Winters may be the cause of your raised cholesterol levels

New Delhi, November 23, 2016: Blood lipid levels may exhibit mild seasonal variation with a peak in total cholesterol level in the winter and a drop in the summer. The variation can be up to 5 mg/dL. 
 
Speaking about the importance of keeping cholesterol levels under control, Padma Shri Awardee Dr. KK Aggarwal -President HCFI and National President Elect IMA said, "Blood cholesterol levels are closely related to increased risks of getting heart disease. The higher your blood cholesterol level, the greater your risk for developing heart disease or having a heart attack. Heart disease is one of the leading killers of women and men in the India. For every 10% drop in your cholesterol level, your heart attack risk falls by 20% to 30%. It is thus important to raise awareness about detection of high cholesterol, management and prevention."
