Have you been diagnosed with high cholesterol?

Is lowering your cholesterol a topmost goal?

The first thing you need to do is to keep a track of your cholesterol levels.

Why Calculate Cholesterol

One of the greatest risks of having higher cholesterol is to be prone to stroke including myriads of other heart diseases. A simple blood test done to determine cholesterol levels is called lipid profile. It determines four things:
  • Total cholesterol
  • LDL (low-density lipoprotein), the bad cholesterol
  • HDL (high-density lipoprotein), the good cholesterol
  • Triglycerides, another form of fat in the blood

The need to track cholesterol arises simply because you have higher total cholesterol, higher bad cholesterol and lower good cholesterol. To be aware about these levels is the first step to prevention of any disease that may be a natural corollary.

Use of manual Spreadsheets/Excel Over Desktop/Laptop

If you are diagnosed with higher cholesterol, or if you are very health conscious, you obviously track your cholesterol each time you get it tested. Conventionally, tools used to keep this record are Microsoft excel sheet or any other spreadsheet.

The major drawback of such tools is that they have to be operated manually. This sometimes leads to errors eventually resulting in faulty medical assessment.

Another problem with spreadsheet is they require you to be well-versed with complex formulas if you want to compare, contrast or study your cholesterol levels in comparison to other health parameters. It then becomes only a record tool, and not a smart friend who not only keeps record but also suggests and prompts you to take a meaningful action.

Use of Mobile App to track cholesterol

Any mobile application tracking cholesterol intends to improve clinical support for patients as well as for doctors. It effectively addresses shortcomings present in using Microsoft excel. Companies such as Space-O make sure that the purpose of such mobile applications gets served.
