About High Cholesterol

Cholesterol combines with proteins in your blood to become lipoproteins. There are two main types of lipoproteins: high-density lipoproteins (HDL) and low-density lipoproteins (LDL).

HDL carries cholesterol to the liver, where it is either broken down or passed out of the body as waste. It is often referred to as "good cholesterol". LDL carries cholesterol to the cells in your body that need it. If there is too much LDL for the cells to use, it can be deposited in your artery walls, clogging up the arteries and causing health problems such as coronary heart disease. For this reason, LDL is often referred to as "bad cholesterol".

High levels of bad cholesterol can be caused by an unhealthy diet containing foods with lots of saturated fat, such as fatty meat, butter, ice cream and cakes. Lack of exercise, smoking and drinking excessive amounts of alcohol can also increase your risk of developing high blood cholesterol.
