Menopause and cholesterol
I have just gone through menopause, and my physician prescribed me a test to assess my lipid profile. Is there a connection?
Indeed. After women go through menopause, their bad cholesterol levels tend to increase.2
Monitor cholesterol as early as possible
I am 25 years old. Should I have my cholesterol checked?
Cholesterol level checks should begin when you are young, since clogging of the arteries is a progressive process that takes many years.2
