Cholesterol Education Month

Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance found in your body and many foods. Your body needs cholesterol to function normally and makes all that you need. Too much cholesterol can build up in your arteries. After a while, these deposits narrow your arteries, putting you at risk for heart disease and stroke.

High cholesterol usually doesn't have any symptoms. As a result, many people do not know that their cholesterol levels are too high. However, your doctor can do a simple blood test to check your cholesterol. High cholesterol can be controlled through lifestyle changes or if it's not enough, through medications.
