The CheckUp America Cholesterol Panel is an FDA cleared, mail-in fingerstick test that screens for cholesterol levels, brought to you by the American Diabetes Association in cooperation with Home Access Health Corporation. This product allows an individual to self-test from the comfort and privacy of their home.
The CheckUp America Cholesterol Panel tests for:
- Total Cholesterol
- HDL (Good cholesterol)
- LDL (Bad cholesterol)
This test is the same serum-based testing method as used by Doctors and Hospitals throughout the world. One difference: it only takes a fingerstick sample of blood.
Over 100 million Americans have elevated cholesterol levels; many of these are unaware of their diagnostic levels and that they are at risk for heart disease. By using the CheckUp America Cholesterol Panel, you can now conveniently understand your diagnostic levels and risk for cholesterol related heart disease.
Use your test results to determine your health risk status. If your results indicate high risk for heart disease, we encourage you to take action to see a Doctor and discuss lifestyle and health changes.
The CheckUp America Cholesterol Panel includes a collection kit, laboratory test services, and support from our medically directed contact center. Each kit includes everything necessary to collect, package and mail a small finger-stick sample to our laboratory using a prepaid, pre-addressed mailer. All testing is performed in a CLIA certified lab, CAP-certified laboratory.
