What is Meant by Total Cholesterol?

Cholesterol is divided into good and bad, but these concepts are very general.

Cholesterol is one of the important substances in our body, which is also synthesized by our body, but we also get it with the food we consume. Let's see what total cholesterol is.

Cholesterol is a fat-based substance, which means it doesn't mix with the blood, because our blood is water-based.

The functions of cholesterol are to transport lipoproteins around the body, it helps build cell walls, it is also needed for the synthesis of bile acids in our intestines, which help with easier digestion, it helps the body to synthesize vitamin D and also help produce some hormones.

When cholesterol and triglycerides are high, it leads to chronic diseases such as coronary heart disease, which, in turn, is the cause of diabetes.

People with high cholesterol are generally advised to follow a healthy diet. Breakfast could be oatmeal, lunch could be roasted meat with salad and dinner could be fish and vegetable soup.
