Does having high cholesterol mean you have clogged arteries?
my cholesterol is considered high. my high cholesterol is hereditary because my diet is pretty healthy. I have always wondered and stupid me has never asked my dr. does it automatically mean you have clogged arteries. I worry because I do have small children and don't want to have a heart attack. I do take medicine,exercise and eat right. what are your chances of getting clogged arteries.

Most people have a little, how bad depends on how you treat yourself.

The fruit you eat and your blood pressure have a lot to do with it.

Many "clogs" are your bodies attempts to repair damage to arteries from high blood pressure, and other arterial irritants like cigarette smoke, alcohol, and trans fats.

Avoid fried foods and burgers, packaged foods with hydrogenated oils, minimize dairy products in your diet.

The higher your LDL count, the more possible oxidized LDL you have which is what makes things worse. More moderate exercise is important, as it helps the function of HDL to remove LDL from the blood stream.

If worried, get some moderate intensity exercise everyday, eat more colorful fruit throughout the day since they are high in anti-oxidants, and avoid things that get your adrenaline pumped. That's another artery irritant.

Very good Laurence. Never mentioned saturated fat, yea. Never mentioned drugs, yea.
You should mention that insulin and insulin resistance are much more important than cholesterol. In fact insulin is one of the most powerful artery irritants.
Not so sure about high blood pressure and HDL does not remove LDL, but a good answer
