Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure and Diabetes

Cholesterol is an organic substance that body uses to produce vitamin D, make certain hormones and build healthy cells. High cholesterol and diabetes are linked to each other. Diabetes can disturb the balance between HDL and LDL cholesterol levels. LDL particles of the people with diabetes tend to stick to arteries and can easily damage blood vessel walls. Glucose coated LDL remains in the bloodstream longer and may lead to the formation of plaque. Low HDL levels are seen in the people with diabetes. Both of these increase the risk of heart and artery disease. There is a link between high blood pressure (also called hypertension) and high cholesterol. When the arteries become narrowed and hardened with cholesterol plaque, the heart has to force much harder to pump blood through them. As a result, blood pressure becomes abruptly high.

  • Good (HDL) and bad (LDL) cholesterols
  • Dietary sources of cholesterol
  • Impaired blood vessels
  • Circulation problems
  • Increase in the amount of body fluids
  • Changes in insulin management
  • Lifestyle changes to lower cholesterol
