Check your own Total Cholesterol blood test level.
This blood test online is important to your own wellness program, because it measures the amount of cholesterol in your blood to help you determine your risk for heart disease. Cholesterol is a substance found in all of your body's cells, where it plays an important role. But your body can develop too much cholesterol if you eat the wrong types of foods, especially fried foods and foods with saturated or trans fats. Some medical conditions can also make your cholesterol level too high. If you have too much cholesterol in your blood, it can stick to and inflame the walls of your arteries, leading to heart disease.
Excess cholesterol helps cause narrowing of the vessels that bring blood to your heart muscles. This narrowing is called atherosclerosis. If your heart muscles don't get enough blood, you may be at risk for a heart attack. The American Heart Association recommends that all adults ages 20 and older have their cholesterol checked once every five years.

What do my lab test results mean?
Many things may affect your lab test results. These include the method each lab uses to do the test. Even if your medical test results are different from the normal value, you may not have a problem. To learn what the results mean for you, talk with your health care provider.
Total cholesterol is measured in milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL). This is what your cholesterol number may mean:
- Less than 200 mg/dL is a good number. Your risk of heart disease may be low.
- 200 mg/dL to 239 mg/dL is borderline high, and you may be at some risk for heart disease.
- 240 mg/dL or higher means your cholesterol is high and your risk for heart disease is higher than that of a person with normal cholesterol.
High cholesterol may be linked to these conditions:
- Inherited diseases that cause high cholesterol
- Gallbladder stones. Kidney failure
- Cancer of the pancreas or prostate
- Low thyroid hormone
Repeat your lab test, as often as you would like, without your doctor's order. Stay informed about your health changes, particularly when taking long term medication or following life style changes.
