How to order a cholesterol test kit online in the UK

  • Fill out a short online assessment form
  • Place an order for a cholesterol test kit
  • It can then be posted to your preferred address or you can collect it from a local post office instead

How to use the test kit

Within 1 to 2 days of placing your order, you’ll receive your easy to use cholesterol test kit with clear instructions.

You will need to provide a small blood sample. You can do this by taking the following steps:

  • First wash your hands with warm water and dry them
  • Use the included alcotip swab to clean the fingertip you would like to use. You should use the third or fourth finger of your non-dominant hand (the one you don’t write with)
  • Twist and remove the purple stick from one lancet, put it on your fingertip and press the purple button at the end
  • You should notice a small drop of blood forming on your fingertip, as your skin has been punctured. Use a clean tissue to wipe the first drop away, hold your hand downwards and massage the side of your finger to form another drop of blood
  • Use your other hand to gently squeeze the finger you’re using and catch the drops in the collection tube. You should fill the small tube to the upper line. If you are unable to fill it, please use an additional lancet on another finger to complete the sample
  • Once your sample is complete, you can use the plaster supplied to stop the bleeding. Put the screw lid on the collection tube, inverting it several times until it is closed securely
  • Please make sure you put your details on the sticky label and fix it on the tube firmly as the lab won’t be able to analyse your sample otherwise
  • Put your labelled sample tube inside the protective wallet and put the wallet into the the prepaid envelope, along with your used lancets. You can use any UK post box to send your test kit back to our partner lab

How the results work

Our partner lab will process your sample 1-2 days after they receive it, so you should get your results quickly, ready to view in your account.

Your test results will show if you have high or low levels of both good (HDL) and bad (LDL) types of cholesterol.

But, you should always visit your doctor for medical advice about managing your cholesterol levels.
