Do you know your cholesterol level?
Elevated values or not? A self-test gives a quick answer
Risk factors such as overweight, smoking, high blood pressure, an unbalanced diet with many animal fats and lack of exercise promote elevated cholesterol values. With a simple self-test, everybody can check if their cholesterol values are too high or within the normal range. The test should be performed regularly, because the consequences of prolonged high cholesterol such as heart diseases are irreversible. When the result shows elevated values, a change in diet and lifestyle can be discussed with the doctor.
