It’s important to perform a cholesterol check so you can determine where you’re at today and then monitor your future progress. Getting feedback about your progress can help motivate you to stick to your cholesterol reduction action plan and also help guide you in a better direction if you’re not seeing the results you expect.
To have to trek off to the doctors every time to have a cholesterol check can mean you put it off or quite simply just can’t get there easily so have to put it off until someone can help you. Well there are ways for you to monitor your levels yourself, which you can do every couple of months or so to keep an eye on things if you’ve gotten your cholesterol to safe levels. If your cholesterol is too high then testing more often could be advisable, perhaps every few weeks to see if you’re heading in the right direction or not.
To perform your own cholesterol test you can use a device such as the CardioChek Cholesterol Meter
. Not only can you check your cholesterol on the Cardiochek device but also other important measures such as triglycerides. You can select which test strips
you want to use and then by simply adding a droplet of blood you will have almost instant results. We recommend using a lancet
for a quick and virtually painless way of retrieving your blood sample.
