What is cholesterol?

Cholesterol is a type of lipid, or fat, that is essential for the body's normal functioning. It plays a vital role in building cell membranes, producing hormones like estrogen and testosterone, and aiding in the digestion of fats. While the body produces its own cholesterol, it is also found in certain foods, such as meat, dairy products, and eggs. However, excessive levels of cholesterol in the blood can lead to health problems, including an increased risk of heart disease and stroke.

Why is cholesterol testing important?

Cholesterol testing is of paramount importance in maintaining cardiovascular health and preventing potential complications. PocDoc's simple test provides valuable insights into your cholesterol levels. Elevated LDL cholesterol, often termed "bad" cholesterol, can lead to the buildup of plaque in arteries, increasing the risk of heart disease and stroke.

By monitoring cholesterol levels, individuals can take proactive steps to protect their heart health and maintain overall well-being.
