High cholesterol

High cholesterol

Your body needs cholesterol to build healthy cells, but high levels of cholesterol can increase your risk of heart disease. This can occur because cholesterol causes the accumulation of fatty deposits in your blood vessels. As these deposits grow over time, they make it difficult for blood to flow normally through your arteries. Sometimes, those deposits break suddenly and form clots that cause a heart attack or stroke.

High cholesterol can be inherited, but it’s more often the result of unhealthy lifestyle choices such as smoking, poor nutrition and alcohol use – and the good news is that this means that high cholesterol is preventable and treatable. A healthy diet, regular exercise and, sometimes, medication can help reduce high cholesterol.
