Do you have high cholesterol? Have questions about it? Take this quiz to learn more.
Cholesterol is a type of fat found in your blood. Eating foods high in saturated fat can raise your blood cholesterol level. When your cholesterol level is high, it builds up in your arteries, which can make it harder for blood to pass through from your heart. When blood can’t pass through, it makes the heart work harder than it should. This increases your risk for heart attacks and strokes.
If your doctor has diagnosed you with high cholesterol, there are steps you can take to manage this condition and live healthy.
Take this quiz now to see how much you know about cholesterol, and what you can do to protect your health.
