馃挕 "High cholesterol is one of the most studied modifiable cardiovascular risk factors in recent decades. It is essentially composed of a set of lipids and their proteins called: LDL (low-density lipoprotein), HDL (high-density lipoprotein), and triglycerides. The increase, primarily in low-density proteins, known in blood tests馃└ as "LDL," is one of the main culprits of arterial blockages. Simply put, LDL over the years, along with elevated triglycerides (among others), slowly obstructs the arteries of the heart 馃挃, brain 馃, kidneys, among others. This leads to an increase in cardiovascular events, hospitalizations 馃彞, studies (echocardiograms, angiographies), and interventions (angioplasties or cardiac surgery - coronary bypass). Early treatment, detected through preventive cardiology check-ups, allows timely medication馃┖ (mainly with statins as the first step) and significantly prevents/delays the development of this disease, which is the leading cause of death worldwide and also in Mexico; atherosclerosis, the main cause behind cardiovascular disease.
