There are categories of people who are at risk for disease from cholesterol. For each of these groups, the limit of the permissible level of cholesterol is different. Therapist Irina Yartseva told “Evening Moscow” about this.
“People who do not have cardiovascular and diabetic diseases, as well as those who lead an active lifestyle, play sports and do not smoke, can increase cholesterol levels by up to six units,” explained the doctor.
Those who have cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or smoke cigarettes for a long time are at risk.
“For them, it is recommended to keep the cholesterol level no higher than five units, if its level rises, then therapy is prescribed to the person,” Yartseva warned.
Another category is people who have already suffered from cardiovascular diseases: heart attacks, strokes, heart surgery or severe forms of diabetes, the doctor added.
The therapist also called deadly diseases that cause high cholesterol.
And the endocrinologist Olga Pavlova said that it harms the heart with diabetes. The first and main factor that affects the condition of the heart is the level of sugar in the blood. It also affects high cholesterol levels.
