Cholesterol is an oil-based substance in your
body that helps it build cells made by your liver. You have cholesterol in
every cell of your body to help your organs do their jobs. You can also get
cholesterol from eating meat, fish, and dairy. However, if you have too much
cholesterol, it can jeopardize your health.
There are two types of cholesterol: LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol and HDL (high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol. LDL cholesterol, which is often referred to as bad cholesterol, transports cholesterol from the liver into the bloodstream, where it can stick to your blood vessels. HDL cholesterol, the good cholesterol, carries cholesterol from the blood back to the liver where it can be broken down.
High cholesterol puts you at risk for coronary
heart disease and is a primary cause of heart attacks because a build-up of
cholesterol narrows your arteries, restricting blood flow.
Some conditions that can lead to high cholesterol:
– Pregnancy and other conditions that can increase levels of female hormones
– Polycystic ovary symptom
– Liver or kidney disease
People that have high cholesterol often don’t have symptoms. With regular check-ups and blood tests, your physician will be able to detect high levels of cholesterol. Someone with high cholesterol that does not know may suffer an unexpected heart attack because they didn’t know and could have regulated it.
To reduce high cholesterol levels, you should:
– Have a healthy diet
– Incorporate more physical activity into your day-to-day routine
– Avoid smoking
– Achieve and maintain a healthy weight

You may think that you’re doing yourself a favor by keeping your medicine on your bathroom counter so you don’t forget to take it, but is having it in a steamy room after you shower actually harming your medication? Whether you are taking vitamins, such as Vitamin D, over-the-counter medication, or prescription medication, how you store them is important.
