What Are My Cholesterol Levels (HDL, LDL, triglycerides): Good or Bad??

Cholesterol, fats, blood and our diet.

These words are connected. However, we don't often think about the fact they relate to each other.

Not only sugar, but also fat is important for the body. It is an energy reserve. And not only that.

Fat is found throughout the body and is essential for life. It is part of cells, cell membranes and other components of the smallest and largest structures of the bodies of living organisms.

In addition to its storage function, it is necessary for fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K.

Fats are characterized by high energy expenditure.

1g of fat = approximately 38.9 kJ of energy.

We have different requirements for fat consumption throughout our lives. In children, it is 4 to 5 grams of fat per 1 kilogram of body weight for 1 day.

For adults, approximately 1 gram of fat per 1 kilogram of body weight for 1 day is sufficient.

Just to illustrate:
A 20 kg child should consume approximately 80-100 grams of fat in one day.
An 80 kg adult should take in approximately 80 grams of fat per day.

It is easier to see some of the needs of the body by looking at the numbers. It is neither good to eat very little nor is it good to eat a lot. Both have their downsides, which can complicate an individual's health.

That is why it is important to remember the following words: rational nutrition. That means a balanced diet containing all nutrients.

Fats, or lipids, are stuff such as cholesterol, LDL (bad), HDL (good), triglycerides. These types are the most important to keep track of for our purposes.

It is reported that HDL, i.e. the good cholesterol, eats up LDL, i.e.the bad cholesterol.

High cholesterol needs to be lowered. A balanced diet, an appropriate representation of nutrients, adequate physical activity will help.

Interestingly, some people have naturally higher blood cholesterol levels without any apparent cause.
