Symptoms Of High Cholesterol

Symptoms of high cholesterol often go by unnoticed by the sufferer or those around him. Normally high cholesterol is confirmed by a blood test, not by exterior examination.

It is often assumed that an overweight person will also be suffering from high cholesterol however this is not always the case.

Symptoms of High Cholesterol are more likely to be symptoms of a more serious illness which is caused by the high levels of bad cholesterol in the body.

For example, stroke, coronary heart disease and peripheral vascular disease can all be caused by high cholesterol and will display symptoms of their own.

Coronary disease is also known as angina. Symptoms of this are most often just chest pain or a tightening or pressure in the chest. All instances of this feeling should be an indication that the person needs to seek immediate medical treatment.

This sort of chest feeling is actually a symptom of coronary disease which can be caused by high cholesterol rather than it being a symptom of high cholesterol itself.

A stroke can display such symptoms as nausea, vomiting, fever, confusion and dizziness. Again, these symptoms are of the disease itself which can be a result of high cholesterol levels.

Most people only find out they have high cholesterol after a routine blood test. It is important not to find out too late, therefore regular testing is advised so that your high cholesterol may be detected very early on, allowing for best treatment and recovery options.

Symptoms of high cholesterol, as explained in this article, are more often than not, undetectable.

Of course, you can ensure your cholesterol does not increase simply by sticking to a healthy diet and exercising regularly.
