How to Detect High Cholesterol Level

Article Category: Medical Business

Author Name: Kenn Fong

A high low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or bad cholesterol, in the body can lead to a number of serious illnesses. Usually, high cholesterol level can cause the buildup of plaque in the arterial walls leading to clots which results to heart attacks and stroke. It can cause different illnesses as well such as:

- Hypertension – Due to the buildup of cholesterol plaque, the blood vessels become narrow. This causes the heart to exert more pressure in order to circulate the blood around the body. Hypertension (or high blood pressure) can potentially result to heart disease.

- Peripheral Vascular disease – Due to the plaque buildup in the arteries, blood circulation is constrained. This improper circulation can also affect the legs and feet.

- Pancreatitis – Although uncommon, a high amount of triglyceride (another form of cholesterol) in the body could lead to pancreatitis.

Unfortunately, the symptoms of high cholesterol are hard to detect. People with high cholesterol feel fairly similar as people with normal level of cholesterol. Unlike illnesses such as hypertension or diabetes, there are very few tell tale signs of high cholesterol. However, some people do experience change in their body when they have an elevated level of LDL. Here are some symptoms of high cholesterol.

- Arcus Senilis – It is the development of a white or gray crescent discoloration in the cornea.

- Xanthoma – Yellowish deposits of cholesterol in the skin and tendons all over the body, usually in the hands.

- Xanthelasma – Yellowish deposits of cholesterol in the skin, usually around the eyelids. These patches usually don't cause any discomfort and can be removed. This condition is sometimes hereditary and is not always linked to high cholesterol.

- Illnesses linked with high cholesterol – Since hypertension, stroke, heart attack etc. are associated with high cholesterol, it can be viewed as a symptom. However, the damage has already been done.

Because the symptoms of high cholesterol can be mixed up with other illnesses, the only real way to detect high cholesterol is through a blood test. The procedure is very simple, similar to all other blood testing. During a cholesterol test, a blood sample is obtained from the arm tied with a tourniquet. A small amount of blood is then taken with a syringe and is then sent to the lab.

Before the examination, the patient is advised to fast. For 14 hours, eating and drinking any beverage, with the exception of water, is prohibited. It is also prohibited to drink any type or amount of alcohol 48 hours prior to the blood testing. Some types of medicine are also prohibited before the blood testing. This is done to ensure that the cholesterol levels are examined precisely without the influence of the patient's diet or medication. The results are usually given minutes after the examination has taken place.

LDL is not the only type of cholesterol that will be analyzed during the test; triglyceride and HDL are also measured. The American Heart Institute has established a guideline to determine the acceptable amount of cholesterol.

Total Cholesterol:
- Below 200 mg/dl – Acceptable
- 200 - 239 – Borderline
- 240 and above – High cholesterol

- Below 100 mg/dl – Recommended
- 100 – 129 – Still acceptable
- 130 – 159 – Borderline
- 160 – 189 – High
- 190 and above – Very high
