After so many years of being forced to visit a doctor’s office or laboratory to check your cholesterol, it’s a real breath of fresh air that there are now several reliable options for checking cholesterol at home. Of course, there is currently no app for this and you will need to take a small blood sample regardless of test, but modern testing kits make all of this quite easy. We’ll explore your options below.
Before checking your cholesterol at home, it is important to make sure you obtain not only your total cholesterol, but also the breakdown of the Total Cholesterol into the healthier HDL (good) cholesterol, less healthy LDL (bad) cholesterol, Triglycerides, or fats in the blood. Some of these tests will give you a result after a few minutes of processing your sample, while others have you mail in your sample.
As said, there are several options now available for at-home cholesterol monitoring that won’t require some people to visit a doctor or a lab.
Knowing that you’re looking for a test that provides a breakdown of the markers above (HDL, LDL, Triglycerides, and blood fats), here are some of the most common testing solutions that may work.
And as always:After you take the test, you will want to still discuss with your doctor to make sure you understand your personal results and implications.
