Knowing your cholesterol levels is important for protecting your health. High cholesterol in your blood can result in plaque forming along the inner walls of your blood vessels. Plaque can cause a number of health problems, including artery damage, decreased circulation and an increased risk of blood clots.
A cholesterol test lets you know the state of your cholesterol levels. It measures the level of fats (lipids) in your blood. Having healthy cholesterol levels can lower your risk of heart disease, such as heart attack, and stroke. That’s why Goshen Health Community Engagement provides opportunities for a cholesterol test. We want to protect your well-being and prevent the development of a serious condition.
Ask your primary care provider about a cholesterol test. You can also learn more about getting a fasting lipid profile by calling (574) 364-2496.
