Too many people think of cholesterol as something bad but in actuality you need cholesterol for the synthesis of vitamin D and hormones in your body. Cholesterol is needed to help with fat absorption molecules by converting to bile in your digestive tract. One way to manage your health is to get a lipid profile test and that’s where we come in. We are the supplier of these analytes that go into these blood tests. We also see another promising set of biomarkers that will be very popular for heart disease management and they are Pro-BNP and NT-proBNP which we are offering . “
