What are these tests anyways?
High cholesterol usually doesn’t have any signs or symptoms. The only way to know if you have high cholesterol is to get tested!
So what even is cholesterol? Cholesterol is a waxy substance that your body needs, but only in the right amounts. Unhealthy levels can lead to high blood cholesterol.
This test measures your total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, and triglyceride levels.
