Living with High Cholesterol
I have cholesterol issues. Are there other conditions I should pay special attention to?Indeed, other pathologic conditions can interplay with hypercholesterolemia, and cause even further damage. Such comorbid conditions include:
- Type 2 diabetes: patients with type 2 diabetes often have lower HDL cholesterol levels and elevated triglyceride and LDL cholesterol levels, which raises the risk for heart disease and stroke.
- Obesity. Obesity is associated with elevated levels of triglycerides and LDL cholesterol, and lower HDL cholesterol levels.1
