Home Cholesterol Test KitsLet's set the stage. You go to your annual (bi-annual? less?) physical and your doctor tells you that your cholesterol level is too high and you need to take action to lower it. Action might involve more exercise, less saturated fats, quitting smoking, more cholesterol lowering foods, etc.
You, being the good patient, decide that you are going to follow at least some of the good doctor's recommendations and get your cholesterol levels down where they belong.
One thing we all need when working towards a goal is feedback to see how we are doing. You're not scheduled to see the doctor again until your physical next year, so how are you supposed to find out how you are progressing?
Home Cholesterol Tests are now available so you can keep track of your cholesterol levels between physicals. They are reasonably priced($15-20), as accurate as the tests given by your doctor, and easy to use.
The home test involves a pin prick on the finger to get a drop of blood, then you place the blood on a piece of paper containing special chemicals. The paper will change color depending on the amount of cholesterol found. Some home tests use a machine to tell you the cholesterol level found.
