Hi, I had a 40's Health check by the NP about 4 yrs ago and was told I had high cholesterol. Advised to eat more healthy and introduce plant stanols.
Had a Bluecrest blood test this week for my life insurance, which still shows a slight high level. I don't know how accurate it is.
Am i entitled to a free NHS cholesterol test? 'm 51,
My father had triple heart surgery, has high cholesterol, heart failure. My mm also had high cholesterol. 2 o f my grandparents died of heart attacks, my other grandparent died of a stroke.
Bluecrest blood test results:
HDL Cholesterol 1.7
LDL Cholesterol 3.0
Total Cholesterol 5.6
Total Cholesterol/HDL ratio 3.29
