What is Cholesterol?

Cholesterol is a waxy yellowish substance present in your blood that the body needs to build and maintain cellular health. Our body also does need cholesterol to make hormones and substances that help digest foods. The main function of cholesterol is transportation of fats. It also plays several other roles such as converting sunshine to vitamin D and protects red blood cells and also serves as defense mechanism.

Types of Cholesterol

Cholesterol is carried through your blood, attached to proteins. This combination of proteins and cholesterol is called a lipoprotein. There are two types of lipoproteins:
Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) - this is the "bad" cholesterol that can cling to arterial walls and create blockages that result in strokes and heart attacks.
High-density lipoprotein (HDL) - this is the good type that is going to actually protect you from heart disease.

Causes of Cholesterol

Some of the most common causes of high levels of cholesterol in the body are family history of heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure, intake of excess of fats in the diet, lack of exercise, stress, excessive drinking and smoking, diabetes and stress.

Symptoms of Cholesterol

High cholesterol has no symptoms. A blood test is the only way to detect high cholesterol. Mostly, a test called lipoprotein profile is used to test the cholesterol levels in terms of total cholesterol (the sum of HDL, LDL and VLDL), HDL, LDL and triglycerides.
Usually, blood cholesterol levels should remain below 200 mg/dL (milligrams per deciliter of blood). It is considered borderline high when it is between 200 and 239 mg/dL, and when it increases to 240 or higher mg/dL it is regarded as high cholesterol.


High cholesterol can cause atherosclerosis, a dangerous accumulation of cholesterol and other deposits on the walls of your arteries. These deposits (plaques) can reduce blood flow through your arteries, which can cause complications, such as: chest pain known as Angina, Heart attack and Stroke.
