What is high cholesterol?

Cholesterol is one of lipids in the blood, another form of blood lipid is triglycerides. Dyslipidemia, high cholesterol, hyperlipidemia, hyperlipoproteinemia, hypercholesterolemia or Hypertriglyceridemia, refers to an abnormally high level of cholesterol or triglycerides in the bloodstream.

Causes of High Cholesterol
  • Foods that contain high levels of saturated fat is an important factor
  • Other risk factors, such as smoking, drinking too much,etc
  • some types of high cholesterols are due to inherited or genetic defects. Familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) is the inherited high cholesterol levels, and familial combined hyperlipidaemia (FCH) is where the triglyceride levels are very high as well.

Diagnosis of High Cholesterol

After fasting for 12 hours, during which only water should be consumed,a blood test called a lipoprotein profile to measure cholesterol levels.

UK diggnosis of hyperlipemia

Total cholesterol level
          less than 5mmol/l: ideal
          between 5 to 6.4mmol/l: mildly high
          between 6.5 to 7.8mmol/l: moderately high
          above 7.8mmol/l: very high

LDL cholesterol level     less than 3.0mmol/l

US diggnosis of hyperlipemia

Total cholesterol(TC) level
            less than 200 mg/dL: desirable
            between 200–239 mg/dL: borderline high
            240 mg/dL and over: high

Triglycerides (TG) levels
           less than 150 mg/dL: normal
           between 150–199 mg/dL: borderline-high
           between 200–499 mg/dL: high
           500 mg/dL and over: very high

LDL cholesterol levels
           less than 100 mg/dL: optimal
           between 100 to 129 mg/dL: near optimal
           between 130 to 159 mg/dL: borderline high
           between 160 to 189 mg/dL: high
           190 mg/dL and above: very high
