Cholesterol Levels Fever -

Cholesterol plays a major role in a person’s heart health. High blood cholesterol is a major risk factor for coronary heart disease and stroke. That’s why it’s important for all people to know their cholesterol level. They should also learn about their other risk factors for heart disease and stroke.

Total blood cholesterol is the most common measurement of blood cholesterol. It’s the number you receive as test results. Cholesterol is measured in milligrams per deciliter of blood (mg/dL).

Blood cholesterol for adults is classified by levels. Your healthcare provider must interpret your cholesterol numbers based on other risk factors such as age, gender, family history, race, smoking, high blood pressure, physical inactivity, obesity and diabetes.
