Cholesterol Test – Cholesterol Blood Test
The heart is disputably the one of body’s most vital organs: if the heart stops, we stop. That’s why heart health is such an important factor to living a long and healthy life. Unfortunately, cardiovascular disease is very common in our modern society, due to various unhealthy lifestyle factors: poor diet, lack of exercise, obesity, caffeine intake, smoking etc. That’s why we at the London Doctors Clinic offer a range of different blood tests and profiles to explore patients’ cardiovascular health – an important one of which is Cholesterol.
Cholesterol is a type of fat that is naturally produced by the body. The bad news is that elevated Total Cholesterol levels are associated with an increased chance of cardiovascular disease. This is when blood flow to the body is constricted by either blood clots or atherosclerosis, which is the build up of fat in arteries. This can lead to heart attacks or strokes.
The good news is that investigating cholesterol levels is relatively straight-forward: a simple Total Cholesterol blood test costs only £28.80, with results usually available in just a few hours. We also offer a variety of other profiles for more in-depth cholesterol investigation, such as low density lipoprotein (LDL cholesterol) and high density lipoprotein (HDL Cholesterol) levels. We also offer more complex profiles for cardiovascular risk assessment.
Please note, all blood tests are in addition to the cost of a 15-minute GP consultation, costing from £75, during which our affordable private doctors can discuss your cardiovascular health concerns, and advise which cholesterol tests may be appropriate for you.
So if you’re at all concerned about your cholesterol levels, or cardiovascular health in general, why not book in with us today at any London Clinic of our 20 central London locations for a simple cholesterol test that will evaluate your cholesterol and cardiovascular health.
