[Music] if you or someone you know has been diagnosed with high cholesterol it’s important to understand what cholesterol is and why it’s important to keep it under control cholesterol is a fat like substance made by your liver and also comes from foods you intake that is then packaged into particles called lipoproteins your body needs cholesterol to make hormones vitamin D and a substance that helps you digest food called bile this video discusses two types of lipo proteins that carry cholesterol low-density lipoprotein or LDL cholesterol also known as bad cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein or HDL cholesterol also known as good cholesterol LDL travels through your bloodstream delivering cholesterol to the cells that need it if your body has too much LDL it can build up in the walls of your arteries LDL and other substances in your artery wall form a fatty deposit called plaque over time plaque can narrow the artery and reduce blood flow LDL carries cholesterol into the plaque this is why LDL is called the bad cholesterol a common place this plaque can build up is in your coronary arteries which are the blood vessels that feed your heart this plaque buildup causes coronary artery disease and increases your risk of a heart attack plaque buildup in other arteries such as the carotid arteries in your neck can reduce blood flow to your brain and increase the risk of a stroke your liver also makes high-density lipoprotein or HDL also known as the good cholesterol HDL helps remove excess cholesterol from your cells tissues and from plaque in your blood vessels this is why HDL is called the good cholesterol HDL returns the excess cholesterol to your liver which removes it from your body if after viewing this information you have questions about cholesterol or any medications you’ve been prescribed to help manage your high cholesterol speak with your health care provider it is important to take your medications as directed by your provider and report any side-effects you experience you

  1. Good news:
    All you Lipitor users rejoice!

    Cholesterol is finally officially removed from Naughty List. The US government has finally accepted that cholesterol is not a _nutrient of concern_. doing a U-turn on their warnings to us to stay away from high-cholesterol foods since the 1970s to avoid heart disease and clogged arteries.

    This means eggs, butter, full-fat dairy products, nuts, coconut oil and meat have now been classified as safe and have been officially removed from the nutrients of concern list.

    The US Department of Agriculture, which is responsible for updating the guidelines every five years, stated in its findings for 2015: "Previously, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommended that cholesterol intake be limited to no more than 300 mg/day.

    "The 2015 DGAC will not bring forward this recommendation because available evidence shows no appreciable relationship between consumption of dietary cholesterol and serum (blood) cholesterol, consistent with the AHA/ACC (American Heart Association / American College of Cardiology)

    The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee will, in response, no longer warn people against eating high-cholesterol foods and will instead focus on sugar as the main substance of dietary concern.

    US cardiologist Dr Steven Nissen said: _It's the right decision_. _We got the dietary guidelines wrong. They've been wrong for decades_."

    When we eat more foods rich in this compound, our bodies make less. If we deprive ourselves of foods high in cholesterol – such as eggs, butter, and liver – our body revs up.

    The Real Truth about Cholesterol. The majority of the cholesterol in you is produced by your liver. Your brain is primarily made up from cholesterol. It is essential for nerve cells to function.

    Cholesterol is the basis for the creation of all the steroid hormones, including estrogen, testosterone, and corticosteroids.

    High cholesterol in the body is a clear indication which shows the liver of the individual is in good health.

    Dr. George V. Mann M.D. associate director of the Framingham study for the incidence and prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and its risk factors states:
    Saturated fats and cholesterol in the diet are not the cause of coronary heart disease. That myth is the greatest deception of the century, perhaps of any century

    Cholesterol is the biggest medical scam of all time
    There is no such thing as bad Cholesterol

    So you can stop trying to change your Cholesterol level. Studies prove beyond a doubt, cholesterol doesn't cause heart disease and it won't stop a heart attack.

    The majority of people that have heart attacks have normal cholesterol levels.

    OUR BODY NEEDS 950 mg OF CHOLESTEROL FOR DAILY METABOLISM AND THE LIVER IS THE MAIN Producer. ONLY 15% OF CHOLESTEROL IS BEING DONATED BY THE FOOD WE EAT.

    If the fat content is less in our food we eat, our liver
    Got to work more to maintain the level at 950 mg.

    If the cholesterol level is high in our body, it shows the liver is working perfect.

    Experts say that there is nothing like LDL or HDL.
    …………..
    ….. *Cholesterol is not found to create block any where in human body*.

    Please share the recent facts about CHOLESTEROL

  2. Some of my skin has exploded on my knee and when I went to the doctor, he said that you went and asked to investigate the cholesterol.

