Cholesterol function blood test

The cholesterol function blood test is something you should consider having carried out yearly:

  • As you get older
  • If your diet is especially rich
  • If you have gained weight recently
  • If you easily get tired
  • If your family has a history of having high cholesterol levels

If you exercise minimally, or if you have other medical issues (e.g. heart disease or diabetes), then getting your cholesterol level checked annually is a good way of monitoring both your general health and your risk of future medical problems.

Your annual cholesterol screen at your IPSA Medical clinic

Having your annual cholesterol screen at your IPSA Medical clinic will allow your IPSA Medical specialist to guide you on how to maintain your health. At your IPSA Medical clinic, your cholesterol results are available within 24 hours, and your IPSA Medical physician will both interpret and explain them fully to you. IPSA Medical always gives you a copy of your cholesterol results. Your IPSA Medical clinician will also give you dietary advice, advice on how best to exercise, and will recommend the retesting period to you. If you present with very high cholesterol, your IPSA Medical physician might recommend initiating your treatment immediately and can also advise you on the types of natural supplements that will help to reduce your cholesterol level naturally.
