Cholesterol level should be measured at least once every five years in everyone over age 20. The screening test that is usually performed is a blood test called a lipid profile. Experts recommend that men ages 35 and older and women ages 45 and older be more frequently screened for lipid disorders. The lipoprotein profile includes:
LDL (low-density lipoprotein CHOLESETROL also called "bad"CHOLESTETROL
HDL (high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, also called "good" cholesterol)
TRIGLYCERIDES (fats carried
in the BLOOD from the food we eat. Excess calories, alcohol, or sugar
in the body are converted into TRIGLYCERIDES and stored in fat cells throughout the body.
High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina
, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function.
Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke
Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain
, called claudication .
Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney.
