High cholesterol can lead to deadly atherosclerosis – can the condition be reversed?

There are invasive procedures that can be performed to unclog arteries, or to provide a path for blood to move past blockages.

Treatments can include angiography, angioplasty, and stenting – all of which involve a risk of complications.

How do you get high cholesterol?

The NHS explained it’s mostly caused by eating fatty foods, not exercising enough, being overweight, smoking and drinking alcohol.

Foods high in trans fat can contribute to high cholesterol levels, and are best avoided. These include:

  • Packaged cookies, cakes, donuts, and pastries
  • Packaged frosting
  • Commercially fried foods
  • buttered popcorn
  • Hydrogenated vegetable oils
  • Crackers
