Cholesterol is an important building block in the body, it is a fatty substance that helps to produce parts of cells in the body. Whilst cholesterol is an important part of the body, too much of it may lead to an increased risk of clots in the blood which cause heart attacks and strokes. High levels of cholesterol may increase your risk, but we now know that there are different types of cholesterol in the body, some of it good and some of it bad.

We therefore need to look at different types of cholesterol to get a more complete picture of your health. Cholesterol is produced in the liver and is influenced by levels of exercise, what we eat, smoking, medication and other factors such as obesity.

CRP is a measure of inflammation and can also be important in establishing if you are at risk of heart disease. It may be temporarily raised if you are unwell at the time of the test.
