A cholesterol test is a blood test designed to check how high your cholesterol levels are.

Cholesterol is a fatty substance found in your blood. It’s created naturally by your liver, but can also be found in certain foods. Your body needs a certain amount of cholesterol to work properly, but too much can be dangerous.

Having high cholesterol levels in your blood increases your risk of getting a stroke or developing heart disease.

If you or your doctor is worried that your cholesterol levels are too high, you might be offered a cholesterol test.

Note - Due to a national increase in coronavirus testing, our test lab partners are experiencing delays of up to 3-4 days when delivering results from other test kits. We ask for your patience and compassion during these unprecedented times, and we're deeply grateful for your continued understanding.
