Patient Education

  • High Cholesterol/patient Education Overview

    High cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia) is a “silent killer.” It is estimated that nearly one-quarter of the population has high cholesterol, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There are no symptoms or ominous signs that serve as a warning until it is too late. Left untreated, it can cause an increase in heart attacks, strokes, arterial narrowing and heart disease. This is why it is crucial to be screened for high cholesterol once every five years. Read more in this patient education guide.

    High cholesterol does run in families. However, the following can increase your risk of developing high cholesterol:

    1. Obesity
    2. Drinking alcohol excessively
    3. Hypertension
      (Damaged artery walls are vulnerable to attachment of fatty deposits)
    4. Diabetes (High blood sugar lowers HDL and raises LDL)
    5. Smoking (Damages blood vessels making them prey to cholesterol adherence)
    6. Lack of exercise (Raises LDL and lowers HDL)

    Though the danger of excess cholesterol has clearly been shown, there is an important function that cholesterol serves in our body. Cholesterol, a waxy substance similar to fat and made in the liver, is needed by the body to create hormones, Vitamin D and bile acids. However, an excess of the wrong type of cholesterol can increase your risk for stroke, heart disease, heart attacks and plaque formation in the arteries.

    There are two varieties of cholesterol: HDL (high density “good” lipoproteins) is considered the “good cholesterol” since it removes excess LDL from the bloodstream, protecting against heart disease. High levels reflect a healthy metabolic system.

    LDL (low density “bad” lipoproteins) is considered the “bad cholesterol” since it adheres to arterial walls, creating obstructions or narrowing which increases risk of cardiovascular problems. There is a link between high levels and arterial artherosclerosis (plaque building on arterial walls causing narrowing or obstruction).

    While triglycerides are not actually part of cholesterol, it is usually screened as part of the cholesterol panel since it also increases heart disease risk.

  • Health Tips
    Stay Active After Heart Attack Discuss with your doctor first Having a heart attack shouldn’t put an end to an active lifestyle. The American Heart Association offers these guidelines for when you resume exercise:
    • Exercise only if your doctor says it’s safe.
    • Begin each workout with a gentle warm-up and end with a cooldown.
      Monitor the intensity of your activity, making sure it’s within the recommended range.
    • Monitor your heart rate and blood pressure.
    • Be aware of warning signs that you’re pushing yourself too hard, including chest pain, light-headedness or feeling out of breath.
  • FIVE Medication-Free Strategies to help prevent heart disease.
    You can prevent heart disease by following a heart-healthy lifestyle.
    1. Don’t smoke or use tobacco: Smoking or using tobacco is one of the most significant risk factors for developing heart disease.
    2. Exercise for 30 minutes on most days of the week: Getting some regular, daily exercise can reduce your risk of fatal heart disease.
    3. Eat a heart-healthy diet: Eating a special diet called the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH: diet means eating foods that are low in fat, cholesterol and salt.) eating plan can help protect your heart.
    4. Maintain a healthy weight: As you put on weight in adulthood, your weight gain is mostly fat rather than muscle. This excess weight can lead to conditions that increase your chances of heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes.
    5. Get regular health screenings: High blood pressure and high cholesterol can damage your heart and blood vessels. Regular screening can tell you what your numbers are and whether you need to take action.
