Health Tip: At Risk for High Cholesterol?

Risk factors include obesity

(HealthDay News) -- Risk factors for high cholesterol include things you can't control, such as age, gender and family history. But lifestyle choices -- factors you can control -- are a big part of the equation, too.

The Cleveland Clinic says controllable risk factors for high cholesterol include:

  • Whether your diet is high in saturated fat and cholesterol.
  • Whether you're overweight/obese.
  • Whether you're getting enough regular exercise.
  • Whether you have emotional stress and turn to unhealthy habits to help manage that stress.
