What is Cholesterol?
Cholesterol is a fatty substance that is essential for the body’s function. The body aims to keep cholesterol between narrow limits, this is considered healthy. However, when this balance becomes disrupted, it can lead to a higher risk of disease and illness. When measuring a person’s cholesterol, we look at high and low-density lipoproteins (HDL and LDL) and the ratio between these two. When someone refers to having high cholesterol, this means having high total cholesterol of high LDL cholesterol, also referred to as ‘bad’ cholesterol.
The main causes of high cholesterol are due to genetics, a sedentary lifestyle, an unbalanced diet rich in saturated fat, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, or a comorbid condition such as diabetes, liver disease, kidney disease or polycystic ovaries syndrome.
