Cholesterol Medication Panel
The Cholesterol Panel includes tests to evaluate cholesterol and triglycerides levels as well as to monitor any impact medications may be having on liver function.
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) causes more deaths in the US than all other causes, including all cancers. Fortunately, many people are aware of their risk and know that CVD is preventable and are taking cholesterol medications and changing their lifestyles to prevent heart attacks and strokes caused by CVD. It is important to closely monitor the effectiveness of your cholesterol medication to ensure that it is lowering cholesterol levels to diagnostically correct levels. This panel will let you know whether your cholesterol is in the healthy range and can be used to compare your levels over time.
Side effects from long-term cholesterol medications may include damage to the liver. Frequent monitoring of liver function can alert you and your doctor to possible liver damage and the need to reassess the current cholesterol treatment plan.
Stay on top of your heart and liver health with this convenient getLABtested.com Cholesterol Medication Panel.
