MEDICAL NOTES

Check your cholesterol level

Knowing the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood is sensible. Too much of these fats increases the risk of a heart attack.

Cholesterol comes in two main forms - high density and low density (HDL and LDL). HDL is ‘good’ cholesterol and may have a protective effect. But too much LDL is serious matter and should be reduced.

This may require a change in diet, increased exercise, or medication. Talk to the doctor about a cholesterol test.
