High cholesterol has no real symptoms – and unlike obesity, it can’t be diagnosed just by looking. You can be short and fat with a normal level, or tall and skinny with a high level. The only way to find out is a blood test. This should be done by everyone aged over 40, especially if there is a family history of heart disease.


Eating things high in saturated fat, such as butter and cream, and processed meat like sausages and fast food, raises cholesterol. However, high levels can also run in families, regardless of diet.


We all need some cholesterol circulating in our blood, because it helps the body’s cells function properly. But the trouble is, it comes in two distinct forms – the bad and the good. It’s the LDL, the bad cholesterol, that you should worry about, that’s the one that can build up on the walls of your arteries, narrowing them to the extent that blood can’t get through and thereby increases the risk of a heart attack.


HDL, meanwhile, is dubbed good cholesterol because it helps Hoover up bad cholesterol from the blood before it can block arteries.
