Accutrend Cholesterol Test Strips

All adults should have their cholesterol levels checked regularly, at least every 5 years after reaching the age of 20. But, did you know that you can actually check your cholesterol, without a visit to the doctor’s office? It can be done at home, and is as easy as using a meter and a strip. It is important to read all product packaging and labels prior to using your Accutrend Cholesterol Test Strips

Cholesterol is the fatty substance found in the blood stream. It is an essential part of our cell linings. The two main sources of cholesterol in our bodies come from our liver or our diets. Genetics plays a part in the amount of cholesterol your liver produces. If you use Accutrend Cholesterol Test Strips regularly, you will always know what your level is between doctor visits. When you visit your doctor, he will ask you about several factors that can influence your cholesterol levels. Age, family history, smoking habits, and blood pressure are all important. Of course, your diet also plays an important part in cholesterol production.

Symptoms of high cholesterol are rare. That is why testing is very important. Having high cholesterol levels can lead to serious health problems that include strokes, heart disease, heart attacks, pancreatitis, gallstones, or peripheral vascular disease.

A full cholesterol profile should be performed every five years, complete with HDL and LDL levels. Currently, the home tests only show your total cholesterol number. The process is comparable to testing your glucose or blood sugar levels. The results provided by Accutrend Cholesterol Test Strips will let you know if you need to make simple changes in your lifestyle that will make an impact on your cholesterol level. You will need to purchase a cholesterol reading meter along with your Accutrend Cholesterol Strips.
