Cholesterol Blood Tests
Blood testing for heart disease or stroke
Cholesterol blood tests are done to help assess your risk of developing heart disease or stroke.
If your risk is high then you will usually be advised 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.
