Cholesterol & Blood Glucose Testing

Being aware of Cholesterol and Blood Glucose levels can be one of the first steps to improving and maintaining a healthy heart and body, yet research reveals that eight out of ten people in the UK don’t know their cholesterol levels, in comparison to the USA where the majority of adults ‘know their numbers’.

What is Cholesterol?

Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that is essential for the body in small amounts. It plays a vital role in how every cell works and is also the material which the body uses to make other vital chemicals, including hormones.

It is made in the body by the liver and is also obtained from diet. Dietary Cholesterol is found in foods such as eggs, liver and kidneys and seafood such as prawns. In the past, it was thought that people should limit these foods to maintain healthy cholesterol levels, but it is now known that saturated fat intake is much more influential in raising blood cholesterol.
