Does your heart always pound heavily and your blood pressure rise for no apparent reason? This could be the result of high cholesterol! Cholesterol is often mentioned as a risk factor for heart and cardiovascular disorders as well as strokes. But there are two types of cholesterol – LDL and HDL.. The cerascreen® Cholesterol Test is a send-in sample collection kit that will measure the relevant blood lipid values if an increased risk for arteriosclerosis is suspected. The test determines your total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, and testing for triglycerides as well as the LDL/HDL ratio. The process is pain-free and can be done easily from home. Your blood sample will be analyzed in vitro in a CLIA-certified partner lab.
