High Cholesterol

Buy Low Drugs Internet Drug Store can make it affordable to treat your high cholesterol with medications that can ease the pain caused by this condition. High cholesterol is excess levels of cholesterol in the blood.

Cholesterol in the blood consists of three main components: Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL) - involved in depositing cholesterol and other fats throughout the body, High levels of LDL put you at risk for hardening of the arteries and heart disease; High Density Lipoproteins (HDL) - involved in eliminating cholesterol and other fats from the body. High levels of HDL are protective against heart disease; and Triglycerides - a common form of fat in the body.

Causes of high cholesterol include:

  • Inherited tendency to have high cholesterol
  • High-fat diet
  • Overweight
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Excess alcohol intake

High cholesterol rarely causes symptoms. However, eventually, symptoms may include: angina (chest pain), and in people with an inherited form of high cholesterol, cholesterol deposits: in the tendons, under the eyes, and around the cornea.

  • Lifestyle Changes
  • Limit the amount of fat and cholesterol you eat.
