What does a Heart Health Screen involve?
This screen includes multiple tests that check for low-density lipoproteins (LDL), high-density lipoproteins (HDL), total cholesterol, and triglycerides. Lipoproteins and lipids are fat collections or fat-protein substances that generate energy and contribute to cell function. By testing for these components, our Heart Health Screen evaluates your risk of cardiovascular disease, including heart attack, stroke, or heart disease.

You will receive a test kit including the necessary tools and pre-paid postage envelope to collect and send in your blood sample to one of our accredited Ireland labs. Once we receive your sample, we efficiently analyse it and provide accurate results regarding your health.
