Key Cholesterol Facts:

  • Cholesterol is a type of fat found in your blood. You need some cholesterol for the production of important hormones.
  • Excessive cholesterol causes it sticks to your artery walls as atheroma or plaque.
  • HDL cholesterol is called good cholesterol, because it mops up cholesterol left behind in your arteries and carries it to your liver where it is broken down and passed out of your body. Regular physical activity can help increase your HDL level.
    High levels of HDL cholesterol can protect you against having a heart attack or a stroke.
  • LDL cholesterol, or bad cholesterol, ravels from your liver through your arteries to other parts of your body. It sticks to the walls in your arteries making them narrow, thus reducing the blood supply to your heart or brain. Eating too many foods high in saturated fat can raise your LDL cholesterol.
    High levels of LDL cholesterol increase your risk of heart disease and stroke.

Key HbA1c Facts:

  • HbA1c testing differs from blood glucose testing and is used for diagnosing diabetes.
  • The term HbA1c refers to glycated haemoglobin. It develops when haemoglobin, a protein within red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout your body, joins with glucose in the blood, becoming ‘glycated’.
  • Measuring glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) allows clinicians to judge the average blood sugar level over a period of weeks/months.
  • This is important for diabetics as the higher the HbA1c, the greater the risk of developing diabetes-related complications.
