Medical advice

High cholesterol

High cholesterol occurs when the level of lipids in your body becomes too high. Lipids are fatty cells made by the liver which affect the arteries and when you have high cholesterol the narrowing of the arteries by these lipids may lead to severe consequences such as heart attacks or (mini) strokes which may cause permanent damage or may even be fatal.

Treating high cholesterol with Zocor

Zocor is a very regular treatment method for high cholesterol. Zocor decreases the amount of lipids produced by the body thereby lowering the bad cholesterol, called LDL. At the same time the production of the good HDL cholesterol is promoted. Studies indicate that exact balance between HDL and LDL cholesterol is crucial if you develop problems such as high blood press and other cardiovascular diseases.
