Why it is important to keep check on cholesterol levels?
It is quite surprising to observe that many of us are not aware about of basic information about cholesterol and its effects on our health. Cholesterol is a soft, waxy, fatlike substance mainly produced by the liver. And it’s not inherently bad; in fact, it’s vital to all kinds of bodily processes, from keeping cells healthy to making hormones.Cholesterol travels through your bloodstream in small packages called lipoproteins which are basically of two types i.e. low-density lipoproteins (LDL often referred as bad kind) and high-density lipoproteins (HDL often referred as good kind). Our body should maintain a healthy level of both of these lipoproteins to carry out normal functions.
Too much of the bad kind — or not enough of the good kind — increases the chances that cholesterol will start to slowly build up in the inner walls of arteries that feed the heart and brain.If a clot forms and blocks a narrowed artery, a heart attack or stroke can result. High blood cholesterol itself does not cause symptoms; so many people are unaware that their cholesterol level is too high. It is advised that adults aging 20 years and above should get their cholesterol levels checked every 5 years.
