FAQs

There are 2 types of cholesterol, and you might have heard them called good and bad cholesterol. Good cholesterol is also known as HDL. Bad cholesterol is known as LDL or non-HDL. Together, they make up your total cholesterol level.

Your total cholesterol levels will be specific to you. We'll let you know whether your results fall within a normal range or outside of it once we've processed your results, taking into account variables like your age and biological sex.

Talk to your doctor before taking this test. Being pregnant can have a noticeable impact on your results, so make sure to check in with your GP first.
