Cholesterol Testing

Cholesterol Testing at Brookes Pharmacy

Cardiovascular disease is the biggest cause of death in Ireland for both men and women. Healthy eating, being physically active and not smoking all help to reduce your chances of these diseases. One of the best ways to prevent heard disease and stroke is to keep your cholesterol at a healthy level.

Brookes Pharmacy can check your cholesterol level in store. This involves takingĀ a small sample of blood (about one large drop) from the finger tip which is then put into a machine which measures the cholesterolĀ level.

We will let you know your cholesterol level and tell you what, if any, further action should be taken. By taking other risk factors into account (such as age, family history, smoking history etc), we will also be able to tell your overall risk of developing cardiovascular disease and give you advice on lowering your risk.
