How Does Your Profile Look?


indexMost adults should have their blood-cholesterol levels checked annually to see if they are in the healthy range. These include “good” HDL (High-Density Lipoprotein),
known as a “lipid profile.”

According to the American Heart Association,
a lipid is a fatty substance that does not dissolve in the blood, and cholesterol, cholesterol compounds, and triglycerides are all lipids, which are transported through the blood as part of large molecules called “lipoproteins.”

It is important for individuals to know their lipid profile because abnormal cholesterol levels are associated with increased risk of heart disease, stroke and other problems.If cholesterol levels are outside optimal ranges, exercise, improved diet and/or medication can help.

When statins are combined with a healthy and balanced diet they can work to lower a patients bad cholesterol levels. Cholesterol itself isn’t bad. We all have and need this wax-like substance in our bodies.
