Source link Cholesterol is a topic of much interest in the medical community, and new research related to its effect on health is constantly evolving. ScienceDaily recently published an article on Cholesterol News, which provides a comprehensive overview of the latest studies and findings related to cholesterol.

Published by the American Society of Clinical Nutrition, the article emphasizes the importance of obtaining cholesterol readings on an ongoing basis and keeping them within normal ranges. The article also covers the various factors that affect cholesterol levels, including age, gender, lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise, and medical conditions such as diabetes and kidney disease.

ScienceDaily also details the various effects of high cholesterol on the body. In addition to increasing the risk of heart attack and stroke, excessive cholesterol in the bloodstream can contribute to conditions such as atherosclerosis, a narrowing and hardening of the arteries, peripheral artery disease, chest pains and more. For people with existing coronary heart disease, too much cholesterol can further put them at risk for more serious issues.

The good news is that cholesterol levels can be managed and even improved with the help of dietary changes, exercise, and if necessary, treatment with medications. The article provides information on lifestyle modifications such as eating a balanced diet with minimal saturated fats and avoiding sweets and processed foods. Exercise is also a key factor, with just 30 minutes most days of the week being enough to lower cholesterol and maintain healthy levels.

Those seeking medical treatment can find options at their local doctor’s office or at a specialty clinic. Statins are a common choice and are available both over the counter and with a prescription. Other options such as fish oil and plant sterols are also available, and may be recommended depending on individual health needs.

The article from ScienceDaily provides a thorough overview of the important topics related to cholesterol. Its well-rounded and comprehensive review of the effects, causes, and treatments make it an excellent source of information for those interested in learning more about this important medical topic.
