How helpful is a blood test for cholesterol?

While a high cholesterol level can increase the chances of serious heart disease, a moderate level is essential for ideal bodily functions. The body cannot produce hormones, bile, and vitamin D without cholesterol.

Since a high cholesterol level does not result in any visible symptoms, a blood test is the only way to determine whether you have it. If not addressed on time, high cholesterol can be severely detrimental to heart health. The blood test for cholesterol is most beneficial when taken every 3 months.

Increased cholesterol levels can be caused by:

  • Smoking
  • Drinking alcohol
  • A sedentary lifestyle
  • Consumption of saturated fats and trans fats
  • A hereditary condition: familial hypercholesterolaemia

The cholesterol blood tests also include GP advice on sustaining an ideal cholesterol level for your body.
