Getting Cholesterol Tested? Here's What Your Numbers Mean

High cholesterol is a serious problem that will continue to escalate as everyone leans toward cheaper unhealthy food.

This will measure three types of cholesterol: HDL, LDL and triglycerides. In this video, Dr. Tanya Benenson explains what each of these cholesterols mean as well as what you can expect from your results.
