Australian Federal Parliament: Request to make testing for oxidised LDL cholesterol available to Australians and covered by Medicare
Oxidised LDL cholesterol has been implicated in the development of heart disease however testing for it is currently unavailable in Australia. It has been shown through scientific studies that measuring and understanding the level of oxidised LDL cholesterol can be a better predictor of a person's risk of developing heart disease than the current suite of cholesterol tests available in Australia.
Testing oxidised LDL cholesterol levels will allow health practitioners and their patients to more accurately determine the risk of developing heart disease. This will enable better informed choices about whether or not pharmaceutical treatment, diet and/or lifestyle changes are required.
