Customer Question

My latest cholesterol check with my GP was 5.2 and then I had a week of eating too much. However, I'm now back on the bandwagon to get my cholesterol back down. My query is that I've just done a home kit cholesterol check but it's showing as 283!!! How on earth does this match up to the check that I get at the GPs?

Are these tests done after a 12 hour fast?
