What is High Cholesterol?
High cholesterol is a health condition that occurs when there is an increased level of (lipids) fats in the blood due to metabolic disorders. This is predominantly affecting those individuals who are having a low liver function or reduced thyroid movement. It may also transpire to individuals whose diet is very kaphagenic.
There are two types of cholesterol, HDL (High-Density Lipoprotein) and LDL (Low-Density Lipoprotein). HDL is often called “Good” cholesterol and LDL is called “Bad” Cholesterol. So, the ratio of total cholesterol to HDL is more important than the overall cholesterol level in your body.
