In addition to medicines and folk remedies aimed at active treatment of hypercholesterolemia, there is a whole list of food additives that promote, but to a lesser degree of cholesterol reduction. Among them:
1 Nicotinic acid (niacin). Vitamin taking an active part in the formation of the immune system and strengthen the walls of blood vessels. The use of this vitamin must necessarily take place under the supervision of the attending physician. Overdose patient threatens a sharp drop in blood pressure, increases the production of gastric juice. The dosage of the component is made by the doctor individually for each patient. Begin to use additives with small doses, gradually increasing the volume of consumption in order to avoid negative consequences.
In food diet with reduced levels of blood cholesterol should adhere to certain rules.
Enter 1 in the diet of saturated fats in reasonable quantities. The brightest representatives of having a part of these fats – is butter, hard cheese, mackerel.
2 Turn on the menu dishes made with beef by-products such as the brain, liver, kidneys. They include a fairly large amount of cholesterol – to 2 grams per 100 grams.
3 Eat more greens (parsley, dill, cilantro), as it is rich in vitamin C, which is to a certain extent vitamin contributes to the normalization of cholesterol metabolism.
The aim of dietary food at an elevated level of cholesterol in the blood – a conclusion from the body of excess “bad” cholesterol and prevention of atherosclerotic pathologies. The assigned task is carried out with the help of eating a specific set of products.
The main principle of the diet is the reduction or suspension of fatty foods, foods containing saturated fatty acids, as well as products rich in cholesterol. It is also recommended to reduce the intake of salt, animal fats to replace the plant.
To begin, the doctor performs an external examination of the patient finds it disturbing symptoms, the duration of their course, the duration of occurrence, intensity of development, and so on. Be sure to set bad habits of the patient. If there is reasonable suspicion to raise the level of cholesterol in the blood to diagnose disease in a medical institution you will necessarily be asked to take the following laboratory tests:
Long-term studies the emergence and manifestation of cholesterol in the human body have allowed scientists to identify a category of persons who are most prone to an increase in the amount of cholesterol in the blood. In the so-called risk group composed of the following representatives:
- People suffering from overweight. People with impaired weight ratio of “good” and “bad” cholesterol, at what “bad” prevails.
- People who eat a lot of fat. Here it should be noted that the major contributing factor to increase blood cholesterol is a food. Large amounts of fat in the diet is not indicating the presence of cholesterol in it. For example, meat and liver are almost not contain fat, but marked with a very high cholesterol levels. And yet, talking about raising the level of cholesterol in the body, we are talking about the need to reject fatty foods as cholesterol remarkably soluble in fat, and as such is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream.
Traditional medicine has a lot of recipes for the treatment and prevention of a vast variety of diseases, including hypercholesterolemia and hypocholesterolemia.
In the first place, in violation of cholesterol in the blood, traditional medicine recommends a diet, the main component of which is a product with a high content of polyunsaturated fats Omega-3, Omega-9 and monounsaturated fats. For example, useful is eating at least 100 grams of sea fish (mackerel or tuna) two or three times a week. Not be amiss in a diet of walnuts.
Great danger to the health and even the life of a person carries a lowering cholesterol in the blood. If we compare the mortality rates in hypercholesterolemia and hypocholesterolemia, then forced to note that low levels of cholesterol in the blood causes death in three to four times more often than the high level.
Deficiency of cholesterol in the human body can cause the emergence and development of one of the following diseases.
1 obesity or, conversely, dystrophy. With decreasing the amount of cholesterol in the body decreases the ability to assimilate fat and fat-soluble vitamins. As a result, fats or completely eliminated from the body in the stool, or else are stored as body fat.
Given the fact that very few people know about the benefits of cholesterol for a healthy and full life of the body – I admit that even fewer people are aware of the effect of various demographic factors on the level of cholesterol in the blood. And the influence they still have that something more and something less.
Thus, primarily cholesterol levels are very closely related with age. Thus, the rate of cholesterol in the blood increases in direct proportion to age. Norma cholesterol between the ages of 15 to 30 years, in principle, is around the same performance, do not differ significantly from each other. After 30 years, the norm is the increase in the level of cholesterol and, therefore, the optimal (safe), its concentration in the blood is also changing.
Cholesterol can be represented as a waxy, fat-like substance that is used in all body cells. Meanwhile the body compulsorily needs some amount of cholesterol synthesis relevant hormones, vitamin D, and substances which happens to digest food. To understand how high blood cholesterol have a special test that helps to know about cholesterol. Cholesterol travels through our body (blood flow) in the form of small packages called lipoproteins. These bags are made of lipids on the inside and on the outside of proteins. Continue reading
