What's this test for?
Our Cholesterol and Lipid Profile test is a total cholesterol test which measures any abnormalities in the levels of triglycerides, LDL and HDL cholesterol as well as determining your risk of heart disease based on your ratio of HDL.
Cholesterol is a fatty substance found in the blood that plays an essential role in how cells in the body work. Too much cholesterol in the blood (hyperlipidaemia) can have a serious effect on your health as it increases your risk of having health issues such as a stroke or heart attack. Our Lipid profile and cholesterol test measures all various types of cholesterol in your blood.
Results are normally available in 2 working days after receipt of the sample at our lab. You will receive an email and SMS once your test results are ready to be downloaded from your secure account area, where you can also simply track and manage all your health test results at any time.
