Cholesterol is a fatty substance in the blood. A simple blood test can check the levels.
MUMS can also check your levels of triglycerides – another type of blood fat. A cholesterol test can be used along with other simple tests to assess the health of your heart.
You can have a cholesterol check with our Phlebotomist, GP or Cardiologist.
Cholesterol Checks at MUMS
Cholesterol Check £40.00
HDL Cholesterol £33.00
HDL (high-density lipoprotein), or “good” cholesterol, absorbs cholesterol and carries it back to the liver. The liver then flushes it from the body. High levels of HDL cholesterol can lower your risk for heart disease and stroke.
VLDL Cholesterol £65.00
VLDL (very low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol can build up and clog the arteries, known as atherosclerosis. The amount of VLDL cholesterol in the blood can help doctors evaluate a patient's risk of heart disease and stroke.
