High Colesterol

Were you looking for information about High Cholesterol? High colesterol is a common misspelling of high cholesterol.
 
The body needs cholesterol to function properly; too much, however, can cause health problems. Specifically, high cholesterol can cause a condition called atherosclerosis, the effects of which include coronary heart disease, angina, and stroke. While the causes are often unknown, risk factors for the condition include diet, weight, and heredity.
 
Treatment typically starts with changing your diet, losing weight, quitting smoking, and other lifestyle changes. On a cholesterol-lowering diet, you will reduce the amount of cholesterol, saturated fat, and trans fat that you eat. If lifestyle changes alone are not enough to reduce cholesterol levels, medication may be necessary.
