Complications of High Blood Cholesterol

High level of bad cholesterol in our bloodstream may cause dangerous diseases like atherosclerosis through deposition of fatty material on the inner walls of arteries. These deposits (plaques) can reduce blood flow, which can cause complications, such as:

Atherosclerosis

High blood cholesterol increases the risk of atherosclerosis – the condition in which plaque starts to form in arteries. When arteries get clogged, it affects the oxygen-rich blood flow to our heart, brain and other vital parts of our body.

CHEST-PAIN-circlecare

Chest pain

If the arteries that supply your heart with blood (coronary arteries) are affected, you may have chest pain (angina) and other symptoms of coronary artery disease.

W-Complication-Heart-Attack

Heart attack

If plaques tear or rupture, a blood clot may form at the plaque-rupture site — blocking the flow of blood or breaking free and plugging an artery downstream. If blood flow to part of your heart stops, you’ll have a heart attack.

W-Complication-Stroke

Stroke

Similar to a heart attack, if a blood clot blocks blood flow to part of your brain, a stroke will occur.

High blood pressure

High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure or hypertension and high cholesterol also are directly linked to each other. When the arteries become hardened and narrowed due to the cholesterol plaque buildup, the heart has to work much harder to pump blood through them.

In order to avoid such health complications, one has to maintain a healthy diet and active lifestyle. If you are looking for more info, tips and hacks on cholesterol management, download CircleCare App now!
