Why Consider This Test

Placeholder
Detection

Nearly 1 in 4 four adults living with diabetes – 7.2 million Americans – didn’t know they had the condition. Only 11.6 percent of adults with prediabetes knew they had it1. There are no known symptoms of high cholesterol, so many people don’t know that their cholesterol is too high. Having high blood cholesterol raises your risk for heart disease, the leading cause of death, as well as your risk of stroke, the fifth leading cause of death2

Placeholder
Progress and Prevention

Studies have found that you can help prevent, delay and manage high cholesterol and your risk for Type 2 diabetes by making healthy dietary choices and performing moderate exercise1,2.
