Cholesterol, a type of fat made by the body and obtained through certain foods, is necessary for the human body to function properly. However, too much cholesterol can cause health problems.
 
The effects of having too much cholesterol result from atherosclerosis, which is a narrowing and hardening of the arteries. Some of these effects include coronary heart disease, angina, and strokes. The only way to find out if you have high cholesterol is to have a blood cholesterol test. It is generally recommended that a person get a fasting cholesterol test every five years.
 
Other names for high cholesterol include hypercholesterolemia and hyperlipidemia.
