what is the difference between high blood pressure and cholesterol?
Posted 3 years ago in Cholesterol by SaladHack
Blood pressure is a condition and cholesterol is a substance. Your blood pressure reading could be normal or too high and the amount of choleserol in your body could also be within the proper range or excessive.Besides, medical concerns will soon need to be run through the office of Obama, and people could be made to feel guilty for living if treatment is too expensive or if they don't meet arbitrary standards for "quality of life." So stop worrying about things and place your trust in our savior.
High blood pressure means that your blood vessels are not as elastic as they should be. When your heart beats and forces blood through the vessels, because they can't stretch, the pressure stays high, which causes damage to the vessels.High cholesterol in your blood will deposit on your blood vessels, just like fat and gunk will narrow your drain pipes. These deposits on your blood vessels make them less elastic, leading to high blood pressure.To make things complicated, part of high cholesterol is from genetics. Part of it is determined by how much saturated fat you eat (NOT how much cholesterol you eat). Your body turns saturated fat that you eat into cholesterol in your body.Eating more fiber (especially oat fiber) will remove some of the cholesterol from your body. Your body injects cholesterol into your intestines to help break up and digest fat in your diet, and then the cholesterol is reabsorbed along with the dietary fat. If you have oat fiber in your intestines, it soaks up the cholesterol so that your body can't reabsorb it. Statin drugs do the same thing, but they have some unfortunate side effects.
High blood pressure is the amount of force on the sides of your veins and arteries as your heart beats.Cholesterol is the substance that builds up on the sides of your veins and arteries and eventually clogs them...
