Article Excerpts About Symptoms of High Cholesterol:
CHECK YOUR CHOLESTEROL AND HEART DISEASE I Q: NHLBI (Excerpt)
Blood cholesterol levels in both men and women begin
to go up around age 20. Women before menopause have levels that
are lower than men of the same age. After menopause, a women's
LDL-cholesterol level goes up--and so her risk for heart disease
increases. For both men and women, heart disease is the number
one cause of death. (Source: excerpt from CHECK YOUR CHOLESTEROL AND HEART DISEASE I Q: NHLBI)
NHLBI, High Blood Cholesterol What You Need to Know: NHLBI (Excerpt)
High blood cholesterol itself does not cause symptoms, so many people are
unaware that their cholesterol level is too high. It is important to find out
what your cholesterol numbers are because lowering cholesterol levels that are
too high lessens the risk for developing heart disease and reduces the chance of
a heart attack or dying of heart disease, even if you already have it.
Cholesterol lowering is important for everyone--younger, middle age, and older
adults; women and men; and people with or without heart disease. (Source: excerpt from NHLBI, High Blood Cholesterol What You Need to Know: NHLBI)
