What is cholesterol?

Cholesterol is a fatty substance essential for building cell membranes, production of certain hormones and vitamin D. There are two main types of cholesterol in the blood: Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL), often referred to as "bad" cholesterol, and High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL), known as "good" cholesterol. LDL contributes to plaque buildup in the arteries, which can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. HDL, on the other hand, helps remove other forms of cholesterol from the bloodstream. Balanced cholesterol levels are crucial to maintaining good health.

Focus on hypercholesterolemia and heart health

Hypercholesterolemia refers to an abnormally high concentration of cholesterol in the blood. This increases the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, including heart attacks and strokes. Our cholesterol tests focus on determining the balance between HDL and LDL, as well as triglyceride levels, to provide insight into your risk of cardiovascular disease. By checking these values regularly, you can take targeted steps to improve your heart health and lower your risk of hypercholesterolemia-related disease.

The Role of LDL and HDL

LDL (Low-Density Lipoprotein) cholesterol is known as the "bad" cholesterol because it can contribute to plaque buildup in the arteries, leading to atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis can obstruct blood flow and increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes. HDL (High-Density Lipoprotein), on the other hand, is considered "good" cholesterol because it helps remove LDL from the bloodstream, which protects against heart disease. A healthy balance between LDL and HDL is crucial for heart health, and our cholesterol tests at offer insight into this crucial ratio.

Hypercholesterolemia: Causes and risk factors

Hypercholesterolemia can be caused by both genetic and lifestyle factors. Familial hypercholesterolemia is an inherited disorder that leads to high LDL levels. Lifestyle factors, such as a diet rich in saturated fats and cholesterol, lack of exercise, smoking and obesity, also play an important role in raising cholesterol levels. In addition, conditions such as diabetes and thyroid disorders can affect hypercholesterolemia. Regular cholesterol testing is essential to monitor these risk factors and enable early interventions.

Diagnosis and treatment of hypercholesterolemia

Hypercholesterolemia is usually diagnosed through blood tests that measure total cholesterol, as well as levels of LDL, HDL and triglycerides. Treatment of hypercholesterolemia usually includes lifestyle changes such as a healthier diet, increased exercise, weight management and smoking cessation. Medication, such as statins, may also be prescribed to lower cholesterol levels. At, we offer not only tests to measure your cholesterol levels, but also personalized health advice on how to influence your cholesterol levels and manage hypercholesterolemia through diet and lifestyle changes.
