Testing Your Cholesterol is Easy.

A simple blood test confirms your LDL, HDL and Total Cholesterol levels. It’s done at a blood-testing lab and only takes a few minutes to complete. It’s easiest to do the test before breakfast because it’s a ‘fasting blood test’. (It’s more accurate when you haven’t eaten for 12 hours before the test - you can drink water). Talk to your doctor to organise this test.

Ask Your Doctor for Your Test Results.

Your cholesterol test results are sent to your doctor. Find out if your LDL-Cholesterol is above your target level. If it is, ask your doctor what the next steps are.
