High Cholesterol occurs when a high amount of unhealthy cholesterol dissolves in blood. For the healthy functioning of the body, you need an optimal quantity of cholesterol and when this amount crosses the threshold trouble occurs. There is no specific symptom for high cholesterol until you get it tested. For controlling the cholesterol level in the body, we at Advanced Medical Care, recommend a change of lifestyle and diet mixed with appropriate medication.
