What is Cholesterol?

Cholesterol is a type of fat that makes up the cell wall, bile and various hormones. Most cholesterol in the body is produced by the liver. We can also get cholesterol from animal sources such as meat, fish, seafood and milk. Because cholesterol does not dissolve in the blood, it binds to a substance called lipoprotein and is carried through the bloodstream to the rest of the body.

The health effects of high cholesterol

If the cholesterol in the blood is too high, it is likely to accumulate on the lining of the blood vessels, making these vessels become narrow, or even occluded. When this happens in the coronary arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle, it can lead to coronary heart disease. Similarly, blood vessels in the brain can be blocked or ruptured due to cholesterol accumulation, causing a stroke that may lead to hemiplegia and even death.
