    How long has it been since you had your cholesterol checked?

    We challenge you to get to your doctor by the end of December, get a blood test then come back here to report your results.

    If it's higher than you hoped, hang out with us and discuss solutions for managing your cholesterol and bringing your numbers back into the normal range.

    A blood test that measures your cholesterol also measures your triglycerides. High triglycerides (over 150 ) can raise your risk of heart disease. Check out this slideshow from WebMD's Heart Health Center for tips get your triglycerides into a healthy range: Beyond Cholesterol: 14 Ways to Lower Triglycerides
