Having an accurate measure of your LDL cholesterol ("bad" cholesterol) level is more important than ever. In fact, the National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) identifies elevated LDL cholesterol as the primary target of cholesterol-lowering therapy.
Did you know there is a test method available today that measures LDL cholesterol directly and provides you and your doctor with an accurate measurement?
Some laboratories still use an equation established in the 1970's (known as the Friedewald Formula) to estimate (calculate) LDL cholesterol concentration.
But now, with the availability of a MEASURED, DIRECT LDL test, the accuracy problems associated with the older, calculated method are no longer an issue. This website was created to provide the latest information on the direct testing of LDL cholesterol. Click here to find out more about Sekisui Diagnostics.
