Medieval practice here. We should totally let kids stay sick and miss days of schools. Treat parents as stupid because they want the best results and shortest sick time. I know more then parent because I am a Nurse Practitioner and parents are stupid. This is how the Nurse Practitioner treated me. I have Never been so looked down on. Such a condescending attitude from Nurse Practitioner.

I was able to book an appointment the same day within 2hrs. There wasn't a long wait time upon my arrival. The staff was professional and my nurse Champagne was very welcoming. She made it a pleasure to visit and was very informative of my services. I would definitely choose this location for any future needs! My provider was also just as great.

Urgent Care for Children, Huntsville - 2785 Carl T Jones Dr SE
We waited 1.5 hours just to be seen.   We arrived on time for our appointment that we had booked online. We were told that booking online ahead would put you in front of walk in’s.  We weren’t very happy with the long wait. The whole thing took a total of two hours. I feel like it shouldn’t allow multiple people to book for the same time frame. We definitely weren’tput ahead of anyone. The whole waiting room was seen before us except for the person that came in after us. I went up to the desk twice to check on the situation and even though she said we should be seen after 3 people went back (scheduled appts) we were not, so this proves that walk ins are seen in the order they come in and appointments made online do not trump walk ins. We were, however, satisfied with the physicist we saw , and the quality of the care given at the visit, so in the end that matters most to me!  I hope they can fix this system though and or stick to the policy that they tell you is in place that online appts are seen before Walk ins.

Couldn’t sleep due pains in my feet and extremely annoying itching to my feet and ankles. After nurse practitioner looked me over, prescribed meds - which were ready at the pharmacy when I left Urgent Care - once I started to take meds as prescribed I feel so much better. Pains gone and itching has lessened. Thank you to Huntsville Hospital Urgent Care staff.  Highly recommend them!

Book a cholesterol test online

Total Cholesterol
This test measures total cholesterol, which is the sum of low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or “bad”) cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein (HDL, or “good”) cholesterol.
Cholesterol Panel

Elkmont Cholesterol Tests

Cholesterol isn't always a negative thing. It aids in the growth of cells and the production of hormones, among other things. On the other hand, too much cholesterol might be dangerous.

Cholesterol comes from two different places. The liver produces cholesterol, and dietary cholesterol comes from the foods you eat. Cholesterol is found in meat, dairy, and eggs, among other animal products. Foods high in saturated and trans fats may cause your liver to produce more cholesterol than you need, resulting in dangerous cholesterol levels.

High cholesterol increases the risk of heart attack and stroke, which are two of the leading causes of mortality in the United States. In the United States, approximately 38% of people have high total cholesterol levels. Because high cholesterol has no symptoms, it's critical to have your levels checked to ensure they're within normal ranges. Cholesterol levels in children and teenagers should also be checked.

According to the CDC, those over the age of 20 who have a low risk of cardiovascular disease should get their cholesterol checked every five years. Those with risk factors for cardiovascular disease should have their cholesterol checked more frequently. Other risk factors for heart disease

Fortunately, simple lifestyle changes can help you lower your cholesterol. Reduce your intake of saturated fats and eliminate trans fats from your diet as much as feasible. Trans fats are widely found in store-bought cookies and baked goods, and are labeled as "partially hydrogenated vegetable oil" on food labels. Limit your intake of processed foods, especially those heavy in sugar, and consume lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Increase your physical activity by at least three times per week. Any type of physical activity is useful. Instead of taking the elevator during your lunch break, go for a walk. Aim for at least 10,000 steps per day.

Don't smoke, and drink alcohol only in moderation. Not only will these changes help you lower your cholesterol, but they will also improve your cardiovascular health.

Cholesterol Test FAQs

  • Do I need to see a doctor before getting a cholesterol test in Elkmont?

    A cholesterol test is often a simple blood test. While you do not need to see a doctor first, it is a good idea to call your doctor's office and ask about the type of test that will be performed. This is because some cholesterol tests need you to fast before taking them.

  • How much do cholesterol tests cost in Elkmont?

    A cholesterol test's price is determined by several factors, including the type of test required, the location where the test is administered, and whether or not you have health insurance. For example, a cholesterol test at a walk-in clinic or drugstore could cost around $100.

  • Does insurance cover cholesterol screening?

    Cholesterol testing is commonly performed as part of a yearly physical exam, which is usually covered by insurance. Your insurance plan, on the other hand, may place limitations on cholesterol testing. They might pay for a cholesterol test every five years, for example. You can find out what your policy covers by calling your insurance carrier or looking at your policy papers.

  • How can you tell if you have high cholesterol without a test?

    High cholesterol has no visible indications or symptoms. The only way to know if you have high cholesterol is to have a blood test. Over the age of 35 and 45, men and women should get their cholesterol levels examined. You may be at risk for high cholesterol if you have a BMI of 30 or more, don't get enough exercise, smoke, drink too much alcohol, or consume too much saturated or trans fat.

  • What can I eat the night before a cholesterol test?

    You should avoid eating or drinking anything other than water the night before your cholesterol test if your doctor has recommended you to fast. If your doctor has not recommended you to fast, you can eat and drink normally. Consult your doctor if you're unsure whether or not you should fast.

  • How long should I fast before a cholesterol test?

    Most people must fast for 9 to 12 hours before taking a cholesterol test. Fasting for at least 12 hours prior to your test will assist ensure that a single meal has no impact on your results. All cholesterol tests do not require fasting, so check with your doctor and make sure you follow their instructions.

  • How do I interpret cholesterol blood test results?

    A cholesterol test measures total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and HDL cholesterol. There may also be triglycerides and very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL). Total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol should be low, whereas HDL cholesterol should be high. Inquiring with your doctor for assistance in interpreting your results is always a good idea. High total cholesterol may be caused by a higher HDL level, which is actually good. It's vital to understand how your test findings are broken down.

  • What is a normal cholesterol range?

    The unit of measurement for cholesterol is milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL). Adults with total cholesterol levels less than 200 mg/dL are generally considered healthy. Blood sugar levels of 240 mg/dL are considered dangerously high. LDL cholesterol levels should be under 100 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL). 160 mg/dL of LDL cholesterol is considered high. HDL levels should be at least 60 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL). Low HDL levels of 40 mg/dL or below are linked to an increased risk of heart disease.

  • How can I book a cholesterol test through Solv?

    With Solv, scheduling a cholesterol test is simple. Simply type "cholesterol" into the search box, and when the cholesterol test option appears, select it. You can choose to use an existing location or create a new one. You'll discover a list of providers in your area, as well as available appointment times, on the next page. To schedule an appointment, select a time and location that is convenient for you and fill out the form.

  • Can I do an at home cholesterol testing in Elkmont?

    At-home cholesterol testing are possible, but they aren't necessarily accurate or reliable. Pricking your finger with a lancet and transferring a few drops of blood to a test strip are the most common methods for at-home cholesterol testing. Unfortunately, if these tests aren't done appropriately, they can be inaccurate. Furthermore, they usually only measure total cholesterol, which isn't as useful as knowing how your LDL and HDL cholesterol are distributed. For the best results, have the test performed by a certified healthcare provider.
