Cholesterol Check

Our cholesterol test allows you to check your cholesterol levels from the convenience of your own home, quickly and accurately.

The test includes a home finger prick blood test kit and is perfect for those on a weight management program or those looking to improve their overall health. You simply provide a small blood sample at home and send it to one of our UKAS accredited UK laboratories who will scientifically analyse key markers including LDL, total cholesterol, HDL and triglycerides.  

This cholesterol blood test will provide you with more accurate and more detailed results than non-lab analysed home kits. You will get individual results for each of your cholesterol markers and any out of range results will be reviewed by a doctor. Your results will be made available within 48hrs on your own personal health dashboard where you can track changes over time and gain information and advice on how to improve.

What our customers say

Wasn’t feeling quite right and believed I may be chronically stressed. Took the baseline plus option which is a wider range of tests and this confirmed by expectations and also highlighted two further issues which I’ve raised with my GP. Well worth the piece of mind.


The service was great from beginning to end. The test kit arrived quickly and was easy to use, the instructions were clear and simple to follow and my results were available sooner than I expected. Thanks everyone!


Forthwithlife are just so helpful - professional and extremely easy to deal with. I would highly recommend these guys and would literally never look anywhere Else. Superb company.


Fast easy service putting my mind at rest quickly. Sent off sample on Monday, got results back Tuesday afternoon.


I enlisted the help of Forth to help me get to the bottom of my current health concerns. The test was really easy to and my results were available within day. Using Forth has helped me take the action needed to get my hormones back on track.

I suffer from a hereditary condition which causes my body to store too much iron.  My biggest issue before using Forth was getting an appointment with my GP.  Now using Forth I can track my iron quickly and easily and take action before levels start to affect my health

Mark Threfall, 29

I'd put off getting regular blood tests before because of the long-winded process of a GP visit. Forth has changed all that. The process is very quick and very easy, with thorough, well-explained results delivered to your inbox within days.

As a former Olympic cyclist I always wanted to look after my health. This has never changed to this day but become a lot easier via Forth, it’s the only way to really understand your own body. 

Brian Smith

Really excellent service - we bought two 'vitality' tests after reading about Forth With Life in Natural Health magazine. The packs came quickly, the phlebotomy appointment at home was convenient and professional and the results were quick and insightful- I recommend without reservation to anyone wishing to gain a comprehensive understanding of biomarkers indicative of their health and wellness!

Taking the test is simple just make sure you follow all the instructions so you follow the correct procedures. The customer service is second to none and the results are easy to understand and follow.
