CHOLESTEROL AND THE HEART

Dr. Rajendra Kumar

Cholesterol is a waxy material and crystaline substance of a fatty nature which is found in many food items such as milk, cheese, butter, ghee, eggs, fish, chicken, pork beaf and goat meat. It is found in the brain, nerves, liver, blood and bile. Cholesterol is not easily soluble in the blood or water and may crystallize in the gall bladder and along the arterial walls. It forms Vitamin-D on irradiation. Cholesterol is essential for the fomation of hormones, building of cells, make hormones for the proper functioning of body cells and development of brain cells. A vegetarian consumes 200mg to 400mg of cholesterol daily while non-vegetarian consumes 400mg to 600mg of cholesterol. It is produced in the liver which fulfil the need in case of lesser intake. It combines with water soluble substance forming ehylomicrons, a form of lipoprotein (fats combines with proteins) in the liver. Very dense particles settle down and low density ones remain on the top when the blood is centrifuged. It may be very low density lipo-protein (VLDL), low density lipoprotein (LDL), high density lipo-protein (HDL). On removal of triglycerides (a type of fat produced by the liver) from, VLDL the LDL becomes the most-rich-cholesterol lipoprotein in the blood. Excessive accumulation of LDL in the blood gets deposited in the walls of the arteries resulting in clogging and narrowing of the arteries. LDL is known as bad cholestrol and HDL is known as good cholesterol. So, let us not always be scared of a high cholesterol level in the blood. As stated above, the high level of cholesterol (the HDL) is always good.

Level/Risk LDL(mg/100 ml) HDL(mg) Triglycerides(mg) Total Cholesterol(mg)
Desirable normal level < 130 36-45 (men)
40-66 (women)
100-200 <200
More Risk 130-159 25-35 200 upto 300 200-239
High Risk >160 <25 >300 >240

For Children : Cholesterol acceptable < 170 and is very high when > 200

The ratio of total cholesterol, HDL = (Total Cholestrol/HDL)=upto 4.50, indicates low

risk of heart attack but higher the ratio of 4.50, the higher is the risk.
Coffee raises cholesterol, blood pressure, and heart beats.
Following are the risk factors for coronary heart disease (CHD) :
Smoking, Alcohol, Pack of exercise, obesity, High B.P., high Cholesterol, high

Following are the importance helpful points :

1. High drink reduces the blood cloting by lowering the fibrinogen.
2. Fish and fish-oil reduce cholesterol, hence reduces the risk of heart disease.
3. Garlic prevents heart disease. But do not take it empty stomach.
4. Reduce blood cholesterol and risk of heart attacks. There is no cholesterol in Banana, Apple Juice, Mango, Cashew Nuts, Almonds, Coconut, Cabbage, Carrots, Cucumbers, Spinach, Lady finger, Vegetables, whites of eggs, Moong, beer, whiskey, Tea and Coffee. These may be eaten on advice of the physician.
5. Unsaturated oils such as olive oil, almond, Canola, Vegetable oil sun flower, Safflower, Sesame and ground nut, are desirable. More fibre intakes, bread made of whole grains, boiled potatos with skin, bran, vegetables, fruits, salads, skimmed milk; yoghurt. During heart attack, TLC and relative % age of poly-morphonuclear are increased temporarily, blood pressure falls-systolic pressure as low as 90, pulse may reveal no abnormality except faster 100 to 110 beats per min.; ESR raised, increase in the activity of enzymes SGOT & SLDH establishes diagnosis of heart attack. Angina is manifested by chest pain on exertion usually in the form of heavy weight in the central chest. Pain may radiate to left arm, jaw, back-shoulder, or neck. Pain may be associated with shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, sweating and the patient may be pallor. Rest is advised.
