Cholesterol in 2 minutes

Here’s a brief introductory overview on cholesterol. It is very important to be aware of it and the risks it poses if its levels are high. People with high cholesterol levels do not usually exhibit any symptoms and so it can go unnoticed - insidiously causing damage within the body and leading to serious complications.


Remember:

❗️There is a genetic predisposition to having high cholesterol. It can run in families.

❗️Being slim does not mean your cholesterol levels are not raised. As always, if in doubt, please discuss with your doctor.
