Is your Cholesterol Levels Lethal or Heroic?

blood_testCholesterol is a fatty substance that exists in the outer layer of every cell in your body, maintaining each cell’s membrane.  It is involved in the production of sex hormones, as well as hormones released by your adrenal glands.  It insulates nerve fibers.  It is significant in the metabolism of certain vitamins, including A, D, and E.  It is essential to your body.  Cholesterol is carried through the blood stream combined with a protein.  The structure of the cholesterol with the protein is a molecule called a lipoprotein.  There are two main types of lipoproteins, both of which, you will recognize on your lab report of cholesterol numbers as Low Density Lipoprotein and High Density Lipoprotein, or LDL and HDL.  One is lethal and one is a hero.  You want your lethal one to be as low as possible and your hero one to be as high as possible.  Your cholesterol numbers are like warning lights to your body.
