QuickMedical(R) Launches CardioChek Cholesterol Monitor for Home Use


Doctors say interpreting test results is more than reading a number. Heart-related lab findings, should be evaluated as part of the patients health profile, and that would include factors such as family history and blood pressure. "No test should be interpreted in isolation," says Thomas Behrenbeck, a cardiologist at the Mayo Clinic. That's because tests like those for cholesterol "denote risk factors, they do not diagnose disease."
