A simple test to have a complete lipid profile, check the level of cholesterol in the blood and prevent the onset of cardiovascular disease.
In our pharmacy we measure cholesterol for a complete lipid profile.
Knowing the levels of “good” and “bad” cholesterol in the blood is essential to prevent various diseases such as hypercholesterolemia, which few people know they suffer. However, LDL and HDL levels can be easily measured with a simple blood test.
In order to prevent hypercholesterolemia it is recommended to:
- Maintain a healthy diet by reducing fats (especially saturated ones);
- check your body weight periodically;
- exercise regularly;
- reduce alcohol consumption;
- avoid smoking.
