High Cholesterol Levels
More than 16 percent of adults in the Western world have high cholesterol, doubling their risk of getting heart disease.
Many factors contribute to elevated cholesterol levels, including your weight, age, intake of fatty foods and family history. Your blood sugar levels also influence your cholesterol if you have high glucose.
Cholesterol is a substance with a waxy texture that is naturally found in all of your body cells. Cholesterol is necessary for hormone production, making vitamin D and properly digesting food.
Your body produces the substance, and you also take it in by eating certain foods.
High-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL) is beneficial because it carries cholesterol from other areas in your body to your liver for disposal. Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL) is bad because it builds up in your arteries. The build-up can eventually lead to dangerous blockages.
High blood sugar is a risk factor for high LDL cholesterol and low HDL cholesterol levels. Diabetes raises your risk of bad cholesterol readings, especially when the disease is uncontrolled and your blood sugar is habitually high. High glucose levels in the blood also damage your artery linings.
You can control your cholesterol levels, even if you have diabetes, by getting regular exercise, eating a healthy diet and taking cholesterol lowering medication if your doctor recommends it. Combine these efforts with careful management of your diabetes to keep your blood sugar levels down.
Lowering your bad cholesterol level through controlling your blood sugar and other methods, such as eating a low carbohydrate diet and exercising regularly, decreases your chance of developing angina or having a heart attack. Decreased LDL cholesterol slows down or stops the buildup of plaque in your arteries.
You have high blood sugar levels without knowing about the problem if you are pre-diabetic.
The condition causes you to have elevated blood glucose levels, even though the amount is not high enough to be considered full-blown diabetes.
The blood sugar still causes health problems such as increased risks of heart disease and stroke, and you have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes within 10 years unless you embark on a prevention program of weight loss, exercise and dietary changes.
