Cholesterol Blood Tests at BMI Hospitals
Private blood testing for Cholesterol is a good way to help assess your risk of developing heart disease or stroke. If your risk is high then we would advise you to see your own GP who will usually advise you to take a statin medicine to lower your cholesterol level. As a minimum you should know your total cholesterol and a measure of your HDL (high density lipoprotein; good) cholesterol. Total Cholesterol (TC) The total amount of cholesterol in your blood – ideally less than 5 mmol/L (less than 4 mmol/L in those at high risk). LDL Cholesterol (LDL-C) The amount of LDL -cholesterol or “bad” cholesterol – ideally less than 3 mmol/L (less than 2 mmol/L in those at high risk). HDL Cholesterol (HDL-C) The amount of HDL cholesterol or “good” cholesterol - ideally over 1mmol/L (man) over 1.2mmol/L (woman). TC:HDL ratio This is the TC figure divided by the HDL-C figure. A ratio over 6 is considered high risk - the lower this figure is the better. Triglyceride (TG) This reflects your body’s ability to clear fat from the blood after a meal. Ideally it should be below 1.7mmol/L when fasting between 8 – 12 hours.
