Health professionals across all areas are working closely with the media to improve information and public advice guidelines, whether it is recommendation for better nutrition and exercise or monitoring cholesterol levels.

Information on high cholesterol from www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk. High cholesterol is not a disease in itself, but it is linked to serious conditions, such as cardiovascular conditions (disease of the heart and blood vessels), angina, stroke, and mini stroke, known as transient ischaemic attack (TIA). A high level of cholesterol in your blood, together with a high level of triglycerides, can increase your risk of developing coronary heart disease. Coronary heart disease is caused by narrowing of the arteries that supply the heart with blood. This narrowing of the arteries is called atherosclerosis. Fatty deposits, such as cholesterol, cellular waste products, calcium and other substances build up in the inner lining of an artery. This build up, known as plaque, usually affects small and medium sized arteries. The flow of blood through the arteries is restricted as the inside diameter is reduced. Blood clots, which often happen in the coronary arteries during a heart attack, are more likely to develop when arterial walls are roughened by the build up of fatty deposits. A high cholesterol level may only be revealed if you have symptoms of atherosclerosis. These can include: Angina, caused by narrowed coronary arteries in the heart. Leg pain on exercising, due to narrowing of the arteries that supply the lower limbs. Blood clots and ruptured blood vessels, which can result in a stroke or mini-stroke (transient ischaemic attack (TIA). Ruptured plaques, which can lead to a blood clot forming in one of the arteries delivering blood to the heart (coronary thrombosis), and may lead to heart failure if a significant amount of heart muscle is damaged.
