Description

CardioChek PTS Panels Cholesterol + Glucose Test Strips measure total cholesterol and glucose in whole blood and provide a quantitative result. A MEMo Chip is provided with each package of test strips and must be properly inserted into the analyzer before any test can be run. The MEMo Chip contains the test name, calibration curve, lot number and test strip expiration date. After the test strip is inserted into the analyzer and blood applied to the test strip, test results are displayed in as little as 90 seconds. Total cholesterol values give an indication of the overall amount of cholesterol circulating in the blood at the time the test is given. Approximately 85% of the cholesterol in our blood is produced by our own bodies with the remaining 15% coming from animal products found in our diet. Moderate amounts of cholesterol are essential for production, maintenance and fluidity of cell membranes; nerve insulation and conduction; as well as hormone and bile salt production. However, a high cholesterol level (over 200 mg/dL) can be detrimental to our health, leading to increased fat deposits and build up in blood vessel walls, clogged arteries (known as atherosclerosis) and significantly increasing the potential for heart attack or stroke. Blood glucose is a simple sugar that comes from the breakdown of carbohydrates. It is the primary source of energy used by the body. As we digest carbohydrates, glucose enters the blood, raising blood sugar levels and stimulating the pancreas to release insulin which helps the cells absorb glucose for energy or storage. If blood glucose levels rise too rapidly or too often, the cells become ineffective in their response to insulin leading to metabolic syndrome and eventually diabetes. Hence it is important to test blood glucose periodically to assess your body’s ability to process it effectively.
