• Cholesterol is a fatty substance, also called a lipid, normally found in your bloodstream. Your body needs a certain amount
    of cholesterol to function properly. But high cholesterol can lead to health problems. LDL-C is called bad cholesterol because if you have too much in your bloodstream, it can become a danger to your health and can lead to potentially serious conditions. HDL-C know as good cholesterol because it may help remove excess cholesterol. Common health factors such as diabetes, high blood pressure, smoking, obesity family history of early heart disease, and age can make controlling your cholesterol even more important.

    Cholesterol is a waxy, fatlike substance that your body needs to function normally. Cholesterol is naturally present in cell walls or membranes everywhere in the body, including the brain, nerves, muscles, skin, liver, intestines, and heart.

    Your body uses cholesterol to produce many hormones, vitamin D, and the bile acids that help to digest fat. It takes only a small amount of cholesterol in the blood to meet these needs. If you have too much cholesterol in your bloodstream, the excess may be deposited in arteries, including the coronary (heart) arteries, where it contributes to the narrowing and blockages that cause the signs and symptoms of heart disease.

    High cholestrol means , high LDL levels with or without high triglyceride levels .

    This means – these cholestrol will get deposited in ur arteries which carry blood, if it gets clogged especially the arteries which supply blood to your hearth- the outside once which supply energy and oxygen- then u will have an MI followed by ischemia – death of cells of heart.

    so cut down on high fat satutarted diet- mcdonnalds, KFC , chips etc

    high cholesterol ususally refers to your total cholesterol number being over 200. it’s basically a buildup of plaque or artheroschlerosis in your veins/arteries etc. genetics/heredity play a huge part. But, you can watch what you eat and exercise to try and keep levels down. limit saturated fats (animal sources like meat,eggs) if you love red meat, as I do, use lean choices like sirloin, egg whites, chicken etc. at your annual physical your doctor can draw your lipid/cholesterol level. hope this helps.

    Do a google search of "the cholesterol myth" Dr. Ravnskov, Dr. Kendrick, and Dr. McCully will tell you the truth about cholesterol.

    Please confront your doctor with the information below.

  • Susan Yarrawonga

    High cholesterol means a cholesterol level above 5.0 and too much cholesterol can form cholesterol plaque on your artery walls and clog them up and this can lead to a heart attack or a stroke.

    Reducing your intake of saturated animal fats will help and also reducing your intake of refined sugar as sugar can reduce your HDL (good cholesterol), elevate your LDL (bad cholesterol) and increase your overall cholesterol. See items 7, 41 and 57 in http://www.rheumatic.org/sugar.htm .

    Fish oil, garlic oil, apple cider vinegar and oats every day all help to reduce your high cholesterol and other natural remedies can be found in a web search for "high cholesterol" + "natural remedies".
