You just had your cholesterol test done last week and wondering what are your results going to be? Whether the numbers would be high enough to go for a treatment. Or what should be the ideal number for you to avoid treatment? We all want a heart-healthy lifestyle and that can be ensured if we keep a regular check on our levels of cholesterol. There are two types of Cholesterol: Good cholesterol aka high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and Bad cholesterol aka low-density lipoprotein (LDL). HDL may lower the risk of heart attack and stroke as it carries LDL from the blood and artery to the liver whereas LDL accumulates plaque in arteries.

Are Cholesterol numbers really important?

Yes! Besides consuming food items with less cholesterol, maintaining your blood cholesterol is vital too. If the latter is high, then we are prone to serious cardiovascular diseases that require quick attention. It is important to keep a record of our blood levels as they are an integral part of tracking and assessing the treatment required. For instance, a simple food like having an egg seems so controversial. But it might be a good to inquire about the healthy or ill effects of these power-packed protein item. The question arises: Should you stop eating eggs if you cholesterol is high? We all agree, eggs are one form of complete food and they help in reducing cancer and blood pressure. However, when having high cholesterol, cut your intake from three omelettes to one omelette or even better have egg white to fulfil the protein intake.
