Know more about cholesterol

Hong Kong people dine out quite often. There is no obvious symptom for having excessive cholesterol so the problems won’t be detected until it actually occurs. There are good and bad cholesterols. Bad cholesterol is the one likely to accumulate in the blood vessel wall, which is called Low density lipoprotein LDL (bad cholesterol). It may cause the blood vessel to become narrow, slow down blood flow and increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Good cholesterol is called high density lipoprotein HDL (good cholesterol), which helps to remove excess cholesterol in blood. The ideal cholesterol level is shown below. 

Total Cholesterol

less than 5.2 mmol/L

Low-density Lipoprotein ( Bad Cholesterol)

less than 2.6 mmol/L

High-density lipoprotein (Good Cholesterol) 

more than 1 mmol/L
