How to Reduce Bad Cholesterol

How to Reduce Bad Cholesterol

Watch more Healthy Eating videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/432350-How-to-Reduce-Bad-Cholesterol A little attention to detail never hurt anyone and may have benefits if it involves monitoring what you put in your body. Reduce your bad cholesterol through simple disciplined measures that are proven to help. Step 1: Disrupt fat with exercise Use exercise to naturally disrupt the metabolism of fat. Eating less helps, but excess body fat will keep cholesterol up until you actually lose pounds by breaking a sweat. Moderate walking and workouts five days a week can raise good cholesterol by 10 percent. Tip The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health suggests everyone 20 and over should check their levels of bad cholesterol every five years. Step 2: Relax and reflect Relax and reflect periodically, rather than give in to the high tension that constricts arteries and raises blood pressure. If you're constantly stressing out, consider making some long-term changes that will eliminate some of your stres for good. Step 3: Get good greens Drink green tea, full of compounds that can help lower bad cholesterol. Eat leafy greens as well, for soluble fiber that sponges up cholesterol in the digestive tract. Step 4: Consume nuts Consume nuts instead of cheese, meat, or croutons in salads. According to the Food and Drug Administration, a daily handful of 42.5 grams of nuts may reduce cholesterol and the risk of heart disease. Step 5: Substitute fish Substitute meat with fish twice or three times weekly. Consuming fish can profoundly lower cholesterol and triglycerides. Step 6: Choose smart fats Select smart fats for your diet, substituting canola or olive oils for vegetable oil, butter, margarine, lard, or shortening. It's not merely fats, but the kind of fats you eat, that make the difference. Tip Eggs do not drastically increase cholesterol. Step 7: Take drugs to lower cholesterol Take a cholesterol-lowering drug if you have evident cardiovascular risks. Beforehand, consider alternatives like niacin, bile acid resins, and fibrates. Step 8: Commit to win Resolve to make changes, and live a healthy lifestyle. It's your life -- only you can make the changes to lower your bad cholesterol. Did You Know? In 2010, researchers identified nearly 100 gene variants possibly linked to as much as one third of hereditary factors influencing cholesterol production.

Rethinking 'Good' Cholesterol; PSA Test Debate

Rethinking 'Good' Cholesterol; PSA Test Debate

This is the VOA Special English Health Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish A study has raised questions about a widely held belief involving cholesterol. The belief is that high levels of so-called good cholesterol in the blood can reduce the risk of a heart attack. The medical name for "good" cholesterol is high-density lipoprotein, or HDL. Doctors commonly believe it reduces the risk of heart attack by removing fatty deposits that can block the flow of blood in the arteries of the heart. But Dr. Sekar Kathiresan at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston says the effects of high HDL have never been proven. He says the new study that he and other researchers did suggests that HDL cholesterol does not affect the risk of heart attack. He thinks the study has now broken "the major assumption over the last thirty years, that if you raise HDL cholesterol, the risk for heart disease will be lowered."The researchers say about four percent of people have a genetic variant, a change, that gives them a naturally high level of HDL. The study found that those who were genetically "programmed" to have higher HDL levels were just as likely to suffer heart attacks as those who were not. A second analysis looked at fourteen gene variants that increase good cholesterol. Dr. Kathiresan says people with the most variants had no more protection against heart attacks than anyone else. But he says there is no dispute about low-density lipoprotein, or LDL. LDL, the so-called bad cholesterol, causes a buildup of fatty substances inside arteries and increases the risk of heart attack. The findings appear in the Lancet medical journal. Another widely held medical belief has also come into question recently. For years, men over the age of forty have been told to get a simple blood test to see if they have prostate cancer. Now, experts on a government committee are advising them not to. Dr. Virginia Moyer heads the United States Preventive Services Task Force. She says, "Close to two-thirds of older men have prostate cancer and yet the huge majority of them never have a problem from it in their lifetime." The task force examined two large studies before deciding that treating the cancer found by the PSA test can do more harm than good. Effects of the treatment can include a loss of sexual ability and bladder control, as well as other problems including heart attacks. Some doctors support the findings of the task force, but others disagree. Urologist Deepak Kapoor says in about twenty years of PSA testing, death rates for prostate cancer have dropped by thirty-eight percent. For VOA Special English, I'm Carolyn Presutti.

Lipoproteins: Good and Bad Cholesterol

Lipoproteins: Good and Bad Cholesterol

Learn all about Low-Density Lipoproteins (LDL), the so-called “bad” cholesterol, and High-Density Lipoproteins (HDL) the “good” cholesterol. This video is just one of many that offers health and wellness tips at http://bit.ly/2j1jiqn Amy Wixted, Wellness and Education Manager at The Villages Health®, explains that lipoproteins are fat (lipids) on the inside, and proteins on the outside that capture cholesterol and carry it around our bodies. Cholesterol is a waxy, fatty substance and blood is a watery substance. Do oil and water mix? No. So lipoproteins act as messengers by carrying the cholesterol to other parts of the body. Think of them as like little sausages, the doggy treats. The waxy, fatty cholesterol is in the middle, and is surrounded by protein on the outside. There are two types of lipoproteins: Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL) and High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL). The majority of cholesterol, about 2/3 to 3/4 of your total cholesterol in your body, is made up of LDL or your bad cholesterol. Your LDL carries cholesterol out to different cells of your body (including arteries that supply blood to the heart and brain). But having too much of it can cause plaque build-up and complications like heart disease, stroke, peripheral vascular disease and amputations, so you don’t want high levels of it. When you think of LDL, the L should stand for low. You also have High-Density Lipoproteins, or HDL. This is your good cholesterol, and the one you want to be as high as possible. That’s what the H is for. Your HDL carries cholesterol away; taking it back to the liver where it is processed and removed from your body. Like a vacuum cleaner, it pulls the cholesterol out and removes it. About 1/4 to 1/3 of your total cholesterol is made up of HDL, and having high levels of it is protective.
