What are the symptoms of high cholesterol?
High cholesterol rarely causes ongoing symptoms but it is common for those suffering from high cholesterol to experience a sudden onset of side effects like a heart attack or stroke, which is caused by the damaging excess of lipoproteins.
While this may sound alarming, there are many known warning signs of heart problems such as heart disease which can indicate whether your cholesterol is high.
Over time, ‘bad cholesterol’ known as low-density lipoproteins (LDL) builds up around the arteries which deliver the blood supply around the body and back to the heart.
When these arteries get blocked, coronary heart disease can occur.
