The body needs cholesterol to function properly; high cholesterol, however, can cause health problems. It can cause a condition called atherosclerosis, the effects of which include coronary heart disease, angina, and stroke. Although the causes of increased cholesterol are often unknown, risk factors include diet, weight, and heredity. If lifestyle changes alone are not enough, medication may be necessary to lower cholesterol.
However, please do check with a Cardiologist who would be the best person to address your question.
