Do you know what Cholesterol is? Cholesterol is a substance that is made in the liver and is vital to human life. High cholesterol is one of the major controllable risk factors for many heart related diseases. High cholesterol coupled with smoking, high blood pressure or diabetes can increase your risk even more. Cholesterol levels can be affected by age, gender, family health history and diet.
Here are some great ways you can help maintain healthy levels:

- Manage your weight
- Exercise regularly
- Stop smoking

These symptoms may include: muscle aches, tenderness, or weakness, headaches, difficulty sleeping, flushing of the skin, drowsiness, dizziness, nausea/vomiting, abdominal cramping or pain, bloating/gas, diarrhea, constipation or rashes.
