Risks of high cholesterol

  • High cholesterol usually refers to above-normal levels of LDL (low-density lipoprotein), the so-called bad cholesterol that can build up in your arteries and lead to heart disease.
  • Brain Stroke.
  • Peripheral vascular disease (PAD), which occurs when fatty deposits build up in arteries outside the heart and brain, most often in the legs and feet.
  • Type 2 diabetes.
  • High blood pressure, since the heart has to work harder to pump blood through clogged arteries.