  3. S.Cholesterol 155 mg/dl
    S. Triglycerides 186 mg/dl
    S. High-density lipoprotein (HDL) 31 mg/dl
    S. Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) 86.8 mg/dl

    Sir
    this is my mother test report for Lipid Profile
    Doctor has given amlodipine 5mg one in 24 hour
    If you give guideline i hope my mother will be ok
    Please help my mother

  4. LOL.and HDL.are Lipoproteins not cholesterol .it's function to transport cholesterol .LDL is not bad because body need it to transport cholesterol to the celles as require.
    only LDL danger if increases above normal reference range due to consuming a lot of unsaturated fat plus no physical activity.
    thak you from Yemen Aden.

  5. 1:35 This is "atherosclerosis" ? NO!!! There is no such thing in nature.
    1: 55 – This is "atherosclerosis"? NO!!! This is Cholesteric cylindrical plaque .

  6. As mentioned by so many. HDL and LDL are lipoproteins not cholesterol. Cholesterol is a sterol lipid alcohol. They are not the same thing. Also LDL does not produce a build up of fatty deposit within the arterial walls. LDL can pass through the epithelial lining and produce damage. This damage if not checked by HDL and immune response can lead to inflammation and the development of scar tissue. The build up of dead tissue and inflammation combined can lead to arterial blockage, heart disease etc. Medical Media – you are a disgrace

  7. So it's telling to eat high cholesterol foods instead of low cholesterol when these things are not even cholesterol.😖😞😟😝

  8. I think it will be most important If your video or content can be translate to another languages

  9. My doctor told me my cholesterol was high. I've had almost all of these
    symptoms for a couple years but no one mentioned cholesterol. They kept
    saying my heart is healthy. I started walking and jogging. I just
    stopped eating almost everything except vegetables … No dairy, meat, grains, or fruit. Then I discovered this treatment This ( check link below ) that reveals the one single ingredient responsible for all cholesterol plaque buildup in your arteries. And how to completely eliminate it without medications. t.co/sdkbb76iPa

  10. If we have excess Ldl then it is not a prblm..but if we have excess ldl level and along with that if we take carbohydrate in a large quantity then that csrbohydrate makes the ldl cholestrol bad..so the main culprit is carbohydrate not ldl

  11. The failure of a study that included 12,000 individuals on a trial of the cholesterol-lowering drug evacetrapib was reported in April 2016 by its manufacturer, Eli Lilly, after spending $90 million of research and development costs. “The drug, evacetrapib, was pulled after it FAILED TO PREVENT one single case of heart attack, stroke, by-pass surgery, or angina—even though it successfully doubled levels of ‘good’ cholesterol and lowered ‘bad’ cholesterol. These results were presented to the American College of Cardiology's in April 2016, recounting that researchers found that drug did not demonstrate any clinically meaningful cardiovascular risk benefit, despite a 130% increase in “good” cholesterol, or HDL cholesterol, and a 37% reduction in “bad” cholesterol, which is called LDL cholesterol. In the meantime, Pfizer pharmaceutical famously spent $800 million on a large trial combining its blockbuster statin Lipitor with torcetrapib, a CETP inhibitor; the combination of the two drugs was ultimately found to RAISE THE RISK OF DEATH and heart problems in patients. In 2012, Roche also scrapped development of its CETP inhibitor, dalcetrapib, due to a “lack of clinically meaningful efficacy.” “This is a a blow to the cholesterol theorists.” Evacetrapib is the third CETP failure. The first, torcetrapib, actually increased the rate of CARDIOVASCULAR DEATHS and disease despite lowering bad cholesterol levels. Conclusion: the use of Lipitor and torcetrapib, dalcetrapib, and evacetrapib increased the good cholesterol while decreasing the bad cholesterol, however; it surely resulted in an increase of cardiovascular deaths.

  12. This is total bullshit, plague in your arteries comes from that bad foods you eat, its all one cholesterol, not LDL OR HDL. Exercise keep trim, eat right, Do not smoke, if you drink Alcohol, keep it to a minimum. If you do this, you will be healthy, and dont be conned by doctors and their cholesterol Bull shit. Staten drugs are a scam by big pharma, and they will kill your brain and heart.

  13. You need cholesterol for homones and regulation of your blood, plus other beneficial bodily fuctions. The time you need to worry is when your Cholesterol is to low, not to high.

  14. Colesterolo isn’t harmful for our body..,, 75% of our cholesterol is produced from our metabolism…. Sugar+ constant high glicemia( high insulin) is the mean reason of arteries diseases and heart attack’s.

