High cholesterol levels
Too high cholesterol levels are very common nowadays, as more than 2.6 million people die every year from this illness or its consequences: high cholesterol causes arteriosclerosis, which can lead to heart attacks and strokes. These high levels in the blood can be prevented by eating a healthy diet and exercising. But there are also some medications that are very effective in lowering cholesterol levels.
Some of them are available online at Apomeds:
It has been discovered that genetics are the main cause, but also poor nutrition and a lazy lifestyle without sports, contribute to this illness.
What is Cholesterol?
Cholesterol is a fat component that performs vital functions in the human body. The cell membranes or protective shells of our body cells consist of cholesterol. Cholesterol plays an important role in the production of energy, and it is a basic component of important hormones. Two-thirds of cholesterol are produced in the body and one third is ingested through diet. This makes it more surprising how harmful cholesterol can be if you have too much of it in your blood.
Different types of Cholesterol
There are different types of cholesterol. It is vital to lower the "bad" type called LDL and the triglycerides that your body stores in fat cells. On the other hand, you want to increase your "good" (HDL) cholesterol which helps to get rid of the bad type.
When does Cholesterol become harmful?
As with so many things, the amount of a substance determines whether it is positive or negative for our body. And with cholesterol this is especially the case. If there is too much cholesterol in the blood, it means that the receptors of the cells that normally pick it up, fail to filter out enough cholesterol from the blood. It should be noted that there are two types of cholesterol, HDL and LDL cholesterol. While HDL cholesterol has no negative effects on our body, the value of LDL cholesterol should not be too high, as it can cause the well-known and devastating after-effects.
Symptoms of high Cholesterol
If there is too much LDL cholesterol in the blood, it has no negative consequences at first. However, if this is the case over a longer period of time it will lead to the calcification of the arteries (Arteriosclerosis). This symptom, which basically affects every human being getting older, reduces the inner diameter of the arteries more and more, making the blood flow difficult. As a result, the circulation of affected people gradually deteriorates and certain parts of the body may be undersupplied. For example, Arteriosclerosis in the area of the coronary arteries can lead to a heart attack. The so-called smoker's leg can also be attributed to arteriosclerosis in the blood vessels. When it comes to circulatory problems in the brain, it is called a stroke, which, like a heart attack, can have fatal consequences. As you can see, you should be careful to not have too high cholesterol because the long-term consequences are usually devastating.
Prevention and medical treatments
There are some effective methods that can help keep cholesterol levels under control. Most important for this is a healthy, low-fat diet, as one third of the cholesterol intake comes from food. The more fat, the more cholesterol the diet contains. Especially saturated fat should be avoided. Sport helps the body to maintain a healthy cholesterol level, as well as abstaining from alcohol and nicotine. If these measures are not sufficient, then you should consider the appropriate medication. Apomeds
