Were you looking for information about Cholesterol? Cholesterole is a common misspelling of cholesterol.
The human body uses cholesterol to hold cells together and make hormones, vitamin D, and substances that help digest foods. While the body makes its own cholesterol, you can also obtain this substance by eating animal products, such as meat, eggs, and butter. Two main types of cholesterol include 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 cholesterol test.
