Pigging out during the pandemic?  The one test that could change your eating habits.

For months now, thanks to COVID-19, you’ve been asking yourself questions you’ve never faced. How long must I work from home? Is it safe to shop inside the market or should I order my groceries online? If I wear a mask, should I also wear gloves?

The search for answers in this uncertain time is often stressful and may drive you to seek out comfort food to cope! Keep in mind, a pizza slice here and there is not going to cause much harm, but adding the likes of french fries, burgers and fried chicken nuggets to your daily menu could send your cholesterol levels through the roof, and you would never know it.

What is Cholesterol?

Cholesterol is a fatty substance that travels through your blood attached to lipoproteins. It gets into your body two ways, either from the food you eat or from your liver, which creates cholesterol to help you digest foods and make certain hormones.

  • High cholesterol affects 1 in 3 Americans.
  • No signs or symptoms exist for high cholesterol.
  • Your risk for high cholesterol goes up with

If you eat foods like bacon cheeseburgers or hot dogs, you may be putting too much cholesterol in your body, causing plaque to build up along the walls of your blood vessels. As a result, your blood vessels narrow, reducing the amount of blood getting to your heart and other organs, increasing your chance of heart disease.

High cholesterol not only raises your chances of a heart attack, but also increases your risk of having a stroke. The only way to know if you have it is to get tested, and that’s where Any Lab Test Now can help.

Getting Tested at Any Lab Test Now

Any Lab Test Now makes it easy to get a cholesterol test in a safe and clean location. We offer a Cholesterol Panel, which checks to see if your cholesterol levels are abnormal. You can share the results with your physician, who will decide if you should take medication and adjust your diet. This means you will likely have to cut out those comfort foods you’ve come to depend on during the pandemic.

  • Fried foods
  • Sweets
  • Processed meats like bacon, hot dogs

The good news is you can add several foods to your diet that should help lower your cholesterol.

  • Oat bran, whole oats
  • High fiber fruits like apples, bananas, strawberries
  • Fish that is rich in omega-3 like wild salmon

Adding exercise to your daily routine will lower those numbers, too. Scientific data even proves high-intensity aerobic workouts are a great choice. Oh, and if you still smoke — quit. Kicking the habit can lower your cholesterol, too.

If your doctor does put you on medication, chances are you might need to get your numbers checked before you can get a prescription refill. Any Lab Test Now offers a Cholesterol Medical Maintenance Panel that checks to see if your levels have changed and if your doctor should adjust how much medicine you are taking.
