Knowing the effects of high cholesterol
Self-care for high cholesterol can be approached in a many ways. Doctors recommend these simple steps to avoid the bad fats, foods that contain saturated fat, hydrogenated fat, and cholesterol such as animal products; fried foods; and sweet, baked snacks can increase cholesterol.
Reduce the risk with fiber, add whole grains, legumes, fruits, and vegetables to your meals to avoid heart disease risk, improve good cholesterol with exercise, start a regular exercise to help raise HDL cholesterol, add soy protein to your diet it can help lower cholesterol, try plant sterols and natural vegetable fats, take supplement or in specially fortified margarines to help reduce cholesterol, take little amount a day of a product extracted from sugar cane to help lower cholesterol .get some garlic everyday of a standardized garlic supplement may help lower cholesterol and prevent hardening of the arteries.
Exercises that train and make stronger the chest muscles may prove to be very important for patients with angina. Eating vitamins, herbs, and dietary and lifestyle changes may be helpful to control cholesterol. Although only major risk factor, elevated serum (blood) cholesterol is clearly associated with a high risk of heart disease. Most doctors suggest cholesterol levels should stay under 200 mg/dl. As levels fall below 200, the risk of heart disease continues to refuse. Many doctors consider cholesterol levels of no more than 180 to be most favorable. A low cholesterol level may not be a guarantee of good heart health, as some people with low levels do suffer heart attacks.
Medical laboratories now describe the total cholesterol measurement into several components, including LDL (bad) cholesterol, which is directly linked to heart disease, and HDL (good) cholesterol, which is defensive. The relative amount of HDL to LDL is more sufficient than total cholesterol. For example if someone with very high HDL to be at relatively low risk for heart disease even with total cholesterol above 200. Evaluation of changes in cholesterol requires consultation with a healthcare professional or dietician and should include measurement of total serum cholesterol, as well as HDL and LDL cholesterol.
Most dietary cholesterol comes from egg yolks. Eating eggs has increased serum cholesterol. Moreover, eating eggs does not increase serum cholesterol as much as eating foods high in saturated fat, and eating eggs may not increase serum cholesterol at all if the overall diet is low in fat. Egg consumption does not be totally safe, however, even for people consuming a low-fat diet when cholesterol from eggs is cooked or exposed to air, it oxidizes and oxidized cholesterol is linked to increased risk of heart disease. Eating eggs also makes LDL cholesterol more susceptible to damage, a change connected to heart disease. Limiting egg consumption may be a good idea, particularly for people with existing heart disease or diabetes.
Light to moderate alcohol consumption (one or two drinks a day) protects the heart. The benefits are strongest in people at high risk for heart disease and may be quite small in those at low risk. Cigarette smoking lowers HDL-cholesterol levels and is directly responsible for almost 20% of all deaths from heart disease. Magnesium deficiency is associated with a low HDL cholesterol level and it has reduced death following heart attacks in some, but not all so these outcomes would suggest that people with high cholesterol levels should take magnesium supplements.
Mediterranean diet had reduced risk of dying from heart disease. Eating sugar has been reduce protective HDL cholesterol and increases other risk factors linked to heart disease. Higher sugar intake has been connected with slightly higher risks of heart disease in most reports. Heart disease is the major cause of death in men and common, men develop coronary artery disease ten to 15 years earlier than women do and their risk for dying of heart disease at younger ages than women is higher. Women Coronary artery disease between the ages of 20 and 34 and after menopause, have higher cholesterol levels than men do. Some evidence suggests HDL levels might have more.
