Total and triglyceride cholesterol.
There are no symptoms of high blood cholesterol levels. Developing symptoms means that your cardiovascular disease is well advanced. The only way to know is to have a cholesterol test. Blood tests determine the level of HDL (good cholesterol), LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides which are other damaging fatty substances in your blood.
Too much bad cholesterol in the blood can cause arteries to become blocked with fatty deposits that attach to the wall of the artery causing them to become narrow. This prevents the blood getting through easily. Over time the artery will become blocked increasing the risk of having heart disease, a heart attack and strokes
When assessing your risks of developing cardiovascular disease we check you total cholesterol which looks at the ratio of all the tests including your body mass index, height, weight, blood pressure, family history and your age and then we can assess whether you have a high, moderate or low risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
Blood pressure and pulse check.
A high blood pressure often causes no symptoms but if left untreated can develop into serious cardiovascular diseases and lead to strokes, heart attacks and angina. Lifestyle, dietary changes and medication can control blood pressure and decrease health risks.
Diabetes can go undetected often for many years until picked up at a routine health check. Blood sugar levels raise in diabetes and can lead to considerable health consequences such as eye disorders, kidney disease, nerve damage, cardiovascular disease leading to heart attacks, stroke and poor circulation.
