Were you looking for information about Cholesterol? Chlesterol is a common misspelling of cholesterol.
Cholesterol is a soft, waxy substance found in all of your body's cells. Your body uses it to hold cells together and make hormones, vitamin D, and substances that help digest foods. Cholesterol is contained in animal products, such as meat, eggs, and butter. Two main types of lipoproteins help move cholesterol through the blood: LDL ("bad cholesterol") and HDL ("good cholesterol"). While your body needs cholesterol to work properly, too much can cause problems. The only way to determine your cholesterol level is through a blood test.
