Use your home cholesterol test results to determine your health risk status. If your home cholesterol test results indicate high risk for heart disease, we encourage you to take action to see a Doctor and discuss lifestyle and health changes to decrease your cholesterol risk levels.
The CheckUp America Cholesterol Panel tests for:
- Total Cholesterol
- HDL (Good cholesterol)

Over 100 million Americans have elevated cholesterol levels; many of them are unaware of their diagnostic levels and that they are at risk for heart disease. By using the CheckUp America Cholesterol Panel, you can now conveniently understand your diagnostic levels and risk for cholesterol-related heart disease.
Everything you need to collect a small finger-stick sample and mail it to laboratory is included with the kit. Use this kit when and where it’s convenient for you. You can use this test without the need for physician intervention and a visit to the doctor’s office.

Total Cholesterol - Provides a general indication of your risk for Heart Disease. When Total Cholesterol is too high, you are at a greater risk for Heart Disease which can lead to a heart attack or stroke.
HDL-cholesterol - Often referred to as "good cholesterol", the higher your HDL level, the lower your risk for Heart Disease.
Triglycerides - As a form of fat found in the bloodstream, elevated triglycerides are often accompanied by other factors (such as low HDL or a tendency toward diabetes) that raise the risk of Heart Disease.
LDL-cholesterol - Often referred to as "bad cholesterol", excessive LDL may lead to a buildup of cholesterol in your arteries. The higher your LDL level, the greater your risk for Heart Disease. Reducing your LDL is the main goal of cholesterol-lowering treatment.
