Lower your chances.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. According to the CDC, about 610,000 people die from heart disease in the US annually–that’s 1 in every four deaths. The good news is that heart disease is preventable, and Direct Healthcare can help. Our cholesterol wellness treatments are specially formulated to help lower your cholesterol and reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, and other health problems.
What is Cholesterol?
Cholesterol is a waxy substance that’s found in your blood. Your liver makes all the cholesterol you need, but you can also get it from some foods you eat. Too much cholesterol in your blood can build up on the walls of your arteries and blood vessels and form plaque. Plaque narrows your arteries and makes it hard for blood to flow through them. This puts you at risk for heart disease, heart attack, and stroke.
There are two types of cholesterol: HDL (high-density lipoprotein) and LDL (low-density lipoprotein). HDL cholesterol is often called “good” because it helps remove LDL cholesterol from your arteries. LDL cholesterol is often called “bad” because it can build up on the walls of your arteries and form plaque. Triglycerides are another type of fat found in your blood. People with high triglyceride levels are at greater risk for heart disease.
Symptoms of High Cholesterol?
High cholesterol can often go undetected and lead to serious health complications if left untreated. Common symptoms include chest pain, shortness of breath, and problems with vision or memory. People may also experience an abnormal build-up of fatty deposits on their skin, particularly around the eyelids or elbows and knees. These deposits, known as xanthelasmas, can be a visible sign of high cholesterol levels. See a doctor for regular check-ups and cholesterol screenings to catch any potential issues before they become serious. Early detection and treatment can go a long way in preventing long-term health problems related to high cholesterol.
