A well-balanced life with MNI – What is Cholesterol?

Why is high cholesterol dangerous?

High cholesterol can double your risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) by contributing to atherosclerosis, the buildup of plaque inside your arteries. Plaque contributes to cardiovascular disease in several ways, including reducing blood flow to different parts of the body, causing the heart to work harder and reducing the supply of oxygen to tissues.

Enlarged plaques may completely block an artery, interrupting the oxygen supply and leading to death of the affected muscle or tissue as in the case of a heart attack or stroke.

Atherosclerosis is known as a silent killer because it causes few or no symptoms, which explains why high cholesterol is often diagnosed only when a major cardiovascular event, such as a heart attack, has occurred.

That’s why regular checkups are important – even if you live a healthy life. And looking at an individual’s risk profile is a very good starting point for early intervention.

What factors increase the risk of cardiovascular disease?

These risk factors include a lifestyle of unhealthy eating, inactivity, being overweight, drinking and smoking. Cholesterol also increases with age, and after menopause women have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

Diabetes is a major risk factor and all diabetics should make heart health a priority. South Africa has a very high incidence of hereditary hypercholesterolemia, so it is important that people are tested at an early age.

Healthy people over the age of 20 should have their cholesterol levels tested at least every four to six years. Then, extensive medical research indicates that the damage caused by chronic inflammation often plays a major role in the development of cardiovascular disease. Chronic systemic inflammation is an independent risk factor for heart disease.

Linking chronic systemic inflammation to heart health

Some of the inflammatory processes that occur in the body do not have obvious symptoms.

Although active, it often goes unnoticed until illness sets in.

An example of this type of “silent inflammation” is the process that occurs in the blood vessels. Over time, systemic inflammation damages the wall of blood vessels and, together with abnormal cholesterol, leads to many life-threatening cardiovascular complications such as heart attacks and strokes.

Even when people take steps to reduce their risk of heart disease, such as lowering their cholesterol levels, lowering blood pressure and achieving glycemic goals (controlling blood sugar), they may still be at risk for inflammation, so addressing inflammation is vital.
