Lifestream's cholesterol monitors can be used to monitor progress over time as you begin taking steps to lower your cholesterol. It is not meant to replace the care of your physician, but rather to enhance it.
Lifestream's cholesterol monitors provide test results as accurate as tests used by doctors and medical labs. In fact, a number of doctors use this same type of test in their offices. Lifestream's cholesterol monitor was evaluated in consumer studies throughout the U.S. When the instructions were followed carefully and all the steps were performed correctly, the accuracy, on average, was 96%.
The Lifestream Technologies Cholesterol Monitor is for total cholesterol only.
