Why should You test for Cholesterol?
Over 100 million Americans have elevated cholesterol levels; many of these are unaware of their diagnostic levels and that they are at risk for heart disease. By using the CheckUp America SM Cholesterol Panel, you can now conveniently understand your diagnostic levels and risk for cholesterol related heart disease
The CheckUp America SM Cholesterol Panel includes:
Total Cholesterol - Provides a general indication of your risk for Heart Disease. When Total Cholesterol is too high, you are at a greater risk for Heart Disease which can lead to heart attack or stroke.
HDL-cholesterol - Often referred to as "good cholesterol", the higher your HDL level, the lower your risk for Heart Disease.
Triglycerides - As a form of fat found in the bloodstream, elevated triglycerides are often accompanied by other factors (such as low HDL or a tendency toward diabetes) that raise the risk of Heart Disease.
LDL-cholesterol - Often referred to as "bad cholesterol", excessive LDL may lead to a buildup of cholesterol in your arteries. The higher your LDL level, the greater your risk for Heart Disease. Reducing your LDL is the main goal of cholesterol-lowering treatment.
