Cholesterol Information

Health condition

People with high cholesterol levels are prone to coronary heart disease. People with poor eating habits or eat food rich in fat, or have taken steroids in their life, seem to develop high cholesterol. Some individuals with low liver function and a diminished thyroid activity, can also have this problem.

Excessive cholesterol contributes to atherosclerosis and subsequent heart disease. The risk of developing heart disease or atherosclerosis increases as the level of blood cholesterol increases.
