Cholesterol is a waxy substance found in the fats in everybody’s blood. It’s necessary to have some cholesterol in your blood to build new cells and make essential hormones. However, if cholesterol levels become too high, it can start to clog up important blood vessels that supply the heart and brain. There are no symptoms of high cholesterol levels – until a major event such as a heart attack or stroke. Our pharmacists can measure your total cholesterol level in the pharmacy to let you know where you stand, and refer you to your GP if levels are outside the normal range.
