Cholesterol diet, healthy food for heart

What is cholesterol?

Cholesterol, a fatty substance produced by the liver and obtained through certain foods, plays a vital role in our body. But with over 40% of Australians struggling with high cholesterol levels, understanding the symptoms and risks is crucial. High cholesterol can present warning signs like chest pain and heart palpitations, or be asymptomatic, increasing the risk of deadly heart disease and stroke.

Through our easy consultations, we tailor strategies to your unique health profile. From dietary guidance to medications, we work with you to develop a plan that suits your lifestyle, ensuring a proactive approach to heart health.

Frequently Asked Questions

Cholesterol is a fatty substance in your blood. While it’s crucial for various bodily functions, high levels can increase the risk of heart disease.

Risk factors include a diet high in saturated and trans fats, a sedentary lifestyle, smoking, genetics, and certain medical conditions. Australians are encouraged to adopt heart-healthy habits to manage their cholesterol levels.

Lifestyle changes such as eating a heart-healthy diet, exercising regularly, quitting smoking, and reducing alcohol intake can help lower cholesterol levels. Discuss these options with a healthcare professional for personalised guidance.

Medication may be recommended if lifestyle changes alone aren’t sufficient to lower your cholesterol to a safe level, especially if you have a history of heart disease or other risk factors. Consult a HelloGP doctor for an assessment and tailored advice.
