ill have heart attacks this year and about half that number will die. Knowledge and understanding of your personal cholesterol levels is key to managing a healthy heart."

The higher your cholesterol, especially LDL-cholesterol, the greater the risk of suffering a heart attack. A major contributor to heart disease is the buildup of cholesterol in the bloodstream, narrowing arteries and restricting blood flowing to the heart.  Other factors include age, family history, smoking, high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity.

If you know your cholesterol level, you can take specific actions to reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke, Vogt said.  If tests results indicate a high level of cholesterol, Home Access encourages you to consult your doctor. 

The CheckUp America(SM) Cholesterol Panel uses a few drops of self-collected fingerstick blood mailed to the certified testing laboratory. A comprehensive lab report is mailed back to the home, and is also available online or by phone through the Home Access counseling center.  Results are available within three days of samples delivery to the lab. The CheckUp America(SM) Cholesterol Panel is a complete test system, and includes the necessary components for the collection, packaging and mailing of a fingerstick blood sample to the clinical testing laboratory, laboratory resulting and reporting.
