through, for example, dietary changes and so on.

What is the Cholesterol Test, and why is it important?

The Cholesterol Test is a blood test that measures your total cholesterol level. It's important because high cholesterol levels can indicate an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases. Monitoring cholesterol helps optimize your diet, improve your health, and reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

What does the Cholesterol Test measure?

This test assesses the concentration of cholesterol in your blood, specifically measuring the total cholesterol level. It provides valuable information about your heart health and risk factors for cardiovascular diseases.

What does a high cholesterol level mean?

Increased cholesterol levels may have a negative impact on health. High cholesterol has no symptoms per se. It does, however, raise the risk of vessel conclusion and heart disease. Therefore, cholesterol levels can be used to assess your risk of cardiovascular disease.

Are there any dietary changes that can help improve cholesterol levels?

Yes, dietary changes can play a significant role in managing cholesterol levels. Reducing saturated and trans fats, increasing soluble fiber intake, and incorporating heart-healthy foods can be beneficial.

I am not getting enough blood from my finger, what can I do?

Prepare the blood draw well: Hold your hand a little longer under warm water and circle your arm to stimulate blood circulation. Prick the finger on the side, not directly on top of the fingertip. The middle or ring finger of the non-dominant hand is usually best. When piercing, place your finger on a firm surface to avoid unconscious pulling back. A light squeeze and massage towards the fingertip helps stimulate blood flow.
