nice find, heat added!

Do you have to stab yourself with a sharp to get blood for the test? Won't bother me but others might be in for a shock.

Thanks OP, If anyone does recieve something please do let me know.
Most things i enter i dont recieve. its just to get personal info

I found this one a freebie site but am a bit worried as it is the same link as 2 YEARS AGO which was expired , so not sure if we will get them after all oO

Link just takes you to Tesco homepage, Where's the thing for getting the kit?

Can't find it either!

Nice pic, OP! Is it to distract us when we do the test?

Thanks cazzap06 and pawl

Zoë's the most sensible dietician I've ever read, apart from Gary Taubes. One day we'll all wake up and realise that the food industry are far more worse than the tobacco lot.

I don't think its fake it just might be an old offer a freebie site resurrected , so don't know if it is a very old offer which in fact has finished or if they got some info about it being available again?

I might not hold my breath though (_;)

It was posted here 2 years ago but I posted it here as it was a current offer on a freebie site ; http://www.hotukdeals.com/freebies/free-cholesterol-kit-from-tesco-602030

They do seem to arrive though , in the past , so if a current offer we should get them! ; http://www.hotukdeals.com/misc/tesco-cholesterol-kit-came-today-376784

And re ''save your money'' its free anyway!!!

Thanks worth a try to see if we get..

not avaiable but 239 hotness?

im still waiting for my pedometer from last year from tesco!. that was a freebie too that never arrived

Good advice mb1, I would advise others to follow the links also do some research before taking any Statins from your doctor, your body needs cholesterol and if you do take Statins get some Co Q10 you are going to need it,read up on the side effects of Statins and monitor yourself.

Surely if your cholesterol is high then lifestyle changes can get it down rather than take medication?

I won't be taking any meds for mine , just will cut down on unhealthy stuff which I need to do anyway! (_;)

Thanks link worked

Not always enough unfortunately, the 'diet' bit is actually a small part it according to some literature I read in the doctors surgery.

Recent guidelines agree. Only those with an assign score of 20% or above should receive statins first line. Those below this should inc excercise and reduce sat fat in the diet. However, if you have already had a stroke or heart attack you are considered at high risk of a further episode and therefore should be on a statin. You would also in this case need to aim for a total cholesterol of less than 4.

Mine was 7.7 when I had it done at the local health centre 4 years ago. Need to have it checked again but worried that it's maybe even worse! Cut back on fat for about a year but gradually got back into old habits.

Yes, it can't always be brought down by diet. High cholesterol can be hereditary, as in my case: family history of it. Statins very likely when I go next time which I plan on doing before Xmas. Can't go after as it will be off the chart.

you will find that they keep lowering the recommended level because the lower the level the more they can hand out Statins = profit, we are being farmed like cattle
