Were you looking for information about Cholesterol? Cholestrial is a common misspelling of cholesterol.
Cholesterol is a substance that is made in the liver and can also be found in food you eat. Your body uses this substance to hold cells together and to make vitamin D, hormones, and substances that help you digest foods. There are two types of lipoproteins that help move cholesterol through the bloodstream, HDL ("good cholesterol") and LDL ("bad cholesterol"). The only way to determine your cholesterol level is to have a blood cholesterol test. This test looks at the different components of cholesterol, including LDL, HDL, and total cholesterol.
