What is cholesterol?
Cholesterol is one of the words you hear when talking about health, especially when it comes to the heart. You’ve probably been told that high cholesterol is bad for your heart, and you need to bring down the levels. Well it’s a little more complicated than that.
LDL cholesterol, or “bad cholesterol”
LDL’s mainly responsible for carrying cholesterol to your arteries. When there’s too much LDL, it could end up forming cholesterol walls around your arteries. This is known as cholesterol plaque.
HDL cholesterol, or “good cholesterol”
The main advantage of HDL cholesterol is that it acts to remove the harmful effects of LDL. HDL can either return LDL cholesterol back to the liver, or get rid of it from your body completely.
Getting your cholesterol levels checked
According to experts, everyone over 20 years of age should check their cholesterol levels once every four to six years. As you grow older, the frequency of check-ups needs to increase as well. If you have a history of high cholesterol, your doctor might suggest more frequent check-ups.
