Why Testing For Cholesterol Is Important?

Our general health tests offer advanced cholesterol testing by measuring the amount of cholesterol and triglycerides in your blood. But why is this important? One of the largest risk factors for coronary artery disease is high cholesterol levels. Furthermore, by testing your cholesterol levels, you’ll be able to get an indication of the potential of fatty deposits (plaque) currently building up in your arteries.

Cholesterol Glossary

  • Total cholesterol. This is the sum of your blood’s cholesterol levels.
  • Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, or the “bad” cholesterol. Too much LDL can cause build-up of fatty acids which reduces blood flow. If these fatty acids rupture it can lead to heart attacks and strokes.
  • High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, or the “good” cholesterol as is assists in carrying away LDL cholesterol. This helps to keep arteries open and blood flowing freely.
  • Triglycerides are a type of fat in the blood. Unused calories are converted into triglycerides, which are stored in fat cells. If High triglyceride levels are high then it could be due to being overweight, drinking too much alcohol, smoking or having diabetes (and more). Dangerously high triglyceride levels can also be found in otherwise extremely fit and healthy people due to the genetics they have inherited from their mother and father

    • Dizziness, weakness, and tiredness
    • Headaches
    • You Look pale

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Is ferritin and iron the same thing?

    Ferritin and Iron are not the same thing in your body. Ferritin is a protein that stores iron and releases the iron when it's needed. Ferritin lives within your body's cells and circulates in tiny amounts in your blood.

    What does ferritin level tell you?

    A blood tests that shows ferritin levels can help you and your doctor understand how much iron your body is storing. If the test reveals that your ferritin levels are lower than normal this can indicated that your body's iron levels are also low - and this, an iron deficiency.

    What is the normal cholesterol level in a blood test?

    Whilst total cholesterol will give you an idea of your risk of cardiovasicular disease, the best indicator is your cholesterol ratio, which calculates the ratio of your 'protective' HDL to your total cholesterol level. The ranges for total cholesterol in adults: Normal: Less than 4 mmol/L Borderline high: 4-5 mmol/L High: At or above 6 mmol/L
