High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL) is known as ‘good’ cholesterol as it removes 'bad' cholesterol from the blood vessels and transports it to the liver. High levels of HDL are associated with a lower risk of developing cardiovascular complications. The test determines your HDL levels and the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases.
Biomarkers Tested: Total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL), total cholesterol:HDL ratio, HDL percentage
Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL) is known as ‘bad’ cholesterol as it transports cholesterol from the liver to the blood vessels. Gradually, the vessels become narrowed and can lead to heart attacks or strokes. This test will determine your LDL levels and the associated risk of developing cardiovascular complications.
Biomarkers Tested: Total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL), non-HDL cholesterol
Triglycerides are a component of body fat present in the blood. They have a vital role in the transportation of body fat from the arteries to the liver. High level of triglycerides are associated with an increased risk of heart disease. By detecting your triglyceride levels, you can prevent heart complications.
Biomarkers Tested: Triglycerides
Frequently Asked Questions
Who is the home cholesterol test suitable for?
Anyone can take this cholesterol test to understand and monitor their cardiovascular health. You should take this test if your parents or siblings have ever had a heart attack, undergone bypass surgery, had cardiac stents or a stroke in the past.
Why should I measure my cholesterol?
While cholesterol is essential for your health, if it gets too high it might increase your risk of heart disease — putting you at risk of things like a heart attack or stroke. It's important to measure your cholesterol regularly as there are no signs of high cholesterol that can warn you before something goes wrong, like cardiac arrest.
What makes my cholesterol levels go up?
Eating foods such as red meat, whole milk dairy products, egg yolks, and some kinds of fish can make your cholesterol levels go up. Being overweight can make your bad cholesterol go up and your good cholesterol go down. Also, after women go through menopause, their bad cholesterol levels tend to increase. However, a more accurate reading of the nature of your cholesterol will be laid out in our comprehensive report that is tailored and personalised for you.
