Watch Your Cholesterol Even If You're Healthy

Even if you're fine, you should not forget to watch your cholesterol regularly to prevent risk for ischemic stroke, doctors// in Boston tell healthy women.

A high level of cholesterol (a soft, waxy substance found among lipids in the bloodstream) in the blood is a major risk factor for coronary heart disease that leads to heart attack.

Tobias Kurth of Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, and other researchers studied 27,937 of these women aged 45 years or older who had provided baseline blood samples, reported the health portal Medscape.

High levels of total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C), and other lipid levels are significantly associated with an increased risk for ischemic stroke even in women who are otherwise healthy, the study found.

"We did not look at people with high risk for cardiovascular disease or with existing cardiovascular disease, but at women who were apparently healthy," Kurth said.

"That means even when you're fine, you should really watch your cholesterol, and by approaching low cholesterol levels, you may prevent risk for ischemic stroke," the researchers said in their report that appeared in the journal Neurology.
