Cholesterol Screening or on Cholesterol Lowering Treatment

(But not if you have cardiovascular disease eg. angina, heart attack or stroke)


A fasting cholesterol blood test is recommended for everyone aged over 40 years.  If this is normal then retesting every five years is usually sufficient. 


For those taking regular cholesterol lowering treatments please have your cholesterol levels checked every 15 months. If you have any problems or have stopped your cholesterol lowering medication you should see the doctor.
