The level of cholesterol in the blood is an indication of the risk of developing heart disease or having a stroke. Cholesterol tests can be used to monitor high risk patients and help them to reduce their risk of these diseases through diet, exercise and drug treatment.
A test to identify the level of cholesterol in the blood can be conducted by taking a small sample of blood for analysis in our laboratories.
