One must consider all risk factors for Cardiovascular disease when evaluating an individual`s Cholesterol status. The more risk factors a person has, in combination with undesirable lipid levels, the greater the risk of developing Cardiovascular disease.
Pathology tests and wellness services provided by Pathologists Lancet Kenya assess these risk factors: high Blood pressure, increased Body Mass Index (BMI), Diabetes and high Total Cholesterol. If an employee’s Total Cholesterol is high, Lancet will recommend an additional lipid testing to assess for high LDL Cholesterol and low HDL Cholesterol (Lipogram).
We can also provide a healthy eating plan to help employees reduce Cholesterol and manage Diabetes.
