High cholesterol signs: The sensation in your foot that puts you at risk of 'amputation'

According to the health body, you should ask your GP surgery for a cholesterol test if you have not had a test before and you’re over 40, overweight, or have high cholesterol or heart problems run in your family.

There are two ways of having a cholesterol test:

  • Taking blood from your arm
  • Finger-prick test.

What comes next

If you have high cholesterol, you’ll usually be recommended a number of lifestyle changes aimed at bringing down high levels.

Healthy eating can make a huge difference to your cholesterol levels and your heart health, whether your cholesterol has crept up over the years or you have a genetic condition.