  15. I discovered the details in this cholesterol control guide https://t.co/FuExIn9JPJ very helpful. I`m enduring cholesterol, I learned the natural and other several cholesterol control remedies. I favor the natural way of treating it and I found out on this guide the solutions that work successfully.

  17. So why isn’t there any pill that contains the good cholesterol to absorb the bad ones? I mean it would take time but no difference in taking any other long term medication. That way your LDL is always in check.

  18. This is all wrong and dangerous. Nothing such as good and bad cholesterol. If you are riding in a blue truck vs a green truck, is one of you good and the other bad? And for Gods sake, don't take statins unless you are itching to get Alzheimer.
    Subintimal LDL deposits are a secondary consequence of a primary event that leads to intimal damage. That means , something causes the damage to the innermost layer of the blood vessel and most of the LDL just goes in there as a natural phenomenon.
    If you put hot water in a thin glass and the glass cracks and waater leaks out… is that the fault of the water? The heat caused the glass to crack and water does what it is supposed to…. move through the crack.
    Pasta my a#$$! Seriously? The foods taken by different geographic groups of people as a consequence of biological co-evolution ! Just because it works in an Italian does not mean it will work in you. Pasta for non-mediterranean people is death.
    Just stay with lean foods, mostly plant based, take only medium chain TGs and exercise ! Also dont retire !!! Just take things slower if you need to.

  21. HDL role : carrier,
    carry excess cholestero back to liver .
    LDL role :repairer &rebuilder ,
    Repairs damaged artery walls .
    Bad life style habbits (alcohol, cigarette etc ) cause damage to artery walls .then LDL comes n repair artery wall foaming plague to stop bleeding .
    If u stop bad habbits ,this plague carries away by HDL .back to normal artery.

  22. Sir plz Answer me . sir My total cholesterol 4.49//mmol/L Desirable -5.2 borderline High:5.2-6-2 . . . . . . . . .
    Triglycerides . . 1.26mmol/L .

    HDL. . . 0.86mmol/L

    LDL….. 3.72 mmol/L

    Answer me test is good ya not …

  23. This is very incomplete and thus misleading. Seems like a plug for the drug companies.
    1. There is no correlation between cholesterol levels and heart attacks. No research to show this at all.
    2. Small dense LDL particles are what lodge in arterialwalls and only then after the walls have been damaged. They (the LDL) are acting as a band aid. What was not said was how to prevent or handle the damage to the arterial walls in the first place: A) cut out the refined carbs B) take sufficient vitamin C to heal or prevent the lesion. The evidence is all over the place but drug companies and medicos ignore it.

  26. I was diagnosed of High LDL, thereby, I was experiencing of persistent "angina pectoris" or sever chest pain… The less than 30 minutes of chest pain caused me to breath difficulty and having with sweat in my body specially on my face area… Thus, I was rushed to the emergency hospital for treatment… My ECG and Chest Xray results were essentially normal… On the contrary, my LDL or bad cholesterol along with it are my URIC ACID, FBS were in high level, too. My cardiologist prescribed me to take a statin drug called "Simvastatin" for bad cholesterol… This is for one month only after which, I need to take another blood test to see if it lower my bad cholesterol… Let's take care of our heart ♥️… Our health as a general concerns. 👍

  35. Absolutely no mention of INFLAMMATION, highly likely the real cause of coronary heart disease! Inflammation is responsible for the damage caused to blood vessels such as the coronary arteries, the plaques that form are part of the repair process . In addition it is oxidised cholesterol that is the real bad form of cholesterol. Oxidised cholesterol can lead to an increase in inflammation. Research has shown that antioxidants from certain fruits and vegetables can reduce the oxidation process of cholesterol.

