How can I measure blood cholesterol levels at home?

how can I measure blood cholesterol levels at home?

You can use a home testing machine.It is preferable to use a machine which measures HDL( good cholesterol), LDL( bad cholesterol) and triglycerides( fats in blood).
But home testing for cholesterol is not usually required as unlike blood sugar the blood lipid levels do not change so frequently and therefore do not need to be tested so frequently.For people above 20 years in age who do not suffer from cholesterol disorders testing is recommended every five years.
