Cholesterol - Facts You Must Know!

MBBS, MD

Cholesterol - Facts You Must Know!

Do you know that cholesterol is found in baby formula and has got some surprising facts about them? Cholesterol is a waxy, fat like substance which is present in all your cells, and your body’s cholesterol level says a lot about the health of your heart in the future. Having high cholesterol increases your risk of acquiring heart diseases and hence, you should try to maintain a normal cholesterol level.
 

Here are some surprising facts about cholesterol, which you should know about:

  1. You cannot live without cholesterol: We are born with cholesterol in our bodies and infants get more cholesterol from mother’s milk. This is why cholesterol is added to baby formula. All the hormones and cells of your body need cholesterol for proper functioning. It also builds the cells and helps the liver to prepare fat processing acids.
  2. One out of three adults have high cholesterol: It is important for all people above the age of 20 to get a cholesterol checkup every five years. According to studies, around 32% of adults in the USA have got high cholesterol levels. Your cholesterol levels may also be affected by factors such as your diet and stress.
  3. High cholesterol can be genetic: Genetics is a major influencing factor in high cholesterol levels. Research has proven that almost 75% of high cholesterol cases are genetic in nature while 25% occur because of diet.
  4. Children can have high cholesterol as well: There is a common misconception that high cholesterol is an issue involving adults only. However, children may also have high cholesterol and it is recommended for you to get your child tested at an early age. For children who are obese and have a family history of heart attacks and high cholesterol, a selective screening is important.
  5. Sweating raises the levels of good cholesterol: Sweating is good for increasing the levels of good cholesterol in your body. You should follow a healthy diet including food items like avocado and salmon. Working out is also important for raising your HDL levels, which prevent heart disease.
  6. Supplements may help in lowering cholesterol levels: The first option for controlling your cholesterol levels is to work out regularly. If you are at a risk of heart attack or have hypercholesterolemia, you have to bank on supplements such as plant stanols and sterols. You can also take cholesterol reducing medications such as statins.

Earlier, the medical community was reserved about prescribing cholesterol lowering medicines and they were given only to critical heart patients. In modern day, statin treatment is recommended to people who have even little chances of heart attacks or stroke.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Dear lybrateuser, -the appearance & structure of your body is controlled by the hormones in your body which lead to the changes which you have mentioned. -do regular exercises like pushups which strengthen your chest muscles & do exercises like crunches, situps which can help reduce your waist size, also do brisk walking, jogging or swimming for overall fitness & loss of weight. -have less of fried, junk food, more of fruits, veg whole grains, so that your weight is maintained.

The Great Cholesterol Myth
One of my top missions has been is to educate people on the true cause of heart disease, and it’s not cholesterol. Most doctors and cardiologists are still testing their patients’ cholesterol numbers and wearing out their prescription pads with orders for prescription-lowering statin drugs. Meanwhile the true cause of heart disease, inflammation, is still largely ignored

The hypothetical link between high levels of total cholesterol and heart disease has NEVER been proven. It’s a diagnosis conjured up to serve drug companies who want to sell cholesterol-lowering statin drugs.

Cholesterol levels are a poor predictor of heart attacks. Only about 50% of heart attack victims have high cholesterol levels, and 50% of people who have high cholesterol do not have heart disease.

Recent studies suggest statin drugs are associated with a higher risk of diabetes, which is a major risk factor for heart disease.

Yes, it can be dangerous. It can drop the blood pressure. Keep a bp monitoring machine at home to prevent such mishaps. If bp gets low then make him lie down with feet raised and make him drink salt drinks /ors solution, till the blood pressure normalise.

Hi lybrate-user, High blood pressure, is a serious health condition that can lead to heart attacks, strokes and kidney failure if not taken proper care. Here are some effective natural home remedies for High Blood Pressure- 1. Watermelon Seeds - Watermelon seeds reduces blood pressure levels and also helps a lot with arthritis. A. Grind equal quantities of dried watermelon seeds and poppy seeds. Take one teaspoon of this mixture in the morning on an empty stomach and again in the evening. B. Else, add two teaspoons of gently crushed, dried watermelon seeds to one cup of boiled water. Steep it for about an hour, then strain it. Take four tablespoons of this water at regular intervals throughout the day. 2. Fenugreek Seeds - Fenugreek seeds are an effective ingredient for lowering high blood pressure due to their high potassium and dietary fiber content. A. Boil one to two teaspoons of fenugreek seeds in water for about two minutes, and then strain it. B. Put the seeds in a blender and mix it into a paste. C. Eat this paste twice a day, once in the morning on an empty stomach and once in the evening. Follow this remedy for two to three months to notice a significant improvement in your blood pressure level. 3. Garlic - Both raw and cooked garlic help control high blood pressure and at the same time reduce cholesterol levels. A. Eat one or two crushed garlic cloves daily. B. You can also mix five or six drops of garlic juice in four teaspoons of water and take it twice a day. 4. Banana - Bananas, highly rich in potassium are one fruit that people with high blood pressure can eat regularly to control it. Having one or two bananas daily is recommended. 5. Onion Juice - Onions have also been found to lower your blood pressure due to the presence of an antioxidant flavonol called quercetin. A. Try to eat one medium-sized, raw onion daily. B. You can also mix one-half teaspoon each of onion juice and honey and take it twice a day for one to two weeks. 6. Honey - Honey can reduce pressure from the heart and also has a calming effect on blood vessels, hence it can be helpful in reducing high blood pressure. A. Eat two teaspoons of honey on an empty stomach each morning. B. You can also mix one teaspoon each of honey and ginger juice with two teaspoons of cumin seed powder. Eat it twice a day. Hope this helps. Good Luck.