  36. Cholesterol that is too low may boost risk for hemorrhagic stroke
    Katie Bohn July 02, 2019
    UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Current guidelines recommend lowering cholesterol for heart disease risk reduction. New findings indicate that if cholesterol dips too low, it may boost the risk of hemorrhagic stroke, according to researchers.
    Over a period of nine years, a Penn State-led study examined the relationship between low-density lipoprotein cholesterol — LDL, commonly known as “bad” cholesterol — and hemorrhagic stroke. This type of stroke occurs when a blood vessel bursts in the brain.
    The researchers found that participants with LDL cholesterol levels below 70 mg/dL had a higher risk of hemorrhagic stroke.
    Xiang Gao, associate professor of nutritional sciences and director of the Nutritional Epidemiology Lab at Penn State, said the results — published today (date) in Neurology — may help refine and personalize recommendations for ideal target cholesterol levels.
    “As is true with many things in nutrition, moderation and balance is key when deciding the optimal target level of LDL cholesterol,” Gao said. “You can’t go to either extreme — too high or too low. And if you’re at a high risk for hemorrhagic stroke due to family history or risk factors like high blood pressure and heavy alcohol drinking, you may want to be extra careful about LDL cholesterol levels.”
    According to the researchers, low LDL cholesterol is recommended as a way to reduce the risk of a heart attack or ischemic stroke — the latter when a blood vessel in the brain becomes blocked by a clot. But previous research has suggested a link between very low LDL cholesterol levels and hemorrhagic stroke.
    Chaoran Ma, a nutritional sciences graduate student at Penn State, said that while previous studies suggested this connection, there was a need for additional validation in a separate cohort.
    “For our study, we wanted to expand the scope of knowledge in this area by investigating the issue prospectively in a large cohort with multiple LDL cholesterol measurements to capture variation over time,” Ma said.
    The study included 96,043 participants with no history of stroke, heart attack or cancer when the study began. LDL cholesterol levels were measured when the study began and yearly thereafter for nine years. Reported incidents of hemorrhagic stroke were confirmed by medical records.
    The researchers found that participants who had LDL cholesterol levels between 70 and 99 mg/dL had a similar risk of hemorrhagic stroke. But, when LDL cholesterol levels dipped below 70 mg/dL, the risk of hemorrhagic stroke increased significantly. For example, the risk increased by 169 percent for participants with LDL levels less than 50mg/dL relative to those with LDL levels between 70 and 99 mg/dL. These findings were consistent after controlling for age, sex, blood pressure and medication.
    “Traditionally, an LDL cholesterol level of more than 100 mg/dL had been considered as optimal for the general population and lower in individuals at elevated risk of heart disease,” Gao said. “We observed that the risk of hemorrhagic stroke increased in individuals with LDL cholesterol levels below 70 mg/dL. This observation, if confirmed, has important implications for treatment targets.”
    Ma said the findings may be able to help health care professionals continue to refine guidelines.
    “The results were based on a large community-based study, which is an advantage because it focused on healthy people in a non-clinical setting,” Ma said.

    First published April 10, 2019, DOI: https://doi.org/10.1212/WNL.0000000000007454
    Abstract
    Objective To examine the association between lipid levels and hemorrhagic stroke risk among women.
    Methods We performed a prospective cohort study among 27,937 women enrolled in the Women's Health Study with measured total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), as well as triglycerides. Strokes were confirmed by medical record review. We used Cox proportional hazards models to analyze associations between lipid categories and hemorrhagic stroke risk.
    Results During a mean of 19.3 years of follow-up, 137 hemorrhagic strokes occurred. Compared to those with LDL-C levels 100–129.9 mg/dL, after multivariable adjustment, those with LDL-C levels <70 mg/dL had 2.17 times the risk (95% confidence interval [CI] 1.05, 4.48) of experiencing a hemorrhagic stroke. No significant increase in risk was seen for those with LDL-C levels 130–159.9 mg/dL (relative risk [RR] 1.14; 95% CI 0.72, 1.80) or 70–99.9 mg/dL (RR 1.25; 95% CI 0.76, 2.04). There was a suggestion, although not significant, of increased risk for those with LDL-C levels ≥160 mg/dL (RR 1.53; 95% CI 0.92, 2.52). Women in the lowest quartile of triglycerides had a significantly increased risk of hemorrhagic stroke compared to women in the top quartile after multivariable adjustment (RR 2.00; 95% CI 1.18, 3.39). We observed no significant associations between total cholesterol or HDL-C levels and hemorrhagic stroke risk.
    Conclusion LDL-C levels <70 mg/dL and low triglyceride levels were associated with increased risk of hemorrhagic stroke among women.

  38. after the the life scare this kenneth guy had and then went through radical changes in his lifestyle and diet, he think, jeese, I better get down to the university and study Interdisciplinary Social Sciences..lol never mind studying fitness or nutrition, I've to got know how the rest of the country is gonna deal with their idiologies, hahahahah

  39. I've also read that it really starts with inflamation, which cause ridges or breaks in the endothelial cell lining for the LdL to lodge under in the first place. So its good to keep in mind foods that are anti inflamatory.

  40. Blood vessels don't get stucked by "bad cholesterol", I understand that this is a old video, but there are evidence that shows something else…. All blood circulation disseases are caused because the immune system fails absorb the extra lipide and glucide that someone eats and then it fails and explodes trought the arteries, and after to many of those explosions, the process that it shown in the video happens…. https://curiositystream.com/video/2465/keys-to-overcoming-modern-day-diseases
