Get a Cholesterol and Lipid Panel Checkup in Gravesend, Dartford, or Bexley
Cholesterol is a waxy substance that your body needs, but too much of it can cause serious health complications
Not all cholesterol is bad. It circulates throughout your entire body and helps to build cells, make vitamins, and produce hormones. Your liver produces all the cholesterol lipids you need, but you can also get cholesterol from the foods you eat. It’s this second type of cholesterol that can put you at risk for heart disease, heart attack, and stroke.
High cholesterol doesn’t usually cause any noticeable symptoms. Most people don’t realise they have high cholesterol until they get tested for it.
Risk Factors for High Cholesterol Include:
- Being overweight
- Eating a diet high in fat and sodium
- Not getting enough exercise
- Smoking cigarettes
- Drinking too much alcohol
- Being over the age of 40
