Hypercholesterolaemia

HighCholesterolCholesterol is produced in the body, mainly in the liver, and is an important part of cell membrane function, vitamin D and bile acid production. High levels of ‘bad cholesterol’ (LDL) are associated with an increased risk of coronary artery disease but increased levels of the ‘good cholesterol’ (HDL) are protective against coronary artery disease. If patients are detected to have a high cholesterol or LDL they will need careful risk assessment to determine if medical therapy with statins is indicated on top of lifestyle measures.
