Cholesterol Check

Cholesterol is needed by the body at a healthy level for normal functioning of the cells in your body, but sometimes these levels can become too high and cause problems. It is important to have your blood checked to monitor your levels to properly manage cardiovascular health. Even if you exercise regularly and lead a relatively healthy lifestyle, it is still important to check your cholesterol regularly to ensure your cholesterol levels remain stable.

Unhealthy levels of cholesterol cause blockages in arteries creating great risk for blood vessel and heart disease, reducing the longevity of life expectancy and quality of life. 

While it has the potential to be a serious condition, by undergoing a routine check, we can work with you to determine:

  • whether there are any health risks

  • what preventative steps to take if detected

  • peace of mind if everything is looking healthy
