 What are the risks with high cholesterol?

Does high cholestrol cause high blood pressure?

Most of the time yes, they are pretty much linked.
If you have one, you usually have the other.

Untreated hypercholesterolemia can, over time, contribute to the development of coronary artery disease (CAD). CAD is often referred to as "hardening of the arteries" which can cause high blood pressure.

It can if it get bad enough and starts clogging your arteries.

There are some excellent answer to your question.

Everyone is in agreement over the cholesterol found in the brain and the cells, so we'll just focus on the stuff found in the blood, the so-called "bad" cholesterol.

The body will not produce anything that is harmful to it - and this includes cholesterol.

Cholesterol can exist with or without high blood pressure. It doesn't cause high blood pressure, but it's caused by the same thing - dehydration.

In short, every cell in the body needs important nutrients for proper function. Water and salt deliver these nutrients. Not drinking enough water causes the body to ration water for important organs such as the brain, liver, etc. To try and keep the cells hydrated, the body will often borrow water from the blood (blood is 94% water and salt). This causes the arteries to constrict and the blood to thicken - which results in the heart having to increase pressure to pump the blood. Ergo, high blood pressure.

The thickened blood often becomes acidic with the toxins that salt removes from the cells. As it is pumped through the arteries, it causes tiny cuts and abrasions to the walls which can peel off and cause an embolism in the brain or other organ. To prevent this, the body produces cholesterol to act like a patch or band-aid to protect the damaged areas until they can be repaired.

Unfortunately, the medical profession doesn't recognize dehydration as a cause of health problems. So, in the case of high blood pressure, they claim that excess salt causes high blood pressure - it doesn't. What they see as "excess" salt is just the salt that became concentrated when the water was borrowed from the blood because of dehydration. The high blood pressure is the result of having to pump thickened blood through narrower arteries - this, too, is caused by dehydration.

Following the doctor's advice to quit eating salt is compounding the problem. Not only are you water deficient, but now, your salt deficient, as well. It's little wonder medication is needed to keep the blood pressure stabilized.

As to the cholesterol, again, doctors don't recognize dehydration as the cause of health problems, so as the dehydration continues, so does the damage caused by the acidic blood. As long as the damage is being done, the body will continue to produce more and more cholesterol.

It's too bad that what is designed to be good for you (cholesterol) builds up until it the opposite affect, simply because doctors don't recognize dehydration as causing health problems.

Actually, doctors DO recognize dehydration as the cause of health problems - but only when they insert an IV needle in your arm to treat/prevent it - at a cost of around $385. But they won't instruct you on how to treat/prevent health problems by doing the same thing at home (orally, not intravenously). The reason is, there's no profit in prescribing water.

The fix for both high (and low) blood pressure and high levels of cholesterol is the same - increase your water and salt intake. Correct the dehydration and maintain a healthy water level.


High blood cholesterol is an invisible danger and its appropriately called "the silent killer".
Having high blood cholesterol level can end up in major health problems if not treated.

Cholesterol is usually naturally present in cell walls or membranes everywhere in the body, including the brain, nerves, muscles, skin, liver, intestines, and heart.
Cholesterol is used by the body to produce many hormones, vitamin D, and the bile acids that help to digest fat.
Though cholesterol is necessary for our body, but it takes only a small amount of it in the blood to meet the body requirements.

In fact, the higher the blood cholesterol level, the higher the risk for developing a heart disease. If you do not know why cholesterol causes heart disease, let me tell you.
When there is too much cholesterol present in our blood, it builds up in the arterial walls.
After a while, this build up causes the arteries to harden. In effect, arteries become narrower and blood flow to the heart is being blocked.
Oxygen is being carried by the blood to the heart, and if blood that carries oxygen cannot reach our heart, we may feel chest pain.
If the supply of the blood is totally cut off to a portion of the heart by blockage, this will result to heart attack or stroke.
Bassically the bad cholesterol blocks the passageway to the heart.

High blood cholesterol is a risk factor for atherosclerosis and hypertension.
Possible complications of high cholesterol include:
* Atherosclerosis
* Coronary artery disease.
* Stroke.
* Heart attack or death
Possible complications of high triglycerides include:
* Pancreatitis
Adopt DASH diet (Mediterranean diet). Eat a low-cholesterol, low-fat diet, which includes cottage cheese, fat-free milk, fish, vegetables, poultry, and egg whites. Use monounsaturated oils such as olive, peanut, and canola oils or polyunsaturated oils such as corn, safflower, soy, sunflower, cottonseed, and soybean oils. Avoid foods with excess fat in them such as meat (especially liver and fatty meat), egg yolks, whole milk, cream, butter, shortening, pastries, cakes, cookies, gravy, peanut butter, chocolate, olives, potato chips, coconut, cheese (other than cottage cheese), coconut oil, palm oil, and fried foods.

High cholestrol builds plaque in the arteries. It makes blood more difficult to flow through arteries causing blood pressure to increase. The heart has to work so much harder to supply the body in rich nutrients in the blood, along with o2 ! There are different ways cholestrol is elevated, by familial means or by your nutritional sources or both. Eat healthy foods, excercise daily and maintain a good cardiac workout. Seek medical advice as always!
