Ik ben erg positief over de diabetes test die ik bij Homed-IQ heb gekocht! Het daadwerkelijke testproces is goed te doen en de uitslag van de dokter was duidelijk. Voor mij een absolute uitkomst. Ik vind dat iedereen toegang moet hebben tot testen zoals deze diabetes test, want dit geeft veel informatie. Homed-IQ maakt dat mogelijk!

De algehele ervaring was uitstekend. Maar de verwerkingstijd was iets te lang, maar dit kwam mogelijk omdat ik pas laat op vrijdagavond had besteld. De rest van het proces is naar behoren verlopen.

Ik heb een antistoffentest gedaan van HomedIQ. De test was gemakkelijk af te nemen, aangezien de instructies uitgebreid en gemakkelijk te begrijpen waren. De resultaten van de test werden binnen 72 uur geleverd zoals geadverteerd en de website was goed te navigeren. Ik zou Homediq van harte aanbevelen aan zowel vrienden als familie.

"De test werd binnen een dag geleverd en ik vond het eigenlijk allemaal wel gemakkelijk te doen, het activeren van de test zou misschien iets eenvoudiger kunnen. Ik hoefde in ieder geval niet naar de dokter of een dag vrij te nemen van mijn werk om mijn bloed te laten checken of terug te komen naar een dokterspraktijk voor de resultaten! Het is snel en eenvoudig.

Verzending is erg snel en het afname proces is prima beschreven in de meegeleverde handleiding. Het kostte me maximaal vijf minuten om te doen. Ik wist dat het moeilijk voor me zou zijn om naar de dokter te gaan, vooral vanwege COVID-19, dus dit was een redder in nood. Het kostte 4 dagen om mijn resultaten te ontvangen.

What is a Cholesterol Test?

This test measures the total cholesterol, LDL, HDL and Triglycerides level in your blood. The test is a fingerprick test that you can easily take from home. Your sample will then be examined by a certified laboratory and you will receive the results within a matter of days. It couldn’t be easier!

Common symptoms:
High cholesterol in itself does not produce any noticeable symptoms. This is why it is often discovered by accident if someone has too high a value.

About the test results

Cholesterol
Cholesterol is produced in the liver and is found in every cell of the body. There are two types of cholesterol: one in the form of HDL (high-density cholesterol) and LDL (low-density cholesterol). HDL is also referred to as the ‘good’ cholesterol and LDL is known as the ‘bad’ cholesterol. One can speak of an elevated cholesterol level if the total cholesterol is above 6.5 mmol / l.

HDL
High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL) is also called the “good” cholesterol because it transports the excess bad cholesterol to your liver to clear it. For the HDL value we use a reference of >0.91, which means that if your HDL value is above 0.91, this is considered normal.

LDL
Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL) transports cholesterol throughout the body, creating the risk that cholesterol builds up in the arteries and can cause cardiovascular disease. For everyone without any risk factors, the LDL value is elevated if higher than 3.37 mmol / l. We apply an upper limit of 2.6 mmol / l for people with risk factors (smokers, diabetic, heart patients etc).

HDL% of total cholesterol
The percentage of total cholesterol refers to the amount of HDL (= “good” cholesterol) in the body that can fight the LDL (= “bad” cholesterol). The higher the HDL% of total cholesterol, the better.

Triglycerides
Triglycerides are the most common types of fats in the body. Excess calories, alcohol and sugars are converted into triglycerides and stored in the body as fat. A value lower than 2.28 mmol / l indicates a lower risk of cardiovascular disease.

How to prevent high Cholesterol?
There are certain ways to prevent high cholesterol, these include but are not limited to:

  • A healthy and varied diet.
  • Limit products that contain saturated fats.
  • Eat as little salt as possible.
  • Limit your alcohol consumption to a maximum of one glass per day.
  • Stop smoking.
  • Make sure you exercise enough in one day.
