Control Cholesterol Level

About "Control Cholesterol Level"

High cholesterol levels are a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases, pancreatitis, and other diseases, so it is essential to control the blood cholesterol level. The total cholesterol level for a healthy adult should be less than 200 mg/dL. To control it, reduce the intake of saturated and trans fat and eat a diet rich in fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and protein.
