What is high cholesterol?
High cholesterol describes the presence in the blood of too much cholesterol, a fatty substance responsible for transport of fats within the body. Too much cholesterol may block blood vessels, a condition known as atherosclerosis, which can block blood vessels and lead to events such as heart attack and stroke.
The right balance
When it comes to cholesterol levels, what is important is the ratio of High Density Lipoprotein (HDL or so-called ‘good’ cholesterol) to Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL or so-called ‘bad’ cholesterol).Relatively high HDL and low LDL is considered healthy. However, elevated LDL and low HDL is unhealthy.
