Dangers of high cholesterol


How to manage high cholesterol?ūüßź

.

Cholesterol is a waxy substance that is an essential component of our bodies. Your body makes most of the cholesterol that is found in your bloodstream. It’s primarily produced in the liver.

.

Dietary cholesterol ‚Äď found in animal foods like eggs, shellfish, cheese, and organ meat ‚Äď makes up a smaller portion of your blood cholesterol pool.

.

Despite what we‚Äôve all heard, there‚Äôs actually no such thing as ‚Äúgood‚ÄĚ or ‚Äúbad‚ÄĚ cholesterol; there is only one type of cholesterol. Your LDL and HDL values refer to how much cholesterol is carried in your HDL and LDL lipoprotein particles.

.

LDL is often referred to as ‚Äúbad‚ÄĚ cholesterol because high levels of LDL can cause heart disease, damage arteries, and leave you at risk of stroke and heart attack.

.

Fortunately, you can lower LDL cholesterol levels by changing your diet. Certain foods have been proven to be effective at reducing LDL cholesterol, like:

‚úĒÔłŹblack tea

‚úĒÔłŹavocados

‚úĒÔłŹgreen vegetables

‚úĒÔłŹcocoa and dark chocolate

‚úĒÔłŹnuts and seeds

.

Here are current recommendations for optimal blood lipid levels:

‚Ė™ÔłŹtriglycerides: under 150 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dl)

‚Ė™ÔłŹLDL cholesterol: under 100 mg/dl

‚Ė™ÔłŹHDL cholesterol: at least 60 mg/dl

.

ūüĎČAre your blood test results abnormal?

ūüĎČTime to change your diet and lifestyle!

.
