We all know that high cholesterol levels can be dangerous. In more extreme cases high cholesterol can lead to arteriosclerosis - a thinning and hardening of the arteries. This, in turn, means that your heart has to work harder to pump blood around your body. The result can be increased strain and, in severe cases, problems such as heart attacks.

A range of factors can affect cholesterol levels in the body. Factors that may contribute to unhealthy cholesterol levels can include being overweight, getting little exercise, being of a more mature age, and an unsuitable diet. Indeed it has been estimated that 2 out of 3 adults currently have raised cholesterol levels. 

Measuring Cholesterol Levels

The sooner unhealthy cholesterol levels are identified, the sooner remedial action can be taken. Behavioural changes such as exercising more, enjoying a healthy diet, and possibly even the use of supplements such as plant sterols, are all recognised ways to support a more healthy cholesterol level in the body. 

The key is identifying high cholesterol as early as possible - and that’s where a cholesterol home test kit can come in handy. 

Even more, if you do currently suffer from high cholesterol, then utilising a home test kit can be a quick and easy way to monitor the results of improvements in your diet and exercise regime. In this way, you can be confident that your efforts are being suitably rewarded.

For best results the cholesterol home test kit should be carried out on an empty stomach and you should not have had anything to eat or drink for a period of 12 hours before carrying out the test. For more accurate results take the test first thing in the morning. It would be helpful to check the test results in a good light source in order to interpret the colour comparison better.
