* Inactivity


What Are the Causes of High Cholesterol 2


You are most likely to have cholesterol that is high and that can lead to heart disease if you have any of these risk factors:

* Smoking. Cigarette smoking causes damage to the walls of the blood vessels, making them much more likely to accumulate deposits of fat on the walls of the vessels.

* Obesity. Those that have a BMI or body mass index of 30 or more makes the person at more risk of having raised cholesterol.

* Diet is poor. Foods high in cholesterol, such as like dairy products that are full fat and red meat, increase the overall amount of cholesterol. Eating saturated fat in animal products and trans-fats, found in many commercially baked crackers and cookies also raises the cholesterol level.

* Little Exercise. Exercise helps to boost the body HDL which is the good cholesterol while lowering the LDL or bad cholesterol. Getting very little exercise puts a person at a much higher risk of high cholesterol.

* Hypertension or High Blood Pressure. When pressure is increased on the artery walls it damages the arteries, which may speed the buildup of deposits that are fatty.

* Diabetes. Sugar or glucose levels that are high add to the level of higher LDL cholesterol and also lowers HDL cholesterol. High blood sugar or glucose also causes damage to the lining of the walls of the arteries.

* History of heart disease in family. If a sibling or a parent develops heart disease before the age of 55, levels of high cholesterol can put other members of that family at a larger than average threat of also developing heart disease.

  1. I use macadamia nuts and coconut oil to control my hereditary high cholesterol levels.


    • I don’t eat Macadamia Nuts very often, Mathew, but I eat Coconut oil, daily, along with many other healthy practices, which I am going to document, soon, and make available to everyone: My Daily Health Regimen. 🙂
