    WHY SHOULD I PERFORM A HEART HEALTH TEST?

    The heart health test helps you identify any cholesterol imbalances, including high levels of bad cholesterol. Early detection of your cholesterol levels will allow you to make appropriate diet and lifestyle changes to reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke.

    This convenient home blood sample collection kit helps check your heart health by measuring your total cholesterol, HDL (good) cholesterol, LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides.

    It is important to understand that anyone can have high cholesterol without even knowing it. Therefore having a test done to check your levels is really the only way to really know if you have high cholesterol.

    WHAT CAUSES HIGH CHOLESTEROL?

    It’s mainly caused by having a poor diet and eating food high in saturated fats, not exercising enough, being overweight, smoking and drinking alcohol. High cholesterol can also run in families or those who also suffer from diabetes.

    High cholesterol is a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke and therefore it is very important to check your levels and manage them early through lifestyle changes and possibly medication prescribed by your doctor.

    IS A FASTING SAMPLE REQUIRED FOR THIS TEST?

    Yes, please fast for a minimum of 6 hours prior to collecting your sample for all tests.

    You should not have any food or drink including tea/coffee and juice. Also avoid chewing gum and or smoking during your fasting period. You can drink water as it is important to keep hydrated the night before and the morning of your sample collection. It is recommended to take your sample first thing in the morning and that you return your sample by post directly after it has been collected.

    HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE IT GET RESULTS?
