Seasons affect cholesterol

Cholesterol foodsThe Cholesterol level increases and decreases in winter in summer, suggesting the possibility of modifying any necessary treatment, say experts from the Cleveland Clinic following a study which recruited 517 men and women aged 20 to 70 years of age. Doctors say that women and patients with cholesterol levels above normal are more subject to seasonal changes. These data provide an explanation of all is to reduce cholesterol levels through diet and exercise, why cholesterol does not diminish in winter. Entirely possible reason, according to U.S. researchers for reducing cholesterol levels in the summer is to increase the volume of circulating blood, which occurred in the warm weather. Physical activity and reducing the mass of the body are capable of reducing cholesterol levels, namely in winter most people tend to increase weight, which is associated with a sedentary lifestyle. Studies show an average winter increase the level of cholesterol by 4 mg for men and with 5,4 mg for women. Seasonal fluctuations in the level of 11 mg for men and 18 mg for women have been found in patients with initially high levels of cholesterol – more than 240 mg.
The next phase of its investigation specialists will carry out further research to explain the more pronounced fluctuations of cholesterol in women. They recommend that doctors before each treatment to measure cholesterol levels in several times to reduce the likelihood of error.
