Cholesterol is the fat-like substance naturally found in our body as it is produced by the liver. This substance, however, can also be found in our diet. It is vital for our body to function optimally.

Having too much cholesterol in the body can increase your risk of developing cardiovascular conditions like heart disease. As cholesterol builds up in the inside walls of the arteries, it impairs the normal flow of blood, causing chest pain, heart attack and stroke.

Understanding Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a naturally occurring, fat-like substance that is produced by the liver. It is present in our cells, and we need it so our vital organs like the brain, heart and muscles can function normally.

There are two classifications of cholesterol: HDL (or high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol is tagged as the “good” cholesterol while LDL (or low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol is the “bad” one. It is the LDL cholesterol that clogs up the inside walls of the arteries and contributes to an increased risk for cardiovascular disease.

Periodic, scheduled, comprehensive wellness evaluations are an integral part of your direct care at Skypark. By insisting that each one of our members receives a detailed evaluation regularly, we can prevent serious problems or identify them early so we can deal with them more easily.
