Q&A: Cholesterol - Physical Exercise

Q: If I exercise a lot and in good form do I have to be worried about my cholesterol level?

A: Even tough it is true that the physical exercise is the best way to increase the levels of HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) in the blood and in the same time maintaining a healthy body weight and improving the total fitness of your heart, however exercising does not guarantee that the levels of you blood cholesterol will be acceptable. There are many other factors that will affect your levels of the blood cholesterol, such as your lifestyle, you diet, smoking, your genetic, your age and gender. The only way to ease your mind about cholesterol would be to see your doctor and have a blood test.
