Cardiovascular Diseases and Metabolic Risk

Presence of high level of cholesterol in the blood may increase risk of cardiovascular disease, heart attack and stroke. If the cholesterol is high, the excess oily substance will stick to the walls of the arteries, and eventually hardens, forming a type of plaque that damages the arteries. They become narrowed and lose their elasticity. This can contribute to the development of high blood pressure or hypertension, which can cause more damage to the blood vessels. The ultimate danger is that the arteries will become so narrowed that a blood clot will block blood flow, causing a severe cardiovascular event. Obesity, along with the high waist circumference and high body mass index, is an independent risk factor for coronary heart disease (CHD) and diabetes.
