What Is High Cholesterol?

High cholesterol refers to a higher level of total cholesterol and triglycerides in the body, especially LDL cholesterol, known as “bad” cholesterol. Your body requires cholesterol, but too much can put it at risk for cardiovascular problems. HDL cholesterol is known as the “good” cholesterol, which can protect the cardiovascular system and remove LDL cholesterol. When LDL cholesterol levels are high, they can result in plaque forming inside the arteries. This can narrow the arteries and cause them to harden. This is referred to as arteriosclerosis, which can lead to stroke, heart attack and heart disease. Cholesterol level management is critical for those with high LDL levels, especially those who also have low levels of HDL cholesterol.

Effective Cholesterol Management

At My Neighborhood Primary Care, we take high cholesterol levels very seriously. This chronic condition is a warning sign that your cardiovascular system is at risk of serious, often fatal, complications. However, there is more to managing health and your LDL cholesterol levels than just taking a pill. We take a holistic approach to managing your cholesterol levels by considering other factors that could contribute to your chronic condition.

First, it is essential to understand what is contributing to your high cholesterol levels. While eating high cholesterol foods seems like the logical answer, it is rarely that simple. In most cases, those with high cholesterol have little success lowering their numbers just from removing “bad” cholesterol from their diet. At My Neighborhood Primary Care, we will look at all the possible contributing factors such as sex, age, diet, exercise, genetics and other health conditions. Instead of only focusing on your cholesterol, we will work with you to improve your overall health to reduce your risk factors.
