Chronic heart disease (CHD) affects both men and women and reports indicate that 2 out of 3 adults in the UK over the age of 35 have raised cholesterol levels. A raised cholesterol level represents a considerable risk factor for stroke, heart attack and vascular dementia. Adults aged 40 years or older, and those suffering with diabetes or have a family history of heart disease are at a greater risk of heart or coronary disease.
High cholesterol can remain undetected for many years and may only be discoverable when it has reached an advanced stage.
Anyone who has two or more indicators of an increased risk should consider getting their cholesterol levels checked. SELFCheck offers a quick and easy option, requiring a simple finger prick blood sample which can be completed in 5 minutes. You will recieve a result indicating your total cholesterol level. A visual, easy to interpret result will give clear information to yourself, which can be discussed with your GP should an abnormal result be shown.
Early detection allows preventative action and management.
Once used simply dispose of all test components within normal household waste.
Speak with your GP for further advice. No medical decisions should be taken without consulting a doctor. Nevertheless, reducing external influences, such as stopping smoking, reducing alcohol intake, regular exercise, eating more fresh fruit, vegetables, oily fish and drinking more water may help to reduce cholesterol levels.
