Cholesterol: Good and Bad of It

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)

Cholesterol: Good and Bad of It

Over the last few decades, the word cholesterol has assumed a different connotation. It has come to be known as a silent killer that spells doom for health. However, what we need to realize is that a certain amount of cholesterol is essential for the proper functioning of the body. The liver produces about 85% of the cholesterol that is required by the body normally. The ever changing food habits have introduced a lot of processed foods that are loaded with saturated fats. Along with this, reduced physical activity has led to accumulation of cholesterol in the blood.

The types of cholesterol are based on the density and we have 2 types of density that is Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) and High Density Lipoprotein (HDL). LDL is more dangerous than HDL, called as bad and good cholesterol respectively. In addition, the triglycerides and lipoprotein are also critical indicators of overall cholesterol levels. Depending on a person's age, height and weight, normal levels are derived for each of these four.

Because of their density of the cholesterol molecules, as they are circulating in the blood stream, they tend to get sluggish and settle down along the walls of the blood vessels, referred to as plaque. This plaque attracts more and more cholesterol from the blood and the layer gets gradually thicker. This reduces the thickness of the blood vessels and in severe cases even completely blocks blood flow to important organs like the brain and heart, leading to severe conditions like stroke and heart attack respectively.

However, it is not always that all cholesterol is bad. It is one of the essential things for the proper body functions with the main functions listed below:

  1. Each cell in the body requires it to form the cell membrane, the protective layer around the cells
  2. Synthesis of vitamin D is done with the help of cholesterol, which is very essential for skin health
  3. It also helps in hormone formation. In addition to steroids, other hormones like testosterone, estrogen, cortisol require cholesterol as a main ingredient
  4. Formation of neurotransmitters and overall nerve function requires cholesterol. This ensures optimal neurological functioning.

So, as noted above, there are, both good and bad aspects to cholesterol. It is not all that dangerous a thing that it is made out to be. The trick is to maintain a good level of cholesterol so that the body's requirements are met, and at the same time, the harmful effects are kept at bay. Some important parameters to manage, include the percentage of bad cholesterol in the blood and the ratio of triglycerides to HDL in the blood. These are considered fair indicators of heart health and if need be, lifestyle changes and/or medications can be undertaken to manage overall health and reduce risk of heart disease and stroke.

Dear , at your age, chest pain is often not due to heart disease. However, it is better to get a cardiac check up with ecg and blood tests. If needed, echocardiography and tmt will be done.

I had chest pain 3 years ago. I consulted cardiologist and did all required Test such as ECG, TMT, ECHO. And all blood test. They came normal. But my chest pain continued. I had done 3 TMT ECHO test in past 3 years. They all were ok. But in dec 2017 I had saviour pain in my chest. I went for CT ANGIO. It was also normal. But the pain in my chest goes and comes back. My all blood test are normal. But now I am always in fear. My heart beat goes up when there is pain in my chest. Now I am feeling mild dizziness and abdominal pain from last 2 months. My doctor finally says that I have FUNCTIONAL BOWEL DISORDER. That is why all these things happened. I am confused now what to do. I am male 28, 5.5 and 69 kgs. Ans also feel nausea throughout the day.

Change diet, lifestyle and your docotr Chest pain can arise from the Heart, Gut, Muscle, Joint, Bone, Lungs ,Mineral, Vitamin deficiency's ,Stress and many more 1) Detailed history including dietary & lifestyle habits needed in addition to medical, occupational history 2) Comprehensive lab testing needed .Do tests for inflammation, mineral and Vitamin deficiency and doing tests related to the heart alone is completely wrong. The Drs do not address the whole patient .That is why your results are normal but you are not normal-still having symptoms. 3) Get detailed dietary and lifestyle habits advice based on the basis of detailed history and lab testing only. If Your cardiac test results are all normal but you are still having symptoms that clearly indicates your Dr. Has not addressed your diet and lifestyle, has done incomplete lab testing and has not given you the right dietary and lifestyle advice because your Dr. Is interested only in medication which puts a temporary fix and not interested in educating you which is a permanent fix. Send a feedback with your name and contact number& take a consult for doing the detailed history taking, doing the right tests & getting the right dietary and lifestyle advice. Always get second opinion about your disease .Do not blindly believe your doctors .They may have vested interests and get bribes from all possible sources. All diseases begin in the gut and no health issue can be fixed without fixing your diet and lifestyle. If you fix these 2 things you mostly may not need medicines at all.

Hi Sir, I am suffering from Chest pain and pain in veins of right arms and a lower legs.
Well chest pain may be due to costo chondritis, or muscle spasm, it may be due to cardiac cause also, for this you need to visit a doctor, pain in hand may be due to spondylosis.
