Causes High Cholesterol

Hypercholesterolemia, literally meaning high blood cholesterol, is the presence of high cholesterol levels in the blood. To understand the causes of high cholesterol, it is important to realize that a high cholesterol level in the blood is not a disease. Instead this medical condition can be likened to a metabolic derangement that could be secondary to many diseases and could contribute to specific types of disease like cardiovascular disease. It is closely related to the medical terms.

Transfatty acids are mostly present in margarines, processed and fried foods, and in commercial baked goods. With regard to diet and cholesterol, those suffering from high cholesterol levels should be eating plenty of fiber, especially soluble fiber, identified in beans and oats, fruits and vegetables.

High blood cholesterol comes with no warning signs. Though it poses a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease which could lead to a heart attack or a stroke, people diagnosed with this medical condition often feel fine, and do not take the illness seriously.
