Take Control of Your Cholesterol

Cholesterol is an important lipoprotein that aids in the creation of healthy blood cells. But, many people struggle to maintain healthy levels of this essential, waxy substance. As stated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), almost 94 million adults in the US have unhealthy levels of cholesterol.

While high cholesterol is frequently diagnosed after health complications develop, cholesterol testing can provide concrete, easy-to-understand results to pave the way to treatment and prevention. If you are concerned about your cardiovascular health, you can take control of your cholesterol with online testing.

Signs You Need Cholesterol Testing

Contrary to popular belief, high cholesterol does not have symptoms. Despite this, there are specific lifestyles, demographics and pre-existing conditions that can increase your risk. If you possess any of the following risk factors, you should consider getting tested:

  • Smoking
  • Family history
  • Low physical activity
  • High trans fat and saturated fat diet
  • Age
  • Health conditions (such as diabetes or obesity).

While cholesterol is difficult to identify, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and getting tested routinely can help prevent health complications. Per the CDC, cholesterol testing is recommended every 4 to 6 years for healthy adults and more frequently for those at risk.
