The doctor told how to control cholesterol after 50 years

According to the expert, cholesterol can manifest itself at any age, depending on the lifestyle and food culture, but after 50 years it becomes really life-threatening. High cholesterol is caused by foods that are too high in saturated and trans fats. One symptom may be sudden numbness and weakness in the arms or legs. This is because cholesterol builds up plaque in blood vessels that blocks blood flow to the heart and brain, which in turn can lead to heart attack or stroke.

The indicators at which you need to tackle your health are “moderately high” cholesterol in the range of 5-6 mmol / l, but if it is 7 mmol / l or higher, then it is considered life-threatening.

Prevention consists of physical activity – exercise several times a week, walking a sufficient distance. Diet changes are equally important: an increase in the diet of soluble fiber, such as oatmeal, and foods made from oatmeal, nuts and seeds, as well as fruits that can be eaten, such as apples, pears and berries.
